Has any one had a Hostess Ho-Ho lately? Did they change the receipe? (I guess that is two questions, maybe a two parter?)
The other night I was thinking about haveing a Ho-Ho. I don't know why, I just was. (For any of you people who came here from a Google search for a different kind of...um..thing, move a long. we are talking snack cakes here). When I went to the grocery store the next day I bough some of the fabulous rolled snack cakes with creme filling. I was very excited to go home and have one.
At first Jenn was mad at me for buying them. I know I shouldn't bring those kind of treats in the house since neither of us have much willpower when it comes to snacks. She grabbed one while I put the other groceries away and I thought she was going to spit it out. She said it didn't taste good. I didn't believe her. I've never heard of a Ho-Ho tasting anything but spectacular.
So, I opened one for me and took a big bite. It was a plastic-tasting, horribly textured mass of goo. The filling tasted like foam filling you find in some pillows. I was so disappointed. I didn't see anything on the box about a new formula, but I did notice it had zero grams of trans fat. That has to be the problem. Now the box sits in our cabinet sad and lonely. Like the little boy that gets picked last in gym class.
This war against trans fat is slowly ruining my best memories from my childhood.
