Hostess Cupcakes Coming Back?

It's funny how you can miss something you likely haven't bought much in decades, but many Americans got very sad about the demise of Hostess Brands several months back. The Wonder Bread (and other breads) division were gobbled up already, but the Twinkies and Ho-Hos have been mia ever since. And in the meantime, other companies have really stepped up their game, notably Tastykake and Little Debbie, which has packaging very much like just about every Hostess Brand, prominently displayed where the Ding Dongs used to be!

Well, move over Debbie (you vulture), Hostess is coming back!

  1. Will the Hostess Cupcake be back again soon? My favorite and my children's favortie too since they were in grade school. Now they are 40+ years. When I told them Hostess was closing the store where we live one of my sons said "oh no" my favorite, Twinkies and the choclolate Ding Dongs, drats. If another buyer takes over will the Hostess Cupcake taste the same??

  2. Looks like they'll be back by September. They're using different bakeries, but I've gotta think they'd use the same recipes.

  5. The tough part will be getting shelf space back. At or store, it would be tough for them to get shelf space because of Little Debbie, Great Value and other brands.

  6. Go ahead and pay your high prices for hostess; I will take Little Debbie any day! Better cake and better company.
