@Targaryen Yes, I have had it-.
We don’t go there to eat very often because we would like to have an old[er] age, so on the infrequent visits we make, I usually order it and invariably LOVE it!

I spent one entire summer in Boulder CO surviving off the pizza I got while at work and Hostess Raspberry Zingers that I bought at the Hostess closeout store. I had rented a basement room from a lady and had access to the kitchen and rest of the house (and eventually the landlady… but that’s a different story…) but didn’t really feel like cooking anything so lived off Zingers and milk when not at work. Oh, yeah… and the righteous pot that she provided. She was a cougar before that was a thing (mid-1970’s).
Amazingly I was about 150 lbs back then and never did gain any appreciable weight until I got a few more years under my belt. Well, that and getting married did it I think.
@yakkoTDI ymmm… butterscotch! never had those, but these were definitely Dolly Madison/pre Hostess (so technically not eligible for mention in this thread…)
I used to buy bakery goods at the ‘day old’ store all the time in my younger days. Never see any of those stores around here any more. In fact, when the kids were younger I used to tell them we were going to the ‘used bread’ store.
I once heard a comedian attempt a shtick about his parents buying Little Debbie instead of Hostess. That’s roughly the equivalent of complaining that your parents bought you a Mercedes instead of that 1972 Ford Pinto you wanted.
@2many2no Back in around '96 or '97 I took a box of Oatmeal Creme Pies to a SCOTS show and handed them out during “Camel Walk”.
And then those assholes started throwing them on stage, so I didn’t do it again.
I think the audience is old enough now that I could do it again. Last show some woman bought banana pudding in little cups and handed it out in front of the stage, and Mary was handing down bottles of water to people who looked like they needed them.
Same band, and, apparently, same people in the crowd, over twenty years later.
@pitamuffin@Targaryen My Dad loved Ding Dongs and Ho-Hos; he used to have us kids all save our foil wrappers; Mom would wrap them into a ball and we’d see how big a ball of ding dong foil wrappers we could give Dad for Christmas.
Since they were good parents and didn’t get us tons of sweets and treats, it wasn’t very big but it was always fun!
@tinamarie1974 yeah, we have seen them around the central/south america area as well. First time I saw the name was on a sign on the side of a building, which, of course, made me smile. Gotta love a Bimbo!
