A random day in early October I woke up with the words snack cake stuck in my head. As in, I could really go for a slice of snack cake…for breakfast! Oddly enough, I wasn’t really sure what snack cake is, only that I wanted some, stat.
I knew I had to make it happen.
So first I Googled “snack cake” to find out exactly what it is.
I was way off. Turns out, it’s not even the slicing kind of cake.
According to Wikipedia, it is things like Twinkie, Ho Hos, Ding Dong, Ring Ding, and Devil Dog. (Speaking of Hostess treats like Twinkie and Ho Hos, did you see that Hostess announced that they were forced by a Bakers Union strike to shut down all operations and sell all company assets?! I was floored when I read that earlier this week. With an American icon like that shutting down, it feels like the end of an era…even though I honestly can’t remember the last time I bought one of those treats. More than anything else, my heart truly goes out to the employees and their families who have been affected by this.)
