From the traditional chocolate with vanilla or marshmallow filling to a more adventurous riff with flavors like maple bacon or pineapple upside-down cake, the whoopie pie is one of those find-them-everywhere New Hampshire treats. Matt Ingersoll takes a closer look at the whoopie pie and tells you where to go for your own whoopies.

Also on the cover: Dan Szczesny takes a hike to a really cool rock in Hooksett; see page 14.
