Wicked Goodies

Etymology of Wicked Goodies

In Massachusetts, the massholes say wicked a lot.

“The clam chowda is wicked hot.”
“The Pats are wicked pissah.”
“I’m wicked sick of shovelin’ snow.” 

Based on the masshole dialect, the word means very, so Wicked Goodies, translated literally, means extra good desserts. According to alternative dialects, wicked also means naughty as a fornicake, gluttonous as Augustus Gloop, and fantastical as a giant gingerbread sandcastle.
