3/1/2012 8:53:15LizMy brother used to work for Hostess, in a warehouse loading trucks at night, by himself.
When trucks would bring back nearly expired products, he would call us, and we would go gorge ourselves on twinkies and dindongs at 10pm!

3/1/2012 9:08:11AmyI remember when I was young, my dad and I would walk to the neighborhood grocery store for Hostess Cupcakes...the ones with the curly frosting across the top. We didn't go often, but I remember think it was such a huge deal with with to the store with my dad. In fact, next time he visits, I think we will have to get some cupcakes. I wonder if he remembers that too?Nope!

3/1/2012 9:09:35EI know what you mean about the Frosted Devil's Food Donettes! I was never a big fan of the originals...and then I tried these. Addict! Way to go, Hostess!
5
3/1/2012 9:13:54NeuromamaWe just discovered those new Donettes on a recent road trip. I bought them for the kids and wound up eating the entire family-size bag myself. They are SO GOOD...and, I'm not usually a Donettes fan.
6
3/1/2012 9:15:55SharleneI remember when I going to my aunt's house when I was a kid, they always had HoHos in the fridge (wrapped in foil!) and it was like Christmas, I was good for at least two within the first half hour of my visit. We sometimes had them at home but at my aunts, they were always available!
7
3/1/2012 9:17:05JanetFor my husband's 30th BD I surprised him with a cake decorated like a bikini. The top, of course, was Hostess SnoBalls. It was very well received by the guests, especially the men.
8
3/1/2012 9:17:25RamblingMotherDingDongs are my fav and I remember when they were King Dons and wrapped in foil. Plus they are absolutely unbeatable frozen.nope
9
3/1/2012 9:22:47CindyWhen I was little my mom would always buy Ding Dongs when she went grocery shopping. As soon as she came home, my sister and I would divide up the box, give two to my dad, and hide the rest in various places so the other couldn't eat them. Sometimes we would barter with them. Sometimes we would forget where we hid them and find them months later, long after they were fit to eat. But we usually ate them anyway.
10
3/1/2012 9:24:27KarenI haven't had SnoBalls in years. It is something I can remember having as a speical treat as a kid (a FEW years ago). I must get some now!
11
3/1/2012 9:36:05bpWWhen i was in the Marines i regularly ran the 4.6 mile (clocked by the car odometer) to work. My husband always accompanied me.

In his truck.

He would drive from parking spot to parking spot, w/a bag of the Hostess Donettes and a huge cup of coffee.

When i got to work he would give me the left overs (he was over 6 foot, hated running but loved to eat goodies). I'd take what was left of the bag, pour me a coffee from the coffee mess and go take a shower, put on my uniform and have breakfast at the same time.

I no longer run regularly, but i do the donettes and coffee a lot.
12
3/1/2012 9:38:35MeganThis may not be funny to most people..but on my first date with my now husband, we went on a romantic drive and he decided to pull over to the nearest gas station and came back with both the powdered and chocolate version and proceded to eat both while driving. Everytime I see those little donettes I think of that night.
13
3/1/2012 9:52:40RCMy mom would always buy us Hostess cupcakes as a treat when we were growing up. It's still my favorite comfort food.
14
3/1/2012 9:55:17MichelleMy favorite momory is eating twinkies in the rain with my bff while watching a ball game.
15
3/1/2012 10:12:25saraOn rare occasions, my mom would allow us to get a box of HoHos so we could have them in our school lunches for a few days. EVERY time, my dad would eat them for late night snacks and I would be SO MAD he had dared to eat MY treats!!!
Loved those HoHos! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
16
3/1/2012 10:13:41allisonWhen I was a teenager, I used to babysit a lot. One particular family had a 3-year-old little boy. The whole afternoon he kept telling me he wanted "pigs" to eat. I thought I must have not been understanding correctly b/c i was hearing "P-I-G-S" but surely he was saying something else, right? When his mother returned home, I asked what pigs were she went to the pantry and pulled out HoHos! They called them "pigs" b/c of the curly swirl like a pig's tail. To this day I call HoHos, pigs!
17
3/1/2012 10:19:45SurprisingWomanI can remember being a kid and mom always knowing if you snuck a Donette because your front would be covered in powdered sugar but they were so good you had to do it anyway.

3/1/2012 10:42:52Stacey TBig donette (original) fans here in our house! We take them on EVERY trip for the first morning breakfast, whether it's camping or a cruise! The kids love them! We tried the devils food and I have to say we didn't like them as much! As a kid I used to love to peel the marshmallowy coating off of snoballs and eat it! YUMMY
20
3/1/2012 10:48:47LinneaWhen I was a kid we always got to eat Donettes when we travelled and stayed in a hotel, or when we were camping. It made for a quick, easy and fun breakfast when we were away from home. To this day I crave Donettes when I travel with my family, and we often indulge!!Now I want one!!
21
3/1/2012 10:48:58CatherineI remember playing a version of 'chubby bunnies' with twinkies. Let's just say safety goggles should have been a requirement as those crumbs can fly and take out an eye! :o)You? Dislike change? May I offer you and 'Apple'? ;o)
22
3/1/2012 10:52:17MichelleWhen I was young (a very long time ago) I remember buying HoHos for a very special rare treat at school! Yeah, I'm that old...they actually sold HoHos in the school cafeteria!
23
3/1/2012 10:58:57Mami2jcnI remember my brother always getting Twinkies in his lunchbox but I never did (he was skinny, me not so much). I guess it's not a funny story, but it's the memory of wanting those Twinkies so bad that tortured me as a child. LOL.

3/1/2012 11:30:48RobinIn 2nd grade I was a VERY good negotiator, regularly managing to convince my deskmate to trade her oh so yummy twinkie for the apple my mom would give me. Oooh, I was so good... And so was the twinkie.
26
3/1/2012 11:34:58AmyA few years ago, we visited friends over Christmas and they had a new "as seen on TV" Twinkie Maker. Their daughter had just made some homemade Twinkies, and we liked them so much, that as soon as we got back to Texas we had to run out and buy a Twinkie maker ourselves. We've learned that Twinkies are awesome with your favorite flavor of cake mix. Better than the original. However, the creme filling is hard to recreate, and is hard to stuff correctly into the Twinkie.

If you have Donettes a lot at your house, my daughter will probably ask to move in with you. They are her favorite. She prefers powdered sugar, but she will eat any of them, I'm sure.

3/1/2012 11:42:04marci hursti remember when i was a kid in grade school eating ho-ho's for lunch and was amazed on how good they tasted--i would always have several with me and i would share them with my best friend Mary--Now my kids have them and they get to enjoy them with their school buddies.

3/1/2012 11:54:26JennaWhen I was much younger I had a roommate. We decided to get a dog. She really liked the idea of a beagle so we went to the Humane society and got a very cute Beagle named Buddy. Buddy was a riot, he would eat everything!!!! Once my roommate wasn't watching him and he ate 5 lbs of raw hamburger!!! Everytime we would go to the store we would pick up some kind of sweets, usually DingDongs, well we would have to be very careful because if we brought the bag that had the DingDongs in it and went out to get more groceries just in the time we went to the car he would get on the counter find the box, tear through the box, some how open the packages and eat them all!!!!! I would love to say we learned afte the first time but we lost many boxes.
30
3/1/2012 12:04:26MandyI've always been a Ho Hos girl myself. For some reason they are best if you carefully peel off the outer chocolaty coating (eating as your go of course) and then unroll the inside and lick the cream centers out before consuming the chocolate cake. Not sure how this tradition came about but it does make the treat last longer and therefor (in theory) I eat less of them.

3/1/2012 12:07:50LisaAt a birthday party when I was about 8 we had a twinkie eating contest! I remember 6 little girls with belly aches spending the night!Nah
34
3/1/2012 12:14:21Barbara KushnerI remember being in High School and running to the snack bar at break. I would get DingDongs, a three pack and a soda. Then I would hang-out with my friends and enjoy the Dingdongs. That is pretty much what I ate EVERY DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL at snack!! I even remember "running" on crutches to get to the snack bar!
35
3/1/2012 12:19:08Abby KWhen my mom was pregnant with me, she ate so many Hostess snacks, my dad was afraid I would come out looking like a SnoBall. True story.
36
3/1/2012 12:19:59Elizabeth McKinneyA couple of days before my 19th birthday, it began to snow. And snow. And SNOW! This was in 1993, and a blizzard basically shut down the southeast for two weeks. On my actual birthday, it was still snowing, we had no power or heat and it was cold! My mom hiked to the nearest convenience store, bought a couple of packages of Hostess Cupcakes and she put a birthday candle in mine. I blew it out as she and my brothers sang Happy Birthday. NOT the best party, but the cupcakes were great, and everytime I see one now, it instantly brings me back to that dark and cold night!
37
3/1/2012 12:27:01BethI *always* eat Donettes on road trips. They are the perfect car food!
38
3/1/2012 12:52:10LeeleeOh, my word. As a kid, my favorite was SnoBalls. I would get them from the local 7-11 anytime we had to go on a car trip. One time, I ate my SnoBalls and then fell asleep. Little did I know that my sleepiness was due to illness. Got to my grandparents house where I was forced to eat dinner. Not long after, I vomited. I cried and cried and everyone was worried and sympathetic. I was so inconsolable that finally my grandfather said "What can I get for you?" I said, "More SnoBalls, mine left my belly." Everyone laughed and my grandpa went right out and got me more. Wisely, he made me promise to wait until the next day to eat them. I am sure my parents appreciated that.
39
3/1/2012 13:20:47Pam in MissouriNo funny stories but just seeing the word Snoballs instantly transported me back to the vending machine hallway of my high school. Wasn't there a raspberry flavor? Yummo!
40
3/1/2012 13:30:01DaniThis is more of a fond memory I guess and current.. My 5 year old daughter is tube fed and has an oral aversion to everything...EXCEPT Donettes :) When her aversion started she wouldnt touch anything and was hospitalized for a few weeks when the tube was put in. The dietitians tried everything they could to get her to eat and one day one of the nurses left a pack on her desk and when my daughter walked by with her pole in hand to use the bathroom, she snagged the pack and happily ate them on the way...Donette crumbs trailing behind her LOL! Now we actually use them as bite therapy to make sure she doesnt loose her swallowing function.
41
3/1/2012 13:32:40In Due TimeI love getting donettes on roadtrips. NYEBoy gets them at the house occasionally but since I'm not the no carb no sugar route, I can't indulge. But boy do they taste good in the middle of the night with gas station coffee. LOL
42
3/1/2012 13:33:06genwe always had these at our hgh schoolsoftball games-i always wanted to sit on the bench so i could eat them. the twinkie defense - who knew??
43
3/1/2012 13:41:01StephI remember my mom occasionally buying DingDongs for us as an after school treat. I would peel off all of the chocolate first, save it on the foil, eat the rest of the DingDong and then go back and enjoy the peeled off chocolate. It would drive my mom nuts. What a fun memory!
44
3/1/2012 13:43:51Judy CHostess cupcakes....after they have been frozen, split in half, eat the bottom part first after taking out the cream, then savoring the top part...awwww. As kids my favorite memory was going to the Hostess Bread Store as we called it. The Day Old discount big family low income. The only way we got Hostess treats. So many memories!!it's snowing at my house!
45
3/1/2012 13:51:34sharonj1017When my sister-in-law was pregnant several years ago, she moved back in with her parents for a few months while her husband was deployed. Ding Dongs were her go-to snack, but unfortunately her father also had a sweet tooth and kept swiping them! (Anyone should know that you don't steal a pregnant woman's craving snack!). She finally took to hiding them away in the cabinet above the stove so he would take them. I felt so honored when she shared one with me, sneaking it out of it's hiding spot when he was in the other room!I also love Donettes!!! They are my downfall, I try to avoid buying the big bags because I will eat way more than I should! The 6-pack is a perfect serving size to keep my under control! LOL! Can't wait to try these new ones!
46
3/1/2012 13:59:13Rachel EnnisMy mother swears that everyday when she was a teenager in high school, her standard lunch was french fries, Pepsi Cola and a package of SuzyQ's.
Even to this day, with her 60th birthday rapidly approaching, if she's feeling down or blue, one of us kids will show up with SuzyQ's and all is right again in the world.
I have always been a HoHo's girl but it just sounds dirty so I don't tell many people that!!
47
3/1/2012 14:27:15Stephanie JonesI used to buy twinkies everyday in high school for lunch :)
48
3/1/2012 14:37:26ShonnaI LOVE the crumb Donettes! I used to buy a package every Friday in High School during lunch and would share them with my best friend. Every time I see a package, I still smile :)
49
3/1/2012 14:52:40Indiana LoriOh, were to start? My sister skipped every science class in high school to sneak out and eat HoHos with her girlfriends! Donettes have seen me through so many ups and downs. They are my go-to comfort food. I remember one disastrous car trip to see my in-laws, pregnant WITH food poisoning, 10 hours in the car, with a cranky 18 month old. I wanted to die. We stopped at a gas station so I could throw up (again), and I spied my treasured donettes on an end cap. Ate the package, and never threw up again. My stomach settled immediately. So there you have it...they are better than antibiotics.
50
3/1/2012 14:59:38Amy SiuI was on an Atkins-style diet for about 2/3 of the day. Then I said "screw it" and scarfed a bag of powdered Donettes. Never has anything tasted so good.
51
3/1/2012 15:37:44Kate Many moons ago, I ran a group home for young adults with developmental disabilities. On their birthdays, I would make whatever kind of cake they wanted. Well….Frank wanted a " Twinkie Cake" Um…sure…no problem big guy! I bought boxes of twinkies and layered twinkies on top of and beside one another and put layers of whipped cream to hold them together. It was quite the mess….when he came in while I was making it….He said, in typical Frank style….."OMG…..it is a Go* D*mn Twinkie Factory"!! I always thought that would be a great title if I ever wrote a book about my experiences with this group!!!
52
3/1/2012 16:11:37LisaTwinkies....frozen...in my Grandma's basement....sneaking down when we thought nobody knew and eating them straight from the freezer!!! Being as we were 6 and 3 we tossed the wrappers under the stairwell (was like a broom closet). After a few months of this my Grandma put a BIG bag of Twinkie wrappers on the table upstairs and asked if we knew anything about this......CAUGHT!
53
3/1/2012 16:47:15Annie at Urban VagosI grew up in a super healthy household. My mom AND dad (hurray equal division of labor!) both worked, and both took turns cooking. We had no sweets, no junk food, healthy lunches... We were different than most of our friends at school and kids in our neighborhood. When I wa about six, having battled with a craving all day, I hiked to the top of the street where I KNEW our neighbors had Twinkies. We didn't know them well, so I politely rang the doorbell and requested a Twinkie. The woman who answered the door gave me one, and I STILL remember the sweet glory of eating it as I walked home. It wasn't so sweet when I got home; the neighbor had called my mother, and my mother was Not Pleased.
54
3/1/2012 17:23:27JenniWhenever my husband thinks I need lift he stashes a bag of donettes is the fridge. I love them when they are cold and the chocolate is crunchy. I also have many childhood memories of the cupcakes in my lunch. I always, to this day, peel off the frosting, eat the cake first and then the frosting last.
55
3/1/2012 17:53:03cgMy favorite memory of a Hostess treat is eating a Ho Ho by unraveling it. I would unravel one round, break if off, then eat the icing, then lick the filling, and then chomp on the cake part. Then I'd unravel another round and keep going. Mmmm, tasty.Are the apple pies Hostess too? 'Cause those were yummy as well.
56
3/1/2012 18:44:50LauraMy brother and I used to have contests to see who could unroll their HoHo into the longest piece without breaking! We did this every time we ate those things, but haven't had one in many, many years.
57
3/1/2012 18:52:56oklaurakAs a kid, my mom never bought me twinkies and I always envied the kids who had Twinkies in their lunches. Sometimes one of my friends would share with me, but I never had my own package. When I was about 12, I had some birthday money and I went to the grocery store and bought 5 Twinkie packages from the 7-11. I went home and hid them in my room so my mom wouldn't find out and then--I went a got a glass of milk and I hid in my room and ate 3 of the packs all at one whack. THEN the last 2 I took for the next 2 days in my lunch-again, hiding them so my mom wouldn't find out. This reminds me that I don't think my children have ever eaten a Twinkie. I think I need to remedy that situation...
58
3/1/2012 19:07:29desiMy husband had misplaced the engagement ring he planned to propose with. All that was in reach that night was a donette. He put it on my finger & asked me to marry him! We both smile everytime we see one...then eat it.
59
3/1/2012 19:10:23SarahI remember having DingDongs in my school lunches! It was such an incredible treat to take off the wrapper and bite into them! It was a happy spot in the middle of the day!
60
3/1/2012 19:58:51lilly ding dongs, hands down, i mean eating them without hands...yum-o
61
3/1/2012 20:08:30MaryJust the seeing the names Twinkie, HoHos, and DingDong takes me right back to the 60's. We didnt' get them often-5 kids and a tight budget. But when we did I'd savour each bite.

They were usually a surprise in my lunch box. I am flooded with memories now; deciding if I should lick out the centers or just bite down; shaking my thermos to see if it was still intact; wondering if I could talk my little sister out of some of hers. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

62
3/1/2012 20:23:44Emily HI remember loving Hostess Cupcakes so much that I would even scrape the remnants off of the white square it is packaged on. Yummmm!
63
3/1/2012 20:33:55KimieDSuch a childhood memory- there's nothing quite as tastey and fun as getting that powdered sugar everywhere!Love the blog!
64
3/1/2012 20:43:24Wendy Back in 5th and 6th grade my best friend and I would sneak over to the supermarket to waste our allowance on boxes of twinkies and magazines. We would then go sit out on the boat docks and make ourselves sick eating those yummy treats, and reluctantly feeding the ducks with a twinkie or two. I wish that I still had the metabolism to eat a whole box of them!!
65
3/1/2012 21:50:22SharronWe are in China right now adopting our sweet little girl. Hostess Donettes travelled all the way to China with us in our luggage! They were rather crushed when we all arrived but we are eating them anyway! Nothing like a little taste of home on the other side of the world!
66
3/2/2012 3:52:38BeckyRemember when they briefly changed the Ding Ding name to King Don's? Oh my, my family chuckled for a long time on that. We loved Ding Dong's growing up & eating the outside first.
67
3/2/2012 3:59:27Terri HamiltonLove the hostess cupcakes and twinkles. Favorite treat when I was a kid.
68
3/2/2012 4:28:25MaraThere was a Hostess store a few blocks away from my house when I was a child. My friends and I would get our allowance for the week and walk down to the store & pick something out. So whenever I see any Hostess product, it brings back lots of memories of childhood.
69
3/2/2012 5:34:52WENDYmy friends and i used, (and I stress used) to crave hohos when ever we had a few too many cocktails. It used to be our mission to find them and usually scarf them down before we even paid for them! I was very young then and could do that kind of stuff!!!
70
3/2/2012 6:23:15estherThe first time I let my son have donettes (the powdered sugar) , he was less than 2 years old and now begs for them all the time. :)
71
3/2/2012 6:25:50LaurelI love SuzyQ's. As a little girl, I remember walking with my sitter to a local gas station and I could always get a treat. That would be it. I would also get them for special trips like to our cabin or to girls' camp. As an adult, I rarely get them, but when I am feeling a little reminisent, that is where I go...to the tried and true SuzyQ. They are harder to find now, but the middle cream is worth the look.
72
3/2/2012 7:05:31Kelly DelrossoI remember sharing Twinkies with my best friend when we were little. She always had these snacks in her house, so I made my mom start buying them for me!

3/2/2012 7:44:18Laura LaLuzerneWe used to take twinkies in high school and put shaving cream in them to play practical jokes. Kids love chocolate covered donuts. I love the HoHo's!
76
3/2/2012 8:30:58Amy I have always LOVED Hostess SNOBALLs! They were always an extra-special lunchbox and afterschool treat when I was a kid, and to this day, biting in a SNOBALL takes me back to 2nd grade.
77
3/2/2012 8:57:25TeriMmmm... When I was in elementary school, we all used to try to trade for the Ding-Dongs that a few kids got in their lunches. I remember being willing to trade in most of my lunch for a single Ding-Dong!

3/2/2012 9:38:55MommaP8My Gramma loves Twinkies. I mean...loves them! So she always has a box in the freezer, hidden from us. She allows herself one Twinkie package a day and prefers them frozen. I know where her stash is (a perk of becoming an older grandkid) now and it's never empty.

83
3/2/2012 11:47:10LoraMy dad used to take one of his daughters along with him on our weekly grocery shopping trip, allowing us to pick out a treat from the Hostess display. We had to keep it a secret. I thought I was the "favorite" daughter and the only one allowed to scarf down my favorite treat (the Hostess cherry pie) on the grocery trip, but I found out when we were adults that my little sister also got to enjoy her favorite treat too (powdered Donettes). I always think of my dad when I see the Hostess display in the stores!
84
3/2/2012 11:54:08WynnWhen I was pregnant and had morning sickness (all day, everyday) the first few moths, the only thing that always sounded good was Donettes (original)! I still love them.
85
3/2/2012 12:20:49Crystal Oh When I was 3 my parents divorced and my twin sister & I lived with our mom...I'm getting to the happy part LOL! So when we would visit our dad he would pretty much spoil us and give us anything we wanted. Without fail every time we would he would have the BIG bag of Hostess powdered donuts for us and let us devour the whole bag! Thanks for the chance to win!
86
3/2/2012 12:46:28PaWhen I was in high school in our small town back in the late 1950's, we had a morning break of about 20 minutes right before agriculture and shop class each morning. There were candy machines and drink machines for refreshments (bottled drinks were 5 cents each and we really were upset when they went up to 6 cents each).

The bread truck would sometimes deliver to the cafeteria while we were on break waiting for shop class. We would purchase fresh-off-the-truck Twinkies, SnoBalls, and DingDongs some days from the truck (some boys bought two items). Those were the best and freshest Hostess treats I ever ate. They never interfered with our lunch two hours later because we were teenage boys! I can still just taste that fresh sweet goodness!

3/2/2012 14:59:10Kathy LWhen I was younger (and apparently had wayyyy more time on my hands and a bit of OCD), I ate Ho Hos by very carefully chewing off all the hard chocolate coating, then attempting to completely roll out the cake and frosting into a flat sheet. It was almost a competition to see if I could do it without tearing the cake. I think about trying that now when I open a Ho Ho, but I've gotten lazier and give in to those chocolate cravings quicker. :)

3/2/2012 16:34:43SusanMade scary eyeballs with the powdered sugar Donettes for my daughter's class last Halloween. What a hit!! The kids were practically fighting over them. Haven't tried the Devil's Food Donettes or the Chocolate filled Twinkies but I think a trip to the store for some is in my VERY near future.

3/2/2012 18:09:25SuzyMy family moved from Texas to Arkansas, and I wasn't too happy about it. In an effort to make the best of what I deemed a bad situation, I tried to make friends. I invited someone from school over after school, and I went ALL out to impress. I asked my father to pick us up in his yellow antique convertible so she'd have the pleasure of NOT riding the bus. I cleaned my room. I bought Twinkies for an after school snack. Things were probably doomed from the start (she wasn't keen on riding with the top down), but I knew we'd never be close friends when she turned her nose up at the Twinkies.

3/2/2012 19:39:56KimWhen I was little around 5 yrs old, my dad taught professional roller skating. Every Saturday morning he had to go off to the skating rink to teach. I remember each morning he would stop at the gas station and get me a pack of the mini donuts and a choc milk to go with. It was something very special him and I did together!!!!! Everytime I eat one of those donuts now at 33 yrs old I remember that feeling as a little girl, sitting at that tiny table at the skating rink with my daddy eating our donuts and sipping our choc milk!! :)I would love to win this gift card, my three boys LOVE the hostess donuts and ding dongs!!! I love making memories with my kiddos!!

3/3/2012 1:04:21Amy TongI remember I always enjoyed a Hostess Ho Hos after school with brothers. We would enjoy this yummy snack together, share (or fight over) toys and always have fun after school. I’m so glad to have this same memory shared with my brothers. That is my favorite Hostess snack cake memory!
