The Search for Hostess Cakes at the Jersey Shore
This is a sad day.
In case you missed it, Hostess has gone out of business. Closed. Poof. Finito.
Naturally, I’m now jonesing for the overly sweet processed delicacies I haven’t had (or craved) in years.
I sent Jason Matthews out to pick up a supply of Hostess cakes before they’re gone for good…and he came back from our local Walmart empty handed. (Where’s the dedication to the cause Matthews??)
Think your Drake’s Ring Dings are safe? Nope, they’re owned by Hostess too!
Twinkies, SnoBalls, Zingers, Ho-Hos, Ding Dongs, Fruit Pies…and who could forget the Cupcakes with the swirly icing??
Even Wonder bread! Gone! You can’t have a Fluffernutter if it’s not on Wonder bread!
Yeah, I’m sure someone will buy the name and keep making them, but whatever, it’s not the same.
So where can we stock up? Where’s the Hostess stash?
Sidenote to all the Hostess workers on strike: How’d that work out for ya?
