Remembering Hostess

You’ve all heard the sad news by now: Hostess will be no more. The iconic American baked goods brand, known for such sugary, packaged junk food creations as Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Yodels and Sno Balls has filed for bankruptcy and has stopped all operation at all of its baking facilities after the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union started a nationwide strike that crippled the company.

In remembrance of the Hostess brand, here is a look back at some of their entertaining ads.
