    Re: What's your favorite snack cake?

    Little Debbie Oatmeal Sandwich Pies (or were they cookies?) were my favorite (extremely occasional) treat because of the delightfully chewy texture and the frosting between the cookie layers.  It was the best ratio of sandwich to frosting.  I haven't eaten one in decades, and I doubt I'd think they taste so great, now, but those were my childhood favorite of such things.  I'm not going to ruin my memory of them by actually eating one, now, though; I'd probably spit it out.

    I grew up in Pennsylvania, and Tastykakes were the only way to go!  The Butterscotch Krimpets were the best - Peanut Butter Tandytakes were good too.  Well, they were all good, but the Krimpets were special.  They were a rare treat for us, as my mom was very food conscious.  They do sell Tastykakes in boxes around here, the recipes seem to have changed and, as with everything these days, they're not quite as good as they used to be.  If they sold them individually, I'd buy one once in a while.  Actually, the Tasty Baking Company was in financial trouble a couple of years ago, and several well known chefs came to their rescue with a little cookbook full of recipes using Tastykakes.  Tastykakes were so good because they weren't too sugary, I would say their flavor was derived from lots of butter - no doubt very high in fat.  Maybe that's why they're different now.

    Hostess Snowballs. The WHITE ones. Then Drake's Coffee Cakes. Finally, Hostess Cupcakes. Dentists all over the U.S. made fortunes off these things!

    You left out my top 5: Ring Dings, Funny Bones, Yodels, Reverse Yodels, and Hostess Fruit Pies

    It's not necessarily a cake, but in our house it was always Flaky Puffs.  Always.

    Little Debbie Star Crunch... basically a chocolate rice krispy treat with added caramel.


    Also Little Debbie brownies, so fake, so delicious.  I had one recently and they still have that wonderful chewy texture.

    I used to love 'Ring Dings' and "Devil Dogs' and 'Funnybones' as a kid - and I'd always have one of those in my lunch once a day.  Now I like 'Swiss Rolls' - but weren't they called something else in the 70's?  I can't rememnber - but I remember they were covered individually in tin-foil like the ring dings. 

    Meow - scratch - Purrrrrrrr - Reeeeeeeeow....

    In our house it was generic Scooter Pies.  Cheap but sweet.

    You are right on about TastyKakes but you left out the vanilla Juniors with the milk chocolate frosting. TastryKakes really are better than any of the brands discussed in the article. But I also remember Dolley Madison snack cakes, like Zingers and GooGoos, and they were excellent in their day, too.

    Toss up between Funny Bones with the almost real tasting peanut butter filling and plastic covered chocolate frosting or whoopie pies with the tooth achingly sweet frosting middle which probably contributed more to diabetes research than all the public service announcements combined.

    Does anyone remember Dinkie Twinkies? I can't remember what they were but I do remember a HUGE fight in the neighbor's house next door where we could hear someone yelling "Heidi got TWO Dinkie Twinkies and I didn't get ANY." 

    That became sort of a phrase in our family.  But I don't know remember what a Dinkie Twinkie was.

    Were they called Dinkie Twinkies? I think Dinkie Twinkies were like Ho Hos and Swiss Rolls.
