Yeah you can get me a law degree from UM, I've always wanted one of those :)  I want to make sure about one thing, these are "berry", not boysenberry.  Is that the same?  The Hostess site only lists berry, so I'm assuming here.  Yeah, they are in all the major grocery chains here.  If they're out of any flavor, its usually chocolate.  I'll let you know if the postage is huge before sending.  Otherwise, don't worry about it.

    I thought they were called "blackberry" officially...maybe it's berry tho.  I have  never heard of boysenberry--it exists?

    thanks

        Had my first Hostess Blackberry Pie (thank you Bill!) and it is absolutely delicious. The filling is absolutely top notch, and there is a lot of it. Doesn't taste artificial, or overly sweet--just a great snack pie. It is a crime these aren't sold all over.

              Apple, cherry, lemon, blackberry, pineapple, strawberry, French apple.

              I seldom see anything but the first 4 types.

                I have never seen pineapple or French Apple--EVER. Never saw blackberry until 2 days ago.  There is also Chocolate Pudding and Peach which their site doesn't mention---which is very common, at least in my neck of the woods.

                  I've had them all except the pineapple. I saw a wrapper for one once on the internet, but thats as far as I got.

                  The French Apple came in a red and blue wrapper and it was one of their normal apple pies with raisins added.
                   
                  I remember eating the teenage mutuant ninja pies too when they were available years ago. Pudding pie with green frosting.

                    Anyone know what part of the country have pineapple and french apple? I have never seen either.

                    I too remember the ninja turtle pies--they have quite a cult following. I wish they did some more promotional flavors like that. I also remember the chocolate pies with vanilla pudding in the mid 80s. they weren't out long--but were awesome.

                    Blackberry HAS to be my new fave with Cherry/Chocolate pudding not far behind. Peach is up there is as well. Apple seems to have been changed up over the past year or so--at least with my local bakery--a TON of cinnamon.  Lemon is good but I only get a hankering every once in awhile. Still devastated blueberry is discontinued. And strawberry is hit and miss.  Seems like if you get a VERY fresh one it is pretty good--but the filling doesn't hold up as much as the others.

                      hey, what did you think of the all-american pies?
                      To me,  they seem more fruity and less sugary.

                        Wonder how far east the All-American Pies get:

                          I liked the all american pies actually. Though I like the Hostess filling much more. Thanks again! You get my PM?

                          As far as how East they go. I do know the Cutie Pie line from Horizon (same pie but smaller) is pretty common and all the Wall Marts around here carry boxes of them in various flavors. Not bad, and inexpensive.

                            Hard to find any other flavors here in Alaska other than Apple, Lemon, Cherry, and Chocolate. I have a Hostess thrift store next to the restaurant and still have not found any of the more esoteric flavors here.

                              funny david, I talked to the lady at our local hostess thrift,
                              And she reported everyone complaining they could get chocolate in
                              California but not here. :)
                              Exotic is whatever one can't get, I guess. No French Apple or Pineapple here ever, according to her.

                                  Yes, I have a Hostess outlet right down the street from me--I try to limit my visits. Generally, they have a combination of 5 pies, twinkies, zingers, cupcakes, etc. for $3.80, I think--not bad. They are generally closer to the expiration date than what you would find at the store---though. Not always, sometimes they are just what the driver had left over after restocking all the stores shelves and you still get very fresh ones. Besides, the only ones I have found that the sell by date really effects it is the cinnamon struesel cakes--which get really dry.

                                        alright, Kevin & Todd. Success is here. There was a period here where they were all closed dated; the clerk said these must be a new production run. Don't know whether they had to ramp up for green and purple snowballs or what, but expect your party paks soon.
                                        Sorry for the delay, but I thought you guys would appreciate the difference.

                                          A big Huzah! for Bill! Much appreciation sir! No need to apologize for the delay

                                          The outlet by me has been running a special .59 for the pies (limit 10).  I stopped in there the other day and they only had 3 left (all Peach). I bought them. And the dates are all the end of the month, not bad.

                                                Thats great news Bill and thanks for going out of your way. Hopefully, I can return the favor someday.


                                                It wasn't going out of the way, as much as waiting for the right moment to pounce. I had the clerk snag em for me, as I think I took a whole week's allocation.  I left the shelves empty. :)

                                                  Still the effort is VERY much appreciated.

                                                      Hmm, strange that i stopped up at Sheetz today coming into work and they had plenty of Chocolate pies. The vending machine at work is filled with them too (Pittsburgh PA by the way). Oh well.

                                                        Many, many thanks go out ot Bill Voss. Recieved a package in the mail yesterday before going to work. I opened it up and was shocked to see that I recieved much more than I had asked for. Bill threw in a couple of bags of Kettle chips (sweet onion and buffalo bleu,,,cant wait to try them) and some regional candies that i've never heard of. I just ate the Peanut butter Mountain and it was good. The Hostess Blackberry pie was just as I remembered from 20 years ago. Awesome.

                                                        I'm going to try to have a Berry pie comparison this weekend to report back on. My son and daughter and I will be the tasters. I'll have the Hostess, All American, Dolly Madison, and a JJ's that i've found at the dollar market to test. Should be a good time.

                                                        Anyways, thanks again Bill and I feel I owe you now. You've gone well above what was asked for and if you ever want something from over here on the east coast, you wont have to do anything more than just ask.

                                                          Can't wait for mine! WHOOT!

                                                          I actually had a JJ's berry pie yesterday---very good. But quite different from Hostess.  Dolly Madison pies? Those still exist? Do you mean Little Debbie Blackberry pie?  Anyway enjoy the taste test!


                                                          For my money the berry pies would rank as follows:

                                                          1. Hostess
                                                          2. All American (wish we had the brand here)
                                                          3. JJs
                                                          4. Little Debbie (tho Little Debbie and JJs seem like the exact same pies)

                                                          Same here, Bill. Though I think most of what Michigan is known for--Better Maid chips, Vernors, Faygo, etc. is available elsewhere.
