ho ho's, 10 oz. box
Box appeared smaller than usual, but I purchased it anyway. I was shocked to find that the product is now about 25-30% smaller than before. Two bites and it was gone. These were NOT "mini's" or "fun size", etc. Hostess, along with a LOT of other companies, has reduced the size/volume of their product and is still charging the consumer just as much money, or more. Just how stupid do they think we are? That we wouldn't notice? Same deal with the Hostess pies; they're now over 25% smaller than they used to be, and cost the same or more. Joining this rip-off bandwagon are the cereal companies with their smaller boxes, soda companies with their flimsy aluminum cans than buckle in your hands, water companies with their thinner plastic bottles that also buckle in your hands, etc. This all needs to stop! Either return these items to their original state, or lower your prices to compensate for the reduced size/quality. I'm tired of being ripped off every time I turn around by these money-grubbing companies! I will NOT buy another Hostess product until this is rectified.
sweet shop brownies with milky way pieces
Best by March 17 2017 E [protected] 011 11:06 6
Purchased at a Big Lots on March 17 2017 for $.75 plus tax
This has to be the most poorly produced product ever. It is so dry and tasteless, I am beyond words. I can not believe Hostess would put this product on the market and expect people to think it is good.
If this the best Hostess can do they need to get out of the business.
chocolate and bavarian creme danish
Circle K convince store, Dummerston VT (West River Rd)
I entered the store at approximately 1030 hours and purchased the HOSTESS brand creme Danish (5 oz) size.
I returned to my office to consume the danish and the coffee I purchased right after leaving the store.
After I got to the office, I opened to package and uncovered a large spot on the back side of the danish covered in MOLD. This danish has a "best by" date of MARCH25 (E 0119 8100 is printed on package). I am VERY glad I waited until I got back to my office and did not consume the portable danish while I was driving. I would have gotten very sick.
Resolution- replacement and refund
I go to the store (meijers) and pick out a bag of powdered donettes only to get home and find out they are already expired by over a week and are now not edible since they have mold starting to grow evem though they were never opened. I am very disappointed in the fact that you would allow a store to keep expired products on their shelves and get people sick. I believe I am entitled to a refund as well as some vouchers for free products due to your companies negligance.
hi my name is eric
so i bought two Danish is and one for me and one for my 2 year old son. after opening them i found melted plastic inside of the Danish. i had it sent out to a lab and awaiting the results. but to be honest i have never though in a million years i would ever find any thing like this in your food this was for my son. im really disappointed. i just dont get how your how your company has been around for so long and something like this could ever slept by your employees.my son could have choked on this.
These donuts are stale and smell like drywall and paint. They tasted like soapy paint/drywall. The taste was so horrible I couldn't get the taste out of my mouth. My friends complained about the taste too when i shared some with them. I threw away the donuts and the wrapper smelled as well. It doesn't even have a expiration date. I remember these tasting sweet and smelling sugary.
hostess vanilla zingers 10ct
I purchased a box of the Vanilla frosted zingers from my local Woodman's grocer in North Aurora, IL on 2/23/2017. Upon opening it was observed that one of the cake snacks has an object on the side of it that does not appear to be edible. It looks like an insect, though I am not certain. The object is also very hard in texture. I absolutely love the vanilla zingers and this is completely unacceptable. I am always buying 2-3 boxes at a time and though this problem has never occured in the past it is an issue that has made me uncomfortable in proceeding to purchase any more of your product in the future. I am not sure what can be done to resolve this issue other than to prevent it from happening in the future.
I just can not understand why every time I buy a apple fruit pie it tastes old, stale, and dry! I think it may be because of the packaging. They now come in this cardboard box, so the pie isn't sealed correctly! WHY? Who thought this was a good idea? The worst part is I am pregnant and I always crave these apple pie cakes so every time my husband gets me...Read full review of Hostess Brands and 1 comment
Bought powdered donuts since i had a craving, bit into first one and all i could taste was grease. The donut wasnt greasy but it was like the donuts sat next to a fryer for a year and soaked it all in. I tried another trying to be positive as im pregnant and just wanted a powdered donut but the entire 6 pack tasted like grease in turn making me sick all day. I had a different brand in hand and switched when i saw hostess..big mistake!
hostess blueberry muffins
I opened the Hostess Blueberry Muffins. Brand new package. Not expires until March 2017.
Most of the packages were full of mold and very smelly. I have pictures to show proof. It was awful. I'm so glad my son didn't eat them.
That could have very scary.
I think you need to be notified about these kinds of errors so that other kids will not get sick. I've never seen anything like this before. Or smelt anything like that. It was so bad.

deep fried twinkies
I found this product on the shelf as a display along with many other packages of deep fried twinkies at Mc Dill Air Force base commissary in Tampa, Florida today. When I got them home all of this product had mold. I had thought it was strange to see them out of the freezer section but just thought they had a product now that didn't need to be frozen. It plainly states on the box to keep frozen. I called the customer service number at the commissary and whoever I spoke with could have cared less.
product fruit pies minis
I have now purchased several packages of mini pies apple and cherry my complaint is the filling inside. It is a gummy texture and chewy. I have bought Hostess products for many years. My grand children like them for after school snack but lately they say are yuck like a stale gummybear. I hope you can correct this problem I was so excited when your products came back to the stores thanks for your help.
The mini pies by hostess the filling inside is a gummy, chewy texture. A lack of flavor but the crust is just like it has always been. I have purchased several packages from different stores and they are all the same. very disappointed.
I purchased 2 boxes of the so called new Suzy Q snack cakes at Walmart. I was disappointed to the point of anger! How dare you call those tiny horribly dry as sand cakes a Suzy Q?? Either bring them back right or don't bother trying to push this deceitful crap on us. Most of the outside of the cake came off on the cardboard strip! My 3 year old neighbor...Read full review of Hostess Brands and 12 comments
My wife purchase two bags of mini donuts, one powdered, one glazed. Both had a terrible taste, like Kerosene. Both were old tasting. Bot had ok dates. One was dated June 02, 2016, the other was dated May 20th 2016.
we ate a couple from each bag. Did not finish donuts at all. We still have bags and donuts. Not good at all and tasting terrible. We would some sort of response.
their cookies were almost old
I have bought cookies from the company www.hostessbrands.com. I received two packages and was shocked that the expiry date was almost due. I emailed the seller and told that I wouldn’t happy to get almost old cookies, and I would love to get money back or change these packages for new one. But the seller told me that they wouldn’t send new order, because they haven’t had time for me and my problems. Awful attitude.
out of date
I opened my Twinkie today to find a large amount of green slime inside the packaging and on the cake itself. Prior to this I ate another bar which had no problems (as far as I was aware anyway), I am utterly disgusted. I don't know whether a mishap happened with the individual bar being out of date or in the box, but it makes me feel as if one of their employees had a cold at the time of packaging. Kinda ruined twinkies for me. PS. I bought this product yesterday, in date.
The New Hostess Bakery, Hostess Brands, etc., is foisting its old brand name, but selling terrible quality snacks. So far I've tried the old Hostess labeled traditional chocolate cupcakes and their Fruit (Lemon) fried pies. The new stuff is of excessive sugary content and lacking texture and flavor. Yecch! I suppose the buyers (Little Debby?) need to pay for their purchase, but it won't be with my money!Read full review of Hostess Brands and 29 comments
It is understandable why you would not want to check the expiration date on all of the products that you purchase. People who tell you to do this are irrational. However, the complaint should be made toward the grocery store that you purchased the item from, they are the ones in charge of taking items off the shelf that are beyond expiration date. They are the ones who put out an expired item in the first place.Read full review of Hostess Brands and 5 comments
Just purchased at Wal-Mart on 08/19/2015, opened next morning and there was a large amount of mold on one. Would like a replacement or refund. My phone number is [protected].Read full review of Hostess Brands and 165 comments
