New Hostess Bake Shop Products Review

Chocolate-Dipped Twinkies With Rainbow Sprinkles Are a Game Changer

When Hostess announced new products including chocolate-dipped Twinkies with rainbow sprinkles, we had exactly one thought: "must try ASAP." And after we tried the chocolate Twinkies plus two other new products, Triple Fudge Ding Dongs and Cupcake Cookies, we can confirm these new pastries are serious game changers. Keep your eyes peeled for the all-new Hostess Bake Shop items in the grocery store, but you won't find them in the cookie aisle. Instead, you'll see them in the bakery section of the store, rightfully placed among other delicious cupcakes and cookies. If you can't decide which of the three items you want to pick up first, here's what you should know about the taste (and sweetness level) of each one.

Decorated Twinkies


The new Decorated Twinkies are coated in a layer of icing-like chocolate, topped with plenty of sprinkles, and drizzled with white icing, too. If a regular Twinkie is enough to give you a sugar rush, just wait until you bite into one of these incredibly sweet treats. Chocolate-lovers will appreciate this fun twist on a classic and won't be able to resist finishing the whole pastry. They might even be better than the original.


Triple Fudge Ding Dongs


Holy chocolate! We didn't think a Hostess product could be too sweet for our liking; some people claim it might have gone overboard on the chocolate. The whole Ding Dong is dipped in fudgy chocolate, and it makes the outer shell much thicker than usual. We're left wanting more cake than chocolate coating, but if there's no such thing as too much chocolate in your world, you won't have any complaints.

Cupcake Cookies


You can't go wrong with Hostess Cupcakes, and these have everything you love about the classic treat, but they're in cookie form. The moist chocolate cookies don't have a cream filling inside, but they have the iconic swirled white icing on top. There's nothing not to love, and you won't be able to stop at just one. Perfectly sweet and just the right amount of chocolaty, the Cupcake Cookies were universally loved by everyone who tried them.
