Some things I never miss until they are gone. This is how I felt when Hostess went out of business and a piece of Americana disappeared. Hostess desserts were a huge part of my childhood in the 70's, which was the goofiest decade of all making it an amazing experience if you were 12 and under. Although I am far from militant in food choices for my daughter, I have not pushed Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's on her. But when I saw these in Target this weekend I had to pounce. I haven't opened them yet so the verdict is still out if the new owners kept the recipe.
This dress was purchased from Ebay quite a few years ago for about 12 bucks. Although it is pretty the inside looks like a bad sewing job which leads me to wonder if it was altered in some way. It could have at one time had long sleeves and it may have even been a long maxi dress at one point. The polyester is the typical early 70's shiny stiff material that got a bad rap later on but this does not detract from its charm.
