Hostess Fruit Pies

0 Conversations

Among the snack food world, Hostess Brand products run high above competitors Little Debbie, Plantation, and others. The Hostess Fruit Pie is one such food that remains a step ahead of immitation snacks.

The Hostess Fruit Pie is available in many flavors, though the original three are cherry, blueberry, and apple. A firm, sugary crust flaked with sweet glaze surrounds the inner fruit filling. Each pie is large enough to satisfy most sweet tooths and a napkin is recommended during eating.

Hostess Fruit Pies soared to popularity in the 70s and were promoted by Marvel Comic superheros of all types. The original ads remain favorites among collectors.

Hostess Fruit Pies may be eaten straight from the package, but can be warmed in an oven, much like any pastry.

Today they remain a staple product of the Hostess snack food industry and occupy a proud spot in convenience stores and gas stations across the United States.
