Turkey Hill Features Original Lancaster County Whoopie Pie In Newest Fall Flavor

Limited edition flavor features the taste of original Amish recipe

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (October 1, 2011) — The origins of the Whoopie Pie, described by Wikipedia as "two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake ... with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them" might be debatable, but Turkey Hill believes its roots are strongly planted in the kitchens of Pennsylvania Dutch country. As a tribute to Lancaster County's version of the Whoopie Pie, Turkey Hill Dairy is introducing Whoopie Pie Limited Edition Premium Ice Cream.

"Though we can't prove it, we know generations of Lancaster County folks have enjoyed the simple deliciousness of this baked good that blends cake and cookie," said Quintin Frey, President of Turkey Hill Dairy and the grandson of Turkey Hill's founder. "While many others across the nation have tried to lay claim to the recipe, we want to set the record straight and honor our hometown treat by transforming it into a frozen delight for everyone to enjoy."

Featuring chocolate ice cream with Whoopie Pie pieces and creamy filling swirl, ice cream lovers will enjoy the local flavor of this home-baked good in a bowl or a cone.

In honor of this Lancaster County original, and the limited edition ice cream flavor, Turkey Hill is asking the public to help recognize the true home of the Whoopie Pie. Fans of Turkey Hill and the Whoopie Pie flavor can show their support on Turkey Hill's Facebook page, and will even have a chance to win the ultimate Whoopie Pie lover's prize pack!

Participants can enter by "liking" the Turkey Hill Dairy Facebook page starting October 1-but they will have to hurry, as the contest ends on October 31, 2011. One random winner will receive a Whoopie Pie Prize Pack that includes:

  • A one night's stay at Hershey Farm Inn, located in Lancaster County, Pa.
  • A basket of homemade Lancaster County Whoopie Pies
  • A family 4-pack of tickets to the Turkey Hill Experience (where the science of making ice cream comes to life with interactive exhibits that let you create your own virtual ice cream flavor, become the star of an ice cream commercial and explore the history of Turkey Hill, one delicious sample at a time)
  • One-month's supply of Turkey Hill Whoopie Pie Ice Cream
