I think the Amish women of Maine in the early 1900s were a clever group of ladies. 

It's written that Amish women would make whoopie pies out of leftover cake batter and pack them in their farmers' lunch boxes.   When the farmer would find these simple but tasty treats in their lunch they would shout "whoopie" in excitement.  

These ladies knew exactly what they had in mind when they packed these sweet treats that day. 

Two pieces of rich dark chocolate cake pressed together by an intoxicating vanilla rye buttercream is sure to make any man yell for "Whoopee"!
