In case you haven’t visited S&R lately, you might want to know that there’s an ongoing promo where you can buy 5 boxes of Hostess products for only P999.95!
That means each box is only P200! You can also choose any combination you want
This promo saves you P500, because the regular price for these babies is P299.95 per box.
We got Twinkies (2 boxes), Banana Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Chocolate-Covered Twinkies. We just wanted to try them all! Haha! There is also a Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake, but we chose to get more Twinkies instead!
I already wrote about Twinkies before, so I’ll just concentrate on the other Hostess cakes.
Here’s what they look like out of the box. I opened some to show you:
Chocolate-Covered Twinkies – there are 9 in the box we but already ate some
It looks exactly like a regular Twinkie! It tastes like banana bread, and although you can definitely smell the banana as soon as you open one, it is not very strong nor overpowering. I think the cake and the marshmallow filling are both flavored with banana.
The way to tell the Banana Twinkies and the Regular Twinkies apart is the bar at the back. The Banana has a blue bar, the Regular Twinkie has a white bar:
I like these! These are regular Twinkies covered in a thin layer of chocolate. It’s a very good combination.
Chocolate overload! I give up! This is too sweet for me However, some people just absolutely adore Ding Dongs. Did you watch the TV show The Closer? If you love murder-solving shows and how the interrogator gets into the criminals’ heads and manipulates them into confessing, you’ll probably love The Closer. Kyra Sedgwick’s character is famous for her bag, AND is also famous for her addiction to Ding Dongs.
My favorite of them all! I know we didn’t have Twinkies in the Philippines back in the day, but damn if it doesn’t taste just like childhood! It’s a sweet, bouncy, slightly oily baked cake filled with marshmallow cream! It’s just one of those “guilty pleasure” things.
It is quite sweet, so I paired it with black coffee (no sugar needed because the Twinkie is so sweet!).
Loot Bag Idea
These cakes keep for several months (check the Best Before date) and will be great for snacks, baon, dessert, and to have something on hand to serve guests you invite over for the holidays. You can even make a loot bag of the different cakes to give out to guests before they go home!
This promo is ongoing at S&R until the end of December 2015 🙂
