I bought a package of these about a month ago for old times. Now they're labeled a "Snack Classic". Tasted exactly as I remembered.

Just today, I saw a package of white Snoballs. Now that's not right. But apparently Snoballs started out this way and they still make them occaisionally.

Just don't get me started on Mallomars!!

Mark - I was on the Hostess site earlier. It said they also used to package a white one and a pink one toghether. That sounds familiar.

Did your family eat the Drakes Cakes, too? Ring Dings, Yodels, Devil Dogs, Yankee Doodles and Coffee Cake JRs. I can picture my dad sitting at the kithen table with a cigarette, a Devil Dog and a cup of tea. It was one of the few chocolate treats he liked. Maybe it was a Bronx thing.

Sure, we had all the Drakes Cakes. I was partial to the Ring Dings and Yodels.

It was my mother with a cigarette, coffee and a chocolate Entenmanns donut but those came later. Earlier it was a marble chiffon cake from the bakery she called "morning cake" or the aforementioned Mallomars.

Lulu I have simply GOT to track those down. They don't sell them in the shops over here (probably something to do with health legislation) but I'm sure I can get them on line.
