Hostess Pudding Pies

I was thinking about what foods I would like for lunch today and like most nostalgic people, my mind turned to foods that I cannot find anymore. I wanted a Hostess Pudding Pie – A delicious vanilla with chocolate crust would really hit the spot right now. Since that is not going to happen (all I have been able to find is the chocolate ones), I needed to satisfy my craving with some online reading about them. First to set the nostalgic stage, this wonderful wrapper scan from the 1980s that was posted by Waffle Whiffer.

and of course, one of the commercials for this great product:

Were you or are you a fan of the Hostess Pudding Pie? Are you satisfied with the chocolate or do you miss the days of variety? The TMNT ones are of course a whole other ball of wax.

    I am from new orleans and we have a thing called hubig pies that are pretty much a hostess pudding pie minus the chocolate crust. they have a website and I think they deliver, (I couldnt tell you because when I want them i can get them at walmart, walgreens, etc). But they have a variety of fillings such as vanilla, lemon, chocolate, sweet potato and so forth.

    I was never a big fan of the Hostess pies. I think they were always a little too sweet for my taste.

    I completely forgot about the pudding pies. Great to see that ad. I recognize the girl from the movie “3’o Clock High” and the identity of the boy is pretty obvious.
