Hostess’ Ding Dong: ‘Everybody Forgot About Me’

When the news of Irving-based Hostess going out of business broke last month, most of the media attention was focused on whether junk food junkies would be denied their beloved Twinkies.

But what about Ding Dongs? To my mind, they are clearly the finest of the Hostess products, and yet our own Bradford Pearson left them off his laughable list of the company’s finest offerings. (Orange cupcakes? Huh? Never heard of them.)

Well, over the weekend, in the only decent bit on Saturday Night Live, Mr. Ding Dong broke his silence. His back-up plan if Hostess products do indeed disappear from the Earth?  He’s going back to the rap game.
