It’s hard to believe but here at gifts.com we are beginning our research on what will be the best gifts to give this holiday season. Today, we went to the Holiday Media Gift Guide Event where the media gets a sneak preview of new products that hope to be a hit for the holidays. The whole guru team attended and each of us found ideas that were perfect for our areas of expertise. We’re your ticket to see what’s going to be hot ahead of the curve! Let me tell you that as a gift guru I thought I had seen it all when it comes to gourmet goodies, but nothing can compare to what I am about to share with you!

The Gift: Jumbo Chocolate Whoopie Pie

Price: $26.00

Who is it a good gift for?

Anyone who loves sweets, food trends, gourmet goodies or dessert in general.


When I went to the Wicked Whoopies booth, I thought I was just going to look at a variety of flavors of whoopies. No big whoop. But when I turned my head, I saw something that was unbelievable…a jumbo whoopie pie that weighs in at around 5 pounds and can feed 12-18 people! I have seen giant versions of lots of treats over the years from the giant gummy bear to the giant fortune cookie but the whoopie pie takes the cake. As the owner of Wicked Whoopies, Amy, would say, “Whoopie pies are just an inside out cupcake”. And do you know what? She is 100% correct! A whoopie pie is two round cakes with all of the whipped frosting in the middle. YUM. Move over birthday cake, you have met your rival.

Amy was kind enough to give me a jumbo whoopie pie and some of the mini ones to taste. Of course, I cannot taste the jumbo all on my own but I know the Gifts.com team will appreciate this!
