A Fond Farewell

Quilts aren’t the only thing that turn on the gals at McCall’s Quilting

Twinkie A Fond FarewellUpon learning of the iconic Hostess bakery going out of business, a couple McCall’s staff members rushed to the closest grocer to bring back what remained of some Hostess classics – Ho Hos, CupCakes, Suzy Q’s and Twinkies! A group-email was promptly sent, and within moments all the McCall’s girls swarmed the cube for an impromptu binge! (Okay, more like 1 thoughtfully selected favorite – LOL.)

What favorite will you most miss? For me, it will be a tie between the classic Twinkie and the pink Sno Balls.

    Hostess Cupcakes are my favorites and I can’t believe they are going away.

    So sad and so many people lost their jobs because of their union shutting down Hostess. No more of these tasty treats! Maybe we will be lucky and some other bakery company will start making them. Hostess cupcakes have been a favorite of mine for more than five decades since I was a little kid. Wow, they won’t be at the grocery the next time I shop. However will we manage?

    Twinkies. Absolutely Twinkies. :-(
    Am I hearing that they are not really gone? :-)

    Hostess still exists in Canada. They’ll probably export their sweets
    to USA.
