SPOTTED: Hostess Twinkies and Ding Dongs Dessert Kits

Hostess Twinkies Dessert Kit

Hostess Ding Dongs Dessert Kit

Carl’s Jr.’s discontinued Hostess Ding Dongs Ice Cream Sandwich was a funner and easier dessert. Also, what does “Flavor reference Twinkies cake not included” mean? Is that a confusing way to say Twinkies cake is not included or that this doesn’t taste like Twinkies. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)

  1. It means that the actual cake is not included in the mix. I guess they are referring the cake flavor. They should included a pouch of cake crumbs.

    1. It actually means they dont give you a cake (as a taste reference). So like some people (crazy reviewers) might want to eat the original then this treat to compare this flavor to the original reference. They would need to buy the twinkies, the picture on the box does not mean there is one inside.

  2. This only works if you have the fancy clear glass objects to put the product into (and the patience to do same). I have neither. Just give me a Ding-Dong and call it a day.
