Ode to orange cupcakes

No actual oranges were harmed in the making of this treat. It says "natural orange flavor" right on the box, which is a dead giveaway to the skeptic in me that there is nothing orange within. Also note the appearance of the orange on the box: not an actual orange but an orange sort of shaped cupcake.

Truth in advertising!

In Iowa I can't find a box of these and only rarely do they sell the two-pack. When I was in Ohio, I went grocery shopping and brought these back in my bag. I have eaten them all and I don't regret a single one.

Have you watched Unwrapped on the Food Network? They go to places like Hostess and show how treats are made and they actually look like they might be yummy like when your mom made your 8-year-old self homemade cupcakes. I knew someone who worked at Nabisco and he said Oreos and chocolate chip cookies coming right off the line were out of this world.

At the grocery store this evening I bought a box of nutty bars. The teenagers at my check-out were commenting on them and I told them I bought nutty bars because I don't like them and they got a chuckle out of that. So I pointed out that Hostess ho-hos, Suzy Qs and Twinkies were on sale but I didn't buy them.

They both got a kick out of that as well and laughed, "Because obviously! You would eat them!"

I'm here all week.

I am so with you! I'm a sucker for the Hostess (or Tastycake, or Little Debbie). I just can't keep them in the house. Or Nutella. Or frosting in a can.

OK, probably more info than you needed to know.

Did I mention that I'm meeting my new dog tonight?

Haha...I love them all! I don't need to love them, but I do. And the love of my life is Mallo Cups...they are hard to find. The occassional minimart carries them...as I get older, they are almost too sweet for my tastes...notice I said almost, not that they were.

Crafty, I thought so, too!

Juice, I'm so excited about the dog. You can celebrate by walking to the store for a jar of Nutella!

Rose, I know what you mean about "almost" too sweet. When you want to sound grown up, you can talk about enjoying them in "moderation." ;)
