Two lonely little Hostess Apple Fruit Pies fillD3 in the snack machine on the second floor of The Herald building.On Friday, Hostess announced it would closeafter decades of providing beloved snacks toyoung and old alike.No more Twinkies, CupCakes, Ding Dongs,Ho-Hos, Struessel Cakes, Suzy Qs, Fruit Pies,Donettes, Zingers or Coffee Cakes.No more soft, moist cake with cream fillingof perfect consistency. No more smooth, meltyfudge over chocolate cake. No more Coffee Cakeloaded with brown sugar and cinnamon. Nomore fruit pies with sweet, juicy bits of apple ina smooth filling. No more CupCakes with the 8perfect loops on the top.How did this happen? How could somethingthat has been a part of my life forever just goaway?Well, maybe not gone entirely. Rumor hasit some other company may pick up a few of Hostess’ offering.Hostess is blaming the company’s demise onunreasonable union workers. The workers sayHostess had already filed for bankruptcy and theyhad given some concessions and the money fromthose was to be plowed back into the company.Workers say it never happened. Top managementwas given 80-percent raises while the companywas still in bankruptcy. Blah, blah, blah.Let’s not quibble here. There’s too much atstake.I craved the Apple Fruit Pies when I was preg-nant for Cameron. I had to have one every day. Imean I HAD TO HAVE ONE!As a child, nothing was more delightful thanseeing that box come out of the grocery bag.Now they’re gone, gone, gone. Sob. Sob.The Hostess CupCake was first sold on May11, 1919. The poor CupCake won’t even see its100th birthday. It’s a crime, truly.According to Kitchenproject.com, “Twinkieswere introduced in 1933 by The ContinentalBaking Company in Indianapolis, which alsomade ‘Wonder Bread’ and had a snack line you’reprobably familiar with called Hostess. BakerJames A. Dewar got the idea for the ‘Twinkie’while he delivered one of their products, a cream-filled strawberry shortcake. The machines tomake these sat idle when the strawberry seasonwas over so he came up with an idea to use themto make a snack cake filled with a banana fillingand only charge a nickel for a package of two.It was good idea as money was tight for peopleduring the Great Depression.Just like the song went “Yes We Have NoBanana’s“ during World War II because bananaswere rationed, Hostess had to come up with adifferent filling.”They switched to vanilla creme and it waspopular so they never changed back.Other snacks followed to fill out the varietywe know now.And the rest, as they say, is history.Hey, does anyone have a Hostess Apple FruitPie they are willing part with? I feel the needcoming on.Oh, yeah. I’ll just go get those two in the vend-ing machine. I’ll eat one and maybe I can get ataker on eBay for the other. You never know.There just might be someone out there who likesthem more than I do — but I doubt it.:(
