A Farewell DingDong
Hostess Brands -
(the one upon which Madison Ave.
lusciously poured liquid butter);
Though it is the child within me who
most fondly recalls your
or the most awesome-of-all
which my mom never forget
to put in my lunchbox.
(NB: Hostess Cakes were NEVER as good as Tasty Baking's various offerings, though DingDongs (RingDings) came close...)
(NBB: Sno-Balls were just plain alien: pink rubbery glutinous coconut-studded shell around a VW-Beetle-shaped cake filling with bland white creme inside. They were generally avoided, and traded at big discounts in the secondary school lunch-room market )
(NBBB: RingDings and DingDongs were best when frozen and eaten straight out of the freezer; RingDings were to be avoided in summer lunch boxes at all costs as their chocolate shells were prone to melting, making it impossible to remove the aluminium-foil wrapper)
