A few weeks back I was doing my normal round of blog reading and caught this post about DC related Hostess treats over at Speed Force. I was amused and not just because the Green Lantern cupcakes were called, “Glo-Balls.” Really, Hostess? That’s the best you could come up with? Aside from suddenly acting like a fourteen year old I thought it was kind of cool that DC’s 75th Anniversary celebration was so far reaching that they even reached the snack cake world. I was at Wal-Mart the other night buying some groceries and saw the Flash and Green Lantern related cakes as well as Batman’s cup cake box. I was literally starting to say, “Where are the Superman related snack treats?” when I saw these.
Sometimes it all comes together.
I shouldn’t be this excited over a box of Twinkies but I thought this was really cool. Not cool enough to buy multiple boxes because I really don’t need to eat that many Twinkies and there is something really gross about keeping a box of snack treats for decades but word on the street the Twinkies would still be good years down the road so there you go. Still, one box is enough, at least for me. I’ll probably hang on to the packaging after I am done with the Twinkies in about a week or so.
Superman Twinkies! What a way to kick off my stay-cation!
Tomorrow: YouTube Tuesday!
