I'm afraid I won't miss them at all - I haven't eaten any of these treats since high school....

 
What happened? Did you grow up? If so, I'm sorry.

          Check the best by/sell by date. Drake's is not long enough to still be considered fresh. The last exp. date I saw for Drake's coffee cakes was 11/28.

              The Convenience store always has Tastykake @ 2/$6 and I always buy a box of Cream-filled Coffee Cakes. The last time I tried the new Kandy Kakes (York)...

              http://www.cspnet.com/new...launch-kandy-bar-kakes

              They were so go...I can't buy them again.

                Ding Dongs and Ho Hos
                 
                I tried some Little Debby Swiss Rolls a few weeks ago, they were better than they were when I tried them the first time years ago, but still not as good as Ho Hos. Too sweet or something.

                  Raspberry Pies, when you could find them. Irresistible.

                        I'll miss the two pack of chocalte cupcakes the most.
                         
                        I'm kind of sad I'll never again be able to eat a frozen twinkie. Unless I find one way in the back of my freezer.
                         
                        One thing's for sure, if they take Little Debbie away I don't wanna live on this planet anymore.

                            Though it was only a temporary specialty from several years ago; the Apple Cupcakes.
                             
                            The Angel Cakes, which were seasonal and from even longer ago, also were unique.
                             
                            The old Twinkie taste (the sweeter creme). Chocodiles. The orange cupcakes too. Suzy-Q's
                             
                            Then, of course, the basic Drake's line: Devil Dogs, Yankee and Sunny Doodles, Ring Dings, Yodels, the unique, kosher mini-pies, and from years ago, the swiss rolls, and from even further back, the strawberry and banana Shortcakes (the fake Twinkies, basically). Lemon cookies
                             
                            Dolly Madison
                            Yellow Zingers
                            Banana ["flip"] Dream (inherited from Mickey)
                             
                            Here in NYC, Joey's (from NJ) and Mrs Freshley's (Flowers 3d party distribution label) have taken over the Hostess/Drake's racks
                            Recent news has the earlier named two most likely pursuers; Flowers and Bimbo, still looking into buying. Hope they resurrect all the cake brands/products.

                              It is nice to see a variety of snack & bread products that could never ever get shelf-space (going against a corporate giant) finally become available.

                                Ho Ho's probably would be mine but Tasty Kakes Kandy Kake Snacks are the shiznit in my opinion!
