Veganville Voopee Pies!

(Vegan) Pumpkin Voopee Pies.  Delivered to my door.

Dave being Ninja Cat and crying at the camera for a snack!

Gigi from VEGANVILLE sent me this box of goodies, which are quite the After-Thanksgiving treat!  I loved the cute packaging and... she sent me SIX VOOPEE PIES!  SIX!  That's enough dessert for AT LEAST two days (haha)!

- Gigi.  She rocks.  Not only are her desserts delicious, but she is also super sweet.  And, she ships quickly.  Any time spent waiting for dessert is a sad and lonely time, but she finds a way to make it manageable.
- The Packaging.  The pies came individually wrapped in a pastry box (which is more than I can say for a lot of snail mail desserts...), wrapped in a paper bag, and packaged in a reused Whole Foods bag.  The layering of the paper saved the pastry box, as it was monsooning out (I am aware that monsooning isn't a word, but I like it so I'm going for it).  
- The Voopee Pies.  They were delicious, even after surviving the trip from California to Pennsylvania, and then sitting in the post office over the weekend.  They were moist, pumpkin-y (but not too much, which was nice- it's easy to go overboard when you're dealing with pumpkin!), and didn't fall apart:

Look at that!  Perfect!  My favorite place to get whoopie pies in Philly does them well, but they're a disaster of a mess.  I think this cake made about 4 crumbs (which I ate).  I didn't even know that this was possible.

- I can honestly say that there were none with these!  I am the first to admit a problem, too.  There is a bakery in Philly that I was super excited for, but was a huge let down and I have never been back.  That is not the case with VEGANVILLE's desserts.  Gigi knows what she is doing!

If you'd like to check out the delicious snacks Gigi has to offer, check out VEGANVILLE's Etsy Shop.  It offers various flavors of Voopee Pies, cookies, and other lovely concoctions.  The Swedish Fish Cupcakes really caught my eye:

How cute are those?!!  Thanks, Gigi!:)
