Company fixed the issue and I have been provided with apology. They apologized and sent me gift vouchers.

Better than nothing. I'm just glad that nobody got severely sick.

Ding *** are not what they use to be

Ding *** back in the day were soooooo good! They were individually wrapped in foil, the chocolate frosting was thicker, shiny, dark and smooth, I purchased a box yesterday and was shocked to see what the Ding *** looked like and tasted like. After eating one Ding *** I through the box away. Hostess go back to your original recipe.

User's recommendation: Do not buy Hostess Ding ***.

Blech!

Ho Hos and Ding *** used to be my favorite go to for a snack. Not any more. Theyre gross. Not sure what they changed. I do know that they are now nasty. Gritty texture and stale tasting. The coating tastes like waxy sugar and no longer resembles chocolate. I will never buy a Hostess product again unless its the old recipe.

User's recommendation: Don’t waste your money.

Missing a crumb cake in box.

I purchased a box of cinnamon streusel coffee cakes and once opened , only 7 cakes inside. Box reads 8 cakes. Otherwise cakes were fresh.

User's recommendation: Shake the box , if it is not full hpoefully you will feel the void.

Awful chemical smell in product

Just bought a package of zingers a couple days ago and had a couple that were perfectly fine and nothing seemed to be wrong with them. On the third package, I opened it and I was hit with a pungent smell of something similar to superglue or nail polish remover. I opened the rest of them and a few smelled like play dough and another having the superglue/acetone smell. I did not consume any more of these after.

User's recommendation: I would not buy these.

Greasy and dry donettes

I bought Hostess brand powdered sugar donettes with an expiration date of April 15, 2021 (today is March 9, 2021). The donettes left a greasy residue in my mouth and were dry. Where did the really great donettes go? Who ever is making the product for Hostess should be fired and the product line turned over to another company. I won't be buying this brand again because of subpar quality. What ever happened in the past when the original producer sold out has definitely caused a downgrade in quality.

User's recommendation: Buyer Beware!

Went to Walmart and bought double chocolate flavored mini donuts for breakfast. My son wanted kne tonight. So I opened the bag and most of the donettes were all in crumbled pieces. Not very pleased to say the least.

User's recommendation: Don't buy them!

HoHo' s

The HoHo's I used to love are no more. I have bought in hopes that my original HoHo's that I loved are still available, but no instead I was very disappointed. These new supposed HoHo's are nothing like what they used to be. The chocolate is hard and doesn't even taste like chocolate. The cake is hard and not even spongy like cake. The white creamy sweet center is not even creamy or sweet. It's totally disgusting. Took one bite and spit in the garbage where it belongs. Never buying again unless they change back to the way they used to taste. So disappointed.

User's recommendation: Don't eat these they are disgusting!

Quality of product.

I am a sixty five year old Hostess customer. I have grown up on your products. I am sorry to say I will never buy another Hostess fruit pie. They were at one time the standard of fruit pies but as of late they have hit bottom. The pie crust is too thick and hard and the filling as the constancy of late weeks jam left on the counter. It hurts me to have to write this but your pies were so much better years ago. If you ever decide to change the freshness and quality of your fruit pies I would be happy to buy again , but as it stands now your pie does not live up to the Hostess name brand. Good luck but I won't spend not no more dime on your pies.

Taste and smells terrible

I just bought a pack of the powdered doughnuts out of a vending machine. omg....the taste is like I poured chemicals in my mouth and now my throat is burning and a little light-headed. I jump online to see if any recall had been posted to find several complaints about this. This is not unacceptable with after having multiple complaints. You truly need to fix this problem. I hope I do not get sick.

User's recommendation: DO NOT BUY.
