While searching for all things Hostess...

Has anyone seen Hostess Raspberry Zingers around? Every time someone asks me "Do you want anything from the States?" it's the first thing I ask for. Nobody can seem to find them -- in fact, one of my friends in NYC was actually laughed at for asking!

Anyone seen these for sale recently, or are these soon to become a faded memory?

    Wow, I visit the Hostess store every week, perhaps twice, and have never seen them. Interesting.

    You have access to these all the time? I'd be the size of a house.

    Cheesybellybutton, it's frustrating trying to get products from across the pond. I know how you feel.

    I've been trying to get the real UK formulation of Lea & Perrins for some time. Finally, an English tea room here (operated by a lady from Britain) is adding it to their gift shop.

    Here's a site that sells the raspberry Zingers, but I think they only ship within the states. Perhaps there's a site that will ship anywhere.

    Hostess bought out Dolly Madison, who used to make them. You might be seeing them in the future.

    Just got a "small" box (6-pack) the other day with the "Dolly Madison" logo. Not bad!

    Speaking of that, why was Geed's long-running raspberry filled donut thread closed?

    Mind you, I am not questioning the judgement of any admin or mod, no biggie, just can't figure out why it would have closed.

    That's what the picture on the box looks like. Just like most everything else though, when you take it out, it's not nearly as big as expected.

    This product replaced "Tiger Tails" which were so much better!
