So Strawberry Twinkies came back for Valentine’s Day and now they’re back for spring. I don’t think Hostess understands what “limited edition” means. (Spotted by Scott K at Market District.)

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Oh wait, that passed. Just in time for a Shrek movie? (Spotted by Scott K at Market District.)

  1. Hostess is such a poor lame company these days. Quality sucks, nothing new really but they advertise everything like its some unique new item or flavor. I’ve long given up on them.

  2. Peanut butter Ho-Hos sounds like a fine idea, and I’ll be on the lookout for those. I think Mrs. Freshley’s and/or Tastykake has had something similar.

  3. The single serving offerings you find off to the side are my preferred introduction. I wish Little Debbie did the same. I can’t tell you how many opened boxes of Bat Brownies, (St. Patrick’s Day-themed) green cupcakes, rolls, (Christmas-themed) peppermint rolls and wafer bars in the cabinet. All because they looked intense on the store shelves, bought ’em, tried ’em, hated ’em.
    Hostess offered the white fudge Ding-Dongs and chocolate Twinkies in single-serves, I can’t find the PB Ho-Hos yet, but they’re perfect because I won’t have an opened big box if I don’t like any or all. But there’s that double-edged sword. You pay $1 for a single-serve, $2.50-$3 get you an entire box of 8 or 10.
    Well played.
