So Long Twinkie the Kid…Thanks for the Memories

I’ve always hated Twinkies.

So I can’t say that I’m sad to see them go, but like most people my age, Hostess Twinkies are a part of my childhood.  Late Friday night, I drove for over an hour in search of spongy goodness.


Hostess Zingers, Hostess Suzy Q's
12 stores later –

I was able to find 1 box of  Zingers and my all-time favorite – Suzy Q’s.

Prior to this, I couldn’t tell you when I last had a Zingers or a Suzy Q.  I’m guessing it’s been at least 15 years.

Well in case you’re wondering, I did not eat either one.

Like a good wifey, I packed the Suzy Q’s in my husband’s lunch and I have no intention on eating a Zingers.  About a month ago I woke up fat, remember?

I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

    I LOVE Zingers! I used to love to eat the chocolate (way back when when I ate chocolate) off of the HoHos. I can’t believe “Hostess” is gone!! WOW.

      When I was younger I used to separate the Suzy Q’s, kinda felt like I had more if I did it that way. LOL 😀 I read today that the cakes and bread recipes will probably be sold to the highest bidder. Long live the king.

    On a happy note, Congrats to you on your willpower! I love the Zingers! And the chocolate cupcakes….and the apple pies! The Zingers though, were always my favorite. Is that a THREE pack I see?
    On a sad note, we had a Hostess plant here in my city. It was devastating to see people lose their jobs right before the holidays.

      Thanks – the Zingers box is open, but I haven’t had any. The cupcakes were always tasty and I like to microwave the fruit pies – sugary goodness. It is very sad to see so many people lose their jobs and right before the holidays makes it absolutely worse. There wasn’t a plant in my city, but 3 in the Chicagoland area over 1400 people out of work. It’s horrible.
