Hostess Cupcakes

March 13, 2009   1 Comment

The Hostess website claims that there is a person in Florida who eats 4 Hostess cupcakes a day. So, at 680 calories, I hope she is replacing a meal with them (cupcakes for breakfast anyone?). If she isn't, she is probably one very large Floridian.

These cupcakes taste really fake to me. This might be because I have a husband who makes great cupcakes. Men, take note, baking is a very sexy thing to do. Do not underestimate the power of smelling like frosting.

I found someone who actually makes these cupcakes from scratch. Here is her link:

When I saw all that it takes to make these cupcakes, I decided to just stick to my husband's cupcakes. Just like Twinkies, these cupcakes are drained of any nutrition to allow them to stay fresh for a REALLY long time. I prefer my cupcakes with real butter, sugar, and eggs. Check out my homemade cupcake recipe and eat those instead!

I love Hostess cupcakes (chocolate ones, of course). But! Knowing they are junk food with no value,I seldom do I eat one.
