Chocolate Gobs

You might wonder why there is a picture of some chocolate whoopie pies, called Chocolate Gobs. Well, it's because that's what people used to call the whoopee pies people. I don't know if i'm being gullable here but I heard this story that every time someone brought whoopie pies, the kids would scream "whoopieeee" ,and that's how the name was then changed. True story? 0_o
