Why Would Anyone Make Hostess Cupcakes Ice Cream?

Limited Edition Hostess CupCakes ice cream

If you know me, I like trying strange things I find in the store.  Some I even wind up liking. The jury is still out on the cappuccino-flavored Lays Potato Chips.

That being said, when I ran across the whole line of Hostess ice cream and ice cream sandwiches in the store, I knew I had to try at least one of them. I settled on a review of the Hostess CupCakes ice cream. Twinkies seemed like a really unlikely flavor and the Ding Dongs only came in ice cream sandwiches.

If you aren’t aware, the venerable Hostess company went belly up back in 2013 and we all thought the impossible had happened, that the Twinkies would run out prior to the zombie apocalypse.

The Hostess brand rose from the ashes though, at least in name. A new company was formed to buy up the rights to the name and I would assume the recipes. By the end of the year, CupCakes and Twinkies were back on the shelves. Now I’m not one to throw shade for no reason, but it is pretty obvious some cost-cutting measures went into effect. Cupcakes have gotten smaller, I’m pretty sure, as have the others.  To maximize revenue, I would assume, the new Hostess company is doing things like making a limited production ice cream as well. Hey why not, it can’t be worse than Crystal Pepsi.

I digress however, we had to pick up some Hostess CupCakes ice cream and give it a go.  The video below is the result of that adventure!
