Ding Dongs is one of America’s favorite snacks, but it could be soon disappearing from the supermarket aisle as companies like Hostess plans to go out of business.
In fact, Ding Dongs, Twinkies, SuzyQs, Hostess Cupcakes, and Ho Hos is something food bloggers have been figuring out on how to make in their own kitchen.
Leite’s Culnaria reminds readers that President Clinton “dropped a Twinkie in the millennium time capsule back in 1999.” Her Twinkies, look like the real deal, though, even if they take 1 hour and 15 minutes to make.
On Love & Flour an enterprising foodie figured how to assemble her own Suzy Q’s for her mom’s birthday. Her mom, of course, is named Susan. Cute.
One blogger’s confession on The Family Kitchen might explain why Hostess Brands has gone under: “I don’t buy my children twinkies or hostess cupcakes (poor kids),” writes Jamie. “And last week, we were in the grocery store when they saw the display in the store. When they begged me to buy the ho-ho’s, I said no (I don’t like the artificial ingredients and preservatives), but thought it might be fun to try making them at home…”
It turned out the going was a little tough, though, as Jamie writes, “it’s challenging to roll up the cake without breaking it. I suddenly understood why I hadn’t been seeing blog posts on homemade ho-ho’s popping up all over the internet.”
Over at Krissy’s Creations, this happy wife of a pro ball player has cracked the cuteness code with her homemade Hostess Cupcakes. Hostess Cupcakes are the one thing that I see a lot in bakeries around town.
In A Cozy Kitchen Adrianna really wants you to succeed in making your own homemade Ding Dongs. She walks you through all the steps! Don’t give up, even though she calls it a “weekend project.”
Hostess has been in business for 84 years, but the company announced it will call it quits, leaving thousands of people unemployed. However, even though you can make some of their treats at home, it’s hardly the same thing as you buy in the store. Well, without the preservatives.
