Hostess Donettes


My friend Sue brought me a gift last Friday when she stopped in for a quick visit and lunch.  Always clever in her shopping, she grabbed up several sacks when she saw a display in Walmart for $2.  Here is what they are going for now on Amazon, just in time for Christmas.

Donette food valueWe won’t be missing these on a diet.  Six of those little things are 360 calories and a 22 g. fat!! 

Interestingly enough, on the back of the sack proudly displayed is the insignia of the Baker’s Union—the organization that ultimately brought them down.  However, from what I hear, the company was headed into bankruptcy anyway.

Still, a sad closing to an iconic brand.
