Then I realized exactly what Hostess makes. And I died a little bit inside.
First of all, the best donuts in the world, Donettes, will soon go the way of the dinosaur. IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT DONETTES. Seriously. So I haven't had these delicious breakfast treats in 20ish years. Who cares. They are FABULOUS.
OMG THE FRUIT PIES. You have never tasted happiness if you haven't had Hostess fruit pies.
I was a rink rat as a little girl. My brother played hockey, I played hockey for a time, and I figure skated for about 15 years (lessons and teaching). The snack bar at the rink sold these fruit pies for 50 cents (they also sold Jax for 50 cents. I was a happy kid). Can you imagine how many of these delectable fruit pies I had? Cherry was my favorite. Natch.
I was not a Ho Ho's, Ding Dong, or Sno Ball fan, but I know many people
Fare Thee Well Hostess. I'm sorry the unions killed you.
