When farmers would find these treats in their lunch, they would shout "Whoopie!"

Several variations of whoopie pie cakes have been popular at the Ontelaunee Energy Center during their spring turbine maintenance outages, contributing to employee morale so much that they have been heard loudly proclaiming "Whoopie"!
