About Auntie's House
Maine Originals, Inc. opened as a small family owned gift store in the center square of Skowhegan, ME in 2003. It became a popular small shop in the community, known for offering original fine art by well known Maine artists, unique hand-made gifts from the local area, and delicious hand-crafted gourmet chocolates. In February, 2012 Maine Originals created the now famous Auntie’s House brand bakery which is now in our new location in Kennebunk, Maine. Auntie's House serves up fresh home-made style giant cookies, whoopie pies, cheesecakes, fruit and custard pies, cakes, ice cream MooseWiches, and we created a never before experienced treat – the original Whoopie Ball.
Auntie's House is located in the Fire House Place Plaza, near the corner of Port Rd (Rt 9A) and Western Ave (Rt 9) in the Lower Village next to the Fire Department. We're just a short drive from the centers of our surrounding towns such as Biddeford, Alfred, Arundle, Wells, Sanford, and we're an easy five minute stroll right around the corner from historic Kennebunkport. If you have a special order, you can stop in or call us (207) 204-0338 during our regular business hours, or you can send us an email or use the form on our contact page.
Have you ever seen a giant dancing cookie strutting around the Springvale area or whooping it up with the crowd in a Sanford parade? You're not seeing things.....that's MUNCHER! He's our enthusiastic (and slightly mischievous) cookie mascot. You may spot him hanging around Auntie's House, marching in one of Sanford's holiday parades, or even giving out high-fives at the Acton Fair. Muncher loves to make a spectacle of himself in public, he also enjoys visiting birthday parties and making special deliveries!

What's a Whoopie Ball, you ask? Well, let's just say that once you try one you'll never forget. A Whoopie Ball is an original Auntie's House creation that is based on our classic whoopie pies. We use the same quality ingredients and form them into a round, cream filled chocolate delight, then dip them in luxurious gourmet dark chocolate. People simply can't get enough of them! If our Classic Whoopie Ball isn't enough, you can also choose smooth peanut butter, tropical coconut, espresso, or other amazing flavors! Guaranteed to make you smile - and want more!
Ice Cream MooseWiches
Everyone loves ice cream! Auntie is no exception, so she took two of her giant home-made cookies and a hefty scoop of premium quality local ice cream and turned them into an outrageous ice cream treat. The MooseWich was born! With flavors like Chocolate Chip Chocolate, Snickerdoodle Vanilla, and Dark Chocolate Chip Chocolate, you're sure to find exactly what your craving for in the heat of the day. While the original MooseWich is truely an ice-cold masterpiece, we also created the Jr MooseWich for those who may prefer a slightly smaller size.
We all know what a Whoopie Pie is. Auntie's House whoopie pies are definitely delicious, we decided to put our own spin of the ever popular New England tradition.
