SPOTTED: Hostess Limited Edition Mermaid CupCakes

Hostess Limited Edition Mermaid CupCakes

No new flavor here, it’s just frosted yellow cake, a creamy filling, and a 1980s Miami Vice paint job. (Spotted by John R at Walmart.)

  1. I feel like quality has gone down over the years. I recall a better product back in the 1980s when I was a child. It just seems like an inferior product these days.

  2. So does this taste like a regular cupcake but its marketed and labeled as Mermaid?
    I must be missing something here.

  3. Please bring back ” little mermaid” cupcakes!! I’ve never enjoyed a cupcake so much. Now there gone o refuse to buy any other Ebay do not compare to the mermaid!!!! Please,please bring em bacl
