America’s favorite snack brand rolled out a number of patriotic treats just in time for the Fourth of July.What better way to celebrate another American summer than to indulge in a few festive treats? This summer, Hostess is releasing two brand-new treats — Strawberry Donettes and Star Spangled Ding Dongs. In addition, the brand is bringing back its limited-edition Red, White, & Blue Twinkies and Star Spangled CupCakes to join the patriotic lineup. “Hostess is an iconic American brand,” Keith Peterfeso, Brand Director for Hostess’ All Day Snacking said in a press release. “We are proud to celebrate summer and Americana by expanding our patriotic line of ‘Red, White & Blue’ treats.” If you’re a fan of Ding Dongs, then you’re going to love Hostess’ patriotic take on the treat.
