Hostess Brands - the maker of popular baked goods such as Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread - announced it is shutting down, blaming a strike by bakers opposed to a new contract.
As the 82-year-old company begins the liquidation process, analysts say that some of its most iconic brand names will likely live on, getting scooped up at auction and attached to products from other companies.

Ho-Ho's, Ding Dongs or Cup Cakes (You have to inject the filling)
What. No Twinkie Recipes?
Actually there is a clone recipe for twinkies that I use all the time! You can make them small or what I love to do is double the recipe and use a stuffed cake pan! http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/Hostess-Twinkie-Recipe.html
It's so popular amongst my friends that it's one of the most requested things for me and my fiance to bring for b-days and gatherings. I actually like it better than the real thing.
Yodels are where it was at.
Yodel's and Devil Dogs are from Drakes not Hostess....
Hostess owned Drakes
your recipe to dis ease and miserable life.
Oh, pooh. Live a little.
I can't help but notice that there is no recipe for the most important one of them all. Twinkies.
Google "Brown Eyed Baker twinkies." She's got a recipe.
IT'S A TRAP!
Thank you General Akbar...
LOL, thanks, I needed a good laugh today.
Devil Dogs are not a Hostess product.
Hostess owns Drakes. Guess you didn't grow up in America. Ring Dings, Yodels, Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles, Sunny Doodles, Funny Bones, and coffee cake all produced under Hostess Brands.
I am from America and I have never heard of ANY of these. ("Ring Dings, Yodels, Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles, Sunny Doodles, Funny Bones, and coffee cake all produced under Hostess Brands.") I saw the picture of the Devil Dogs and here in the south those are called Suzie Q's.
"Oh, Suzie Q...":
Hmmm...Devil Dogs do not equate to Suzie Qs in my book. The taste is different. I liked Devil Dogs much better.
Sometimes companies make the same things and just name them different things in different regions. So some of these might be familiar to you but have another name. Some might only be made in certain areas.
Don't be mean! That wasn't 'common knowledge' until this sale and if you DID know it prior to the sale, then you are a fat nerd.
Or you always loved Drakes and were upset when Hostess bought them, so you knew all along. I think that was the case for most people who liked Drakes.
The only thing on this page I would eat is the bread. Fresh bread cannot be beat.
'wonder bread' isn't real bread... now a recipe for HomePride would be a different story!
HA! While Homepride was a good bread, it is a Hostess brand too. I didn't know that until my favorite grocery store put a sign up on the empty self explaining Hostess products were no longer available.
We used to get old bread to feed our livestock. Afterone month in a box in the rain, no mold, looked the same as ever. Very Creepy. What is in that bread?
Gonna be doing a lot of cutting and pasting when I get home to save these recipes. Thanks guys!
why not just eat healthy
I agree, this stuff is no good for you anyway. Why eat it?
As I recall Dr. Dean Edell saying on his radio show once: "there are no unhealthy foods, only unhealthy diets". Having an occasional faux Hostess cupcake isn't going to hurt the average person. Having a couple a day and washing it down with a liter of soda is where you get your problems.
moderation is a better part of valor.
why not mind your own business?
^ a little on the fluffy side
How very nasty of you ....... it must be your diet. LOL
that's a good idea
It's ok to treat yourself. I'm all for healthy living, but not treating yourself ever isn't the way I'd like to live.
Hostes recipies, don't know if you saw this.
