SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Hostess Limited Edition Red, White & Blue Twinkies

Hostess Limited Edition Red, White & Blue! Twinkies

Red and blue dots are the best Hostess could do to make them festive. How about put some popping candy in the cream or bake them into the cake to make it like fireworks are going off in our mouths. (Spotted by Josh C at Meijer.)

    1. Sorry Matt, I live for limited-edition products like this – who doesn’t love a holiday?

      I had to fight my kids off from my newly-acquired red, white and blue Rice Krispies – I guess it runs in my family.

  1. They should do a promotion where for every box they sell, they give away a free one to an overweight kid in Houston, Detroit, LA, Birmingham or Atlanta. Murica!

  2. I tried to buy these “Red, White, and Blue” Twinkies from Target today (Chesapeake, VA) – when they scanned them the register popped up with a message saying “Do not sell item – call supervisor”. They took them from my bag and would not sell them to me with no explanation whatsoever. Not sure if there is some sort of recall or what.
