The Adventures of Happy Ho Ho

This Hostess gem from the Waffle Whiffer might be the very first appearance of Happy Ho Ho, the Ho Ho mascot. I loved when foods have little comics on them. I would read them all at the store and if I ever persuaded my Mom to buy one, I would read it every time I got to have that food. Happy Ho Ho got his start in 1970 and never in the history of food has their been a happier dancing chocolate cake.

    Ah, the good ol’ days, when hostess treats were wrapped in foil instead of plastic.

    btw, Does anyone else think the top/left pic of “happy ho ho” looks like “hanky the xmas poo”?
