    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    Need a "None of the above" category. Plain old fat-ass redneck food. Disgusting.

    Where is the true winner, Hostess cream filled chocolate cupcake, in all this. All the others don't have a Snowball's chance in hell of winning....

    The only one from that list I've ever eaten was a Snowball, which I really only like for the sake of nostalgia.

    Y'all need to note the correct spelling.

    And I can honestly say, your life is poorer for neven eaten of the industrial manna that is Hostess. They were to Big Agriculture like the cherubim is to the Heavenly Host.

    Plus the stuff was totally archival. A Ho Ho's half life is like more than the Jurassic.

    Ding Dongs are like the chocolate cupcakes, wrapped with chocolate.
    WINNING!

    I do feel deprived but I grew up in a family of bakery owners.
    There was never a shortage of baked goods.

    jdon... ahsposo isn't talking about baked goods.
    Hostess products may have similar characteristics, but they reside in a class all their own. Like maybe Splenda, powdered milk; except Hostess products actually taste good.

    Boy, if I was a few pounds lighter, I would get up off the couch and chase you down for that.

    Those overly sweet fruit pies may be the only thing edible made (past tense) by hostess....and even then, edible is subject to discussion.
