These were special snack cakes introduced to celebrate the bicentennial year (1976), The "collection" consisted of yellow vanilla and chocolate rectangular, cream filled snack cakes topped with red & blue candy stars, red zingers (like Twinkies but coated in sticky raspberry and coconut) and round chocolate and vanilla cakes topped with icing stripes and cream-filled. The ad campaign featured the Peanuts gang. Lucy was associated with the zingers.

Dolly Madison ONLY advertised during the much anticipated Charlie Brown Specials! Zingers had so much more cache than Little Debbie's because they seemed so exclusive and of course, who wouldn't want to be reminded of that excited feeling one had while watching cartoons AT NIGHT DURING THE WEEK! Zinger's were supreme when eaten from the freezer! oooh, that creamy icing filling, yum. I don't even eat them now, wouldn't be the same.

I remember these Stars and Stripes cakes. They were better than any other snack cakes I've had since.

I remember these cakes from the Dolly Madison bakery company; and yes, they did had red,white and blue stripes as well as little candy stars on top. I think they came out in 1976 (during our nation's Bicentenial celebration). the slogan for the commerial was: "Dolly Madison. All kinds of cakes..For all kinds of taste."

I don't think they were rectangle, I think they were round and came two in a package.

Too this day, I remember these snack cakes with the extreme fondness. The vanilla cakes were the best of the best. I wish they would bring them back. I've never had better snack cakes before or since. Even my 78 year old mother remembers them as being "fabulous little snackers."

It was great when these cakes were around ; and kids loved them. Each time my dad bought a box of them for us ; we would find different free things (a small bag of seeds with different Peanuts comic characters on front , or a set of Peanuts stickers). We would collect these, and still enjoyed the cakes. ^_^)

I remember them well. Funny how there is a thread for just about everything. I thought the Stars were fantastic, but the Stripes were nothing special. I would agree the Stars were the best snack cakes around and nothing has compared since.
