Like most concerned citizens, I was devestated when Hostess went out of business. But now the individual products are returning, and I have sampled both the Twinkies and the Hostess Cupcakes. At first I was nervous, because I didn’t know if the specific polymers and preservatives involved were still available, and I prayed that no one had tried to “improve” on the originals. I’m happy, no, I’m delerious to report that both items remain perfect. Of course, I’m still waiting for the marshmallow-covered Snowballs. I cherish the Snowballs because the marshmallow is dyed different colors to reflect various holidays; it’s orange for Halloween and green for St. Patrick’s Day. Why not a blue-and-white Snowball for Passover?
