Classic Hostess Ding Dongs Ad

Here is another classic ad from the Waffle Wiffer. This one looks to be the introductory ad for Hostess Ding Dongs, one of my favorite treats as a kid. I loved the combo of chocolate and cream almost as much as I loved Twinkies and boy did I love Twinkies. Notice in this ad, the Ding Dong is still wrapped in foil. I miss those days of un-pealing them. It is odd how old packaging can even trigger nostalgia.

    There was nothing better than opening up your Korg 70,000 B.C. lunchbox in the cafeteria and finding that shiny foil wrapped Hostess Ding Dong!
