So long Ho Ho

Posted on: November 17, 2012

This week’s announcement that Hostess Brands is filing for bankruptcy is filling me with mixed emotions.
Ho Hos, Twinkies, Dolly Madison, Drake’s and Eddy’s are basically junk food. I found it funny that a 1970 era commercial for Ho Hos emphasized that they were fortified with vitamins and iron. Maybe that’s why my mom stuck them in my school lunchbox back in the 70s.

Today we are smarter consumers. A diet with Twinkies and Ho Hos would do nothing but add a spare tire to our waist. Even though saying farewell to the nostalgic snack giant, founded in 1930, is better for our health, it is sad to see 18,500 jobs being lost.
