New Co. Is Putting Hostess in the Gutter

I hadn't purchased any Hostess products since the old Hostess company sold out to a new company. I decided to purchase a box of my favorite Twinkies two days ago and was very disappointed. They were extremely small and the cake was not light and fluffy like the old Twinkies they were actually very chewy. I had read that the new company had changed the recipe to make their products have a longer shelf life. Possibly this has something to do with it. Sadly, we probably won't ever see the good old Hostess products that we once knew.

Mildew smell and bad taste

This is the second time I have purchased bread from hostess that has had a mildew smell as well as taste. I am disappointed that you guys don't care more about the quality of your products or your customer satisfaction. To simplify this...Think of How you would feel if you spent $4 on a load of bread that smells and taste so bad that your stomach turns? Well that is how your customers feel. I have skimmed through the reviews and saw this exact same complaint from others who have made the mistake of purchasing your product and if you guys haven't worked to fix this by now I think it's apparent... you don't give a flying flute who gets sick or who waste their money and whose faith is crushed by this. I don't understand how so many other companies can achieve fresh bread so effortlessly and charge less while you spring your prices up for a sandwich, which could just as easily end up as a hospital visit.

Disappointed with the size of Suzy Q's. I remember them as so much bigger with lots of cream in the middle. Why even bother to make these things that you have now not even half the size of the original. Hardly any cream at the center. Won't be buying these things...

The " Q " Should Stand For Quarantine!

Your Suzy Q product is absolutely horrendous. There is NOTHING good about it at all. As most consumers, we've been loyal to and have enjoyed your products for 30-40 years but I will NEVER waste my money on this product again. No taste; no rich dark color of chocolate; drier than anything I've ever tasted; smaller; and a pre-cut that looks more like 2 finger sandwiches on cardboard. I am totally disappointed with Hostess that you would sell this product. Your standard of quality has certainly changed. I have never felt compelled to contact ANY food product company with a complaint such as this in my 62-years of life. And NO!...I don't spend my time eating junk food and sweets. I happened to see the product and purchased it because I hadn't tasted them in at least 10 years. One *** and I threw the rest away.

I bought the new sweet shop brownies with m&ms & had 2 m&ms on my brownie. While the picture on the box has at least 11. It's like a plain brownie. It was very good otherwise. Just wish it had more m&ms. Love Hostess products!

Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes with exp date 8/26/17 are nothing like what I've purchased before, even recently. The cakes are tiny under the frosting, the size of the frosted top makes them appear larger than they are. The cake and frosting are dry. Frosting is too thin....

I bought a box of the "new" Hostess Suzy Q. It was awful! Very small, little filling and the cake was dry and tasteless. I tried two incase the first one was a fluke. Fool me once....this product would be a total waste of money even if there was not an earlier, better...

I have tired and tried and tried and even tried more to give the once Hostess name a chance. Every time I get the urge to have a treat they are my go to pick. It just seems the brand now owned by another company is completely gone to ***!! The generic brands are 10000...

Repulsive chocolate,I mean, FROSTED donettes!

I was looking forward to the great tasting chocolate donettes I loved as a kid only to be totally repulsed by the flavor! The semi sweet chocolatey taste has been replaced with an overpowering artificial sweetness. After eating only two my stomach is churning and my craving has turned to repulsion! I guess I won't have to waste my money on this garbage anymore. I'm forever repulsed by the hostess brand.
