Not even Aquaman and Mera can save those tasty treats. :(

Hostess Apple Fruit Pie, i will miss you. So will the Manta Men and Mera's astronauts.

I don't remember that top one at all, but to this day I still treasure the memory of having men dressed in manta costumes teach me what hands and fingers and mouths were meant for.

And where's the salty seawater tears of nostalgia for Suzy Qs? I think I'll miss them most of all.

Give it a few months... Twinkies and fruit pies will be back (the good ones, not the knock-offs... YUCK!!)... Someone will buy the recipes, if nothing else, so they may be Sara Lee's Hostess Twinkies or something goofy like that, but they shall return!! (Don't buy them for $100 on Ebay!!)

I have always loved those fun old Hostess Ads !! Good Times !! I always did wonder how that guy managed to breath underwater when eating Hostess with Aquaman and Slud - Jak !!
