I haven't been able to find a Hostess blueberry pie in AGES, not even when I went to the Hostess store next to one of their factories and ASKED for one.

So screw them. :twisted:

Tastykake still makes blueberry pies. They make peach pies. They make pumpkin pies. Shit, they even make eggnog pies.

Just move to or visit the NY/NJ/PA area.

Actually, I do live in that area, and I do enjoy Tastykake blueberry pies.
But Hostess pies have that glaze coating I love. :-(

Actually the union itself is positioned better than anyone to buy the brand, they were partners in the business.

So no on the el Twinko's....

Drake's Cakes is also gone because of this because Hostess bought them some years ago.

That's a HUGE part of my childhood. Whenever my family spent our summers on NY we always came back with two extra boxes filled with various Drake's cakes and Entemann's donuts because they used to only be available on the East Coast.

Now I'll be back in NY on Thurs and I'll have to get family to buy as much Drake's as they can and bring it back.

I'm sure Twinkies will return, but Ring Dings, Yodels, and Funny Bones?

May never see their like again.

Dolly Madison brand goes too. Gems and cupcakes are a staple of my traveling diet. I didn't even think of it until hubby mentioned Zingers were made by someone else. Never could find the yellow ones.

We went to the corner market and picked up a few items. All the Hostess stuff was gone but I think no one else though of the other brands that were owned by Hostess(goodbye Wonder Bread). After snacking I remembered why I only buy that stuff on the rarest of occasions. :ick:

They did do one of those "get only $1 a year" things earlier, but still something is fishy...
