5. Another vintage ad celebrating 40 years of the Hostess Ding Dongs
Ding Dongs -- named for chiming bells used in vintage Hostess television commercials -- are ringing 40 sweet years as one of America's all time favorite snack cakes. Just one bite of the iconic chocolate cake enrobed with chocolate icing and Hostess' signature rich creamy filling leaves little doubt as to the source of Ding Dongs' enduring appeal.

A kid's world is a special world and Hostess is a part of it- Hostess and kids, they go together...well they did but not anymore :-(

9. 1986 Hostess Pudding Pie Commercial

The news that Hostess Brands Inc. is shutting down operations in the U.S. is particularly sad as it represents the death of an iconic brand, a brand that has been part of American pop culture for years.
