I'm sure you all know by now that Hostess is no more. They have closed up shop and are declaring bankruptcy. I honestly never thought I would live to see this day. Like many of you I grew up on Hostess baked goods! My favorites were the Ding Dongs and the Ho-Ho's. As of today I can't seem to find them. The sections of the stores were the Hostess goods were located are empty. It's really kind of sad, and I can't help but think that Hostess is like "Oh I see, now that we've shut down you all finally come out and buy our product." I guess it's just one of those things we took for granted. But dammit, this is America, and Hostess is an American product! It wasn't supposed to go out of business! Hostess was suppose to live on, what kind of childhood will kids have without Hostess awesomeness!? At least I can proudly say that I've always made sure there was Hostess goodness in our cupboards.
Some of you may or may not know that Hostess has teamed up with comic book properties from both Marvel and DC over the years to promote their products. That's right friends, superheroes were selling Twinkies, Cup Cakes, Pies and more! As a little tribute to Hostess, I thought I would post a collection of fun 70's Hostess and superhero comic strip ads featuring Captain America, Batman, Thor, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hulk, and more in some kind of crazy Hostess adventure.
Enjoy the comic strips and let us know what your favorite Hostess treat was!
