Man, I remember these chocolate pies well. You'd bite into it and chocolate would drip all over the place. Sounds disgusting now, but I liked them a lot at the time. The funny thing was that although this thing was already about 99% sugar, they found a way to cake the outside of it with a clear coating of sugar also. I can imagine the brainstorming session for this product. "Let's see, we've crammed as much sugar into the filling as we can, and still have a liquid consistency. How about we cake even MORE sugar on the outside of it?"

they were Hostess Pudding Pies, coated in frosting, either chocholate or vanilla. Then they came out with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutagen Pies, that were vanilla with an extra thick green vanilla frosting. I would buy all that were available at the local Quick Stop convienience store and eat them till my belly ached. mmmmm I still have all the collectable cards that they called stickers, but they never stuck to anything.

Up until recently I used to buy the chocolate pudding pies at our grocery store or Wal Mart. Now with Hostess being closed I don't think I'll ever have one again. I guess I'll just buy the Little Debbie version of it.

I remember the ads they used to have for Hostess in comic books back in the 70s, where Spider-Man would defeat the Green Goblin, or Batman and Robin would defeat the Joker(depending on whether the ad ran in a Marvel or DC book, respectively) for example, with Hostess fruit pies...

Here are a few more Hostess comic book ads. One for Twinkies with Captain America (from a Krofft Supershow/Gold key dated Sept., 1978). Next, one for Twinkies with Thor (from a Krofft Supershow/Gold Key dated Jan., 1979). Next, one for Fruit Pies with Richie Rich (from Laff A Lympcs/Marvel dated Mar., 1978). Next, one with Josie & the Pussycats (from Archie's TV Laugh Out dated Nov., 1976) for Cupcakes. On a side note, the chocolate fruit pie was fairly good, the just didn't sell well.

In a 1977 issue of "Welcome Back, Kotter" comic book, an ad for several different Hostess Fruit Pies with Batman, who deals with Topsy Turvy, a villain who could turn things upside-down, including a bank. Main story in the comic book has Kotter trying to teach some humility to an arrogant, overbearing physical education teacher who runs gym class like a Marine boot camp.

From DC Comics, a Fruit Pie ad with The Penguin using flying cuckoo clocks to rob banks. Instead of Batman showing up, one of the clocks turns on Penguin, distracting him with Fruit Pies until police nab him. This was in "Welcome Back, Kotter" comics in mid 1977. Main story has Gabe and Julie Kotter, the Sweat Hogs and Woodman assuming different jobs at a summer camp for kids. Several mishaps occur before the campers even arrive.
