I can rememeber Hostess from wayyy back. My dad owned a lunheonette that had a huge display case of Hostess (and Drake) goodies. Prominently places, as usual, were the Twinkees. Not my favorite (the chocolate cupcakes with the squiggly lines are), it's hard to believe these icons of snack food are going away.
Or will they? Perhaps another company will buy the rights to make these treats and satisfy generations of Twinkee lovers. I hope so.
