Hostess Cupcake Celebrates 90th Anniversary

Hostess is celebrating 90 years of cupcake goodness! The best-selling snack cake in history was created in 1919, but the signature "squiggle" topping was not added until 1950 when D. R. "Doc" Rice created the seven loops and vanilla creme filling that we all identify with this product.

More than 600 million Hostess Cupcakes are eaten every year - more than that other famous Hostess product...the Twinkie. Memphis, TN holds the top spot for eating the most Hostess Cupcakes, followed by St. Louis, Cincinnati, Las Vegas and Louisville.

I believe the original Hostess Cupcake slogan "you get a big
delight in every bite" could describe any cupcake!
