Hostess Raspberry Filled Donuts - help!

I am looking for a small supply of these donuts - Hostess Raspberry Filled Donuts to be exact. I use to be able to buy them here in the Northeast many years ago but I haven't been able to find them locally for over 7 years now. They are a powdered covered donut with a small amount of raspberry jelly filled into the ring of the donut. I called a local Hostess distributor and they told me that they are not available in the northeast anymore. A few years ago I met someone in the midwest that was nice enough to ship me a couple of boxes but I am unable to contact this person anymore.

Below are a few pictures of what the box looks like and also a shot of these delecible cakes . I am really looking for a box of 6 donuts like in the second picture however I would not pass up the two packs either.

If anyone out there may be able to help me locate a couple of these boxes (and possibly be my little supplier ) I will make it well worth thier while!

    I might add that I am also willing to cross-ship some other snack item that anyone else may be looking for. I see that some people are looking for Drakes items and I have access to Devil Dogs, Yodels, Drakes Cakes, etc.

    Let's make a deal!

    Can no one find these?? Could it be that Hostess stopped making them and they are gone forever?!?!? AAAAAHHHHH!!!! Say it ain't so!

    Bumping this back to the top with fingers and toes crossed!

    I'll look at the local grocery store(s) amongst my travels and see if they're available here... Worse comes to worse Krispy Kreme can probably come to the rescue!

    Hmm well I haven't really looked for them, but I most certianly remember having them in the past. They were pretty good from what I can recall. We had hostess stores here before, but I have no clue what happened to them(or if they even still exist). I'll keep it in mind and see if I can find any.

    I'm in SE, PA btw.

    Hi, I too have been searching for the raspberry filled donuts. Basically they are only sold in a couple of places now. Believe me, I miss them very much. They are all over Utah and in Bueford South carolina. I tried to find a way to email Hostess and see if they would sell me some, but all I find is a twinkie web sight. It's been 8 years now for me and when I go back to Utah next year, I plan on buying the whole state up. I'm willing to take orders for a fee. I'll be going in February. Lynne

    I live around the corner from a Wonder/Hostess thrift store, so I figured it was worth popping by to check on my way home from work. Bingo! I've got a box in my car. Let me know where you want me to send them. It'll be my RamaHanuKwanzMas present to you.

    I'm sure you'll always be open to more, right Geed? If I happen to find boxes and boxes and have no clue what to do with them

    Geed?
    Last call for raspberry Hostess donuts!
    I'm going to open this box up to the wolves in the break room.
    You might call the Wonder Hostess Thrift Shop in Campbell, CA (408-377-6771) and see if they'll mail you some. The gal behind the counter was pleasant enough, so you might get lucky. With the donuts, that is.
    Enjoy!

    I just saw your post, Geed, and will be happy to look about my area for these donuts. For years I've been shipping sorghum syrup to friends at cost (42 quarts one year), and I have friends who ship me Blue Plate mayo, Indian River grapefuit, a cane syrup cooked in the Florida panhandle, and Polish sausage from a Chicago deli.

    If they're to be found here, we'll get them for you anytime, at cost only.

    We understand.

    Hi Greed,

    I too, was on the "hunt" for these donuts, and as luck would have it, I received 2 boxes yesterday in the mail as a Christmas present from my uncle who knew That I was looking for them. I live in Indiana now, and all of my family still live in Calif. (they send me things all the time), especially the things that I can't get here. Anyway, the name of the store in Calif. that sells them is Stater Bros. If you want a telephone # I can get it for you or one of my family members can send you whatever you want anytime. Just let me know. Have a peace filled holiday!

    OK, I'll try to remember to swing by and pick up some more.
    Hell, for $20 I'm sure the girl at the bakery thrift store would do it...

    I don't know exactly where in the NorthEast you are, so I'm not sure what you could get for me.
    Huevos Rancheros from The Friendly Toast?
    A slice from Benny Tudino's (folded into a big manila envelope, of course)?
    Unfortunately, I'm not that partial to TastyKakes, Sky Bars, Wise, Utz or any of that stuff. Maybe maple sugar candy or a decent eggplant parm sandwich...
    Oh, I'll just do it for the karma.

    I must admit after reading this thread that I MUST seek and find these donuts. I have never seen them before, but if they drive people to such lengths to find them, they have to be good!

    I also had been looking for these hostess raspberry filled donuts and finally found them just last week at 7-11 in Brooklyn, NY. Unfortunately, they are selling them in individual packages, but that works for me for now.

    Well, the craving is starting once more. I'd sure like to find these donuts again. I'm begining to think that the powder coating is something more than confectioner sugar...hahaha.

    If anyone can ship me a box of these donuts please email me at: compgeed at snet dot net
