Would you like to know what can shoot me straight back to 6thgrade in a hurry? Hostess® HoHos®. Those were my lunch of choice back then. I mean, sure, my mom packed sandwiches and bags of chips, but we all know my main focus was on the cake. I haven’t changed much, have I?
What about those Hostess® CupCakes® with the squiggle frosting on top? I can’t look at those without instantly transforming into a freckle-faced, skinny, little girl child.
Twinkies®? Well, I’m going to be honest here and admit I was 29 years old the first time I ever ate a Twinkie®. And, um, SURPRISE! I’m 29 years old right now. 29 has been a very exciting year. I’m not sure why I never ate a Twinkie® as a child. It probably had something to do with the fact that I was always reaching for the chocolatey treats instead of the vanilla flavored ones. The, one day, someone handed me a deep fried Twinkie®, and I scarfed that bad boy down. It was divine.
I’ve since eaten a few Twinkies® straight from the package, no frying involved. I’m a Twinkie® convert.
Did y’all know that Hostess® has a couple of new products out?
Chocolate Crème Twinkies® just happen to be one of them. Um, let me go ahead and repeat that for you. Chocolate Crème Twinkies®. Are you at a loss for words? I kind of am. I mean, you have that delicious vanilla Twinkie® cake, and then you have this creamy, chocolatey concoction oozing out of the center? Heaven, y’all. Pure heaven.
Oh and did I fail to talk about Donettes®? I didn’t mention those taking me right back to childhood, because I still eat them quite often. They are so convenient and make a great quick breakfast for mornings we’re required to be up and out of the house all too early.
These new Frosted Devil’s Food Donettes® have a delicious chocolatey coating on the outside, just like the other version, but the inside is full of chocolatey goodness. My kids dunked them in milk for breakfast and declared me the best mother ever.
The thing is, I bake a lot. I don’t buy a ton of prepackaged treats for my kids. Every now and then, though, I grab them a little something from the store that reminds me of my own childhood, and I surprise the kids (and husband!) with them. Sure, they like my homemade brownies and warm from the oven cookies, but they go a little crazy over the Hostess® treats.
Donettes® are one of the most popular Hostess® products, and they are also my favorite!
