The yellow cupcakes with their orange/yellow frosting always called to me. But I always passed them up. Way too much sugar for me.

The Hostess company has 30 brands that are going under posters. A whole lot of empty shelf space coming.

No more raspberry Zingers?!!! I love those! I don't get them more than once or twice a year though. Maybe that's why they're calling it quits.

I may have to hunt down a package of snowballs!

I'm sure iconic brands like "Twinkie" and "Wonder Bread" will get snatched up by other companies, but who knows if they will be the same recipes. Other things like the pies, raspberry zingers, and snowballs, could become extinct.

I remember always wanting the hostess snowballs when I'd see other kids eating them in the lunch room. My mom made all of the baked goods in our house, and things like snowballs weren't in the budget. To think, I had to endure a childhood of homemade sweets!

And no one turned your mother in for child abuse? What heartless neighbors you had.

None of the above. I can't remember the last time I had one. I used to get the apple pies regularly at work, but that was years ago.

Yeah, this is pretty much where I stand as well. I used to eat stuff like this when I was a kid, but I honestly can't remember the last time I had a Twinkie. I would guess it's been close to 40 years.
