Purchased some chocolate doughnuts and they tasted like poison

Hostess Brands - Purchased some chocolate doughnuts and they tasted like poison
These chocolate doughnuts taste like perfume or some kind of chemicals are on them. They need to be recalled or discontinued before someone gets really sick or they could die.

User's recommendation: Be careful.

Quality and taste of the Hostess Cupcaks

I have to say that the taste, texture, size of the Hostess Cupcake has really changed over the years. They used to be the best way back when. Now it is like eating a diet desert. They are almost half the size they used to be and just are not the same. Cost more and less quality. There is a brand they sell at walnut that taste like the old ones back in the day. They are not called Hostess Cup cake girl.

The current quality and taste of my favorite Chocolate Ding *** has changed dramatically in the last few months, I just bought two more boxes with the hopes that they would have returned to the way

As I stated above, whatever you've changed in the recipe for my chocolate Ding *** has completely ruined them.They are now bland, not nearly as rich, & chocolaty, & now smaller and don't even have as much vanilla filling as before.I no longer even enjoy them. Hope you go back to the way they were.

User's recommendation: Just enjoy your Hostess treats.

I bought a pack of powdered dinettes this evening was so disappointed because they are stale. I paid almost $5 for them. They do mot have a best used by date anywhere on the package.

These donettes are hard and dry. The flavor seems to be ok but the donut itself is not very satisfying.

User's recommendation: I went with the Hostess brand but wish I had of nit.

They offered coupons because I didnt have a sample of the donut for them to test

Original review posted by user Mar 03, 2022
Just a PSA to anyone that would happen to buy the blueberry donuts from hostess.... We bought these on Saturday. Opened one today and this was what was inside it. Thought it was mold but when we broke it in half baby spiders came out! (Thank God I was at work ) Even had a web built in between the middle.
