Round chocolate sponge cakes covered in a chocolate coating with white cream filling. We would keep these in the fridge. I used to eat away the chocolate coating first.

I remember that over the coarse of about a year in the 70's that the name changed from Hostess Ding Dongs, to King Dongs, to King Dons.

Hostess (Continental Baking) introduced Ding Dongs in 1970. Animated TV commercials featuring King Ding Dong were made, part of the series which included Fruit Pie the Magician, Captain Cupcake and Twinkie the Kid. Unlike Continental's Dolly Madison line of products (featuring Charlie Brown/Peanuts, advertised on network TV), the Hostess line's advertising was limited to local or syndicated TV shows in the 1970s.
