Did You Know?
Hostess has been around for years producing iconic American snack cakes like the Twinkie, Ding Dong and Ho Ho. In fact, they've been doing it since 1919!
Back then the Hostess CupCake made its debut.
It wasn't until 1930 that the Twinkie made its appearance though. Invented by bakery manager Jimmy Dewar, they were sold in pairs for just a nickel!
Today half a BILLION Twinkies are made by Hostess Brands Inc - a true snack cake success story!INGREDIENTS:
