Hostess Fruit Pies: The Look

Free enterprise exists. It allows private businesses to compete against one another. Adam Smith would discover this idea. Today, it allows Apple to compete against Microsoft, Nintendo to compete against Sony or Hostess to take on Tastykake.

First:

1) What products would you like to compete?

Please leave a comment below.

In my previous experiences with Hostess Fruit Pies, I found these pies fell apart in my hands. Recently, Tastykake released a series of pies. These pies were similar to Hostess Fruit Pies. Hostess is now back from bankruptcy. A snack pie competition begins!

I found the Hostess Fruit Pie, Apple, in a Walgreens store. I would not mistake it for any of Tastykake’s new pies because Hostess Fruit Pies are very distinct. They had a similar bright package but Hostess pies were much lighter. In this case, a tight emerald package hid the great taste inside a firm wrapper.

The Taste

I remembered opening this similar tight package and the filling ran over my hands. I want to quickly remove this idea from my thoughts. It is a new day and a new taste. Now, the tear of the wrapper reveals a pie of a different texture.

Tastykake’s pie texture is smooth. Hostess Fruit Pies start with a pie shell that is coarse and uneven, in a good way. The shell had a generous glaze but it hid within the texture of this course and sweet dessert.

I needed a knife to cut this Hostess Apple Pie. The shell is sweet, steady and dense. Inside the shell, there was a decent amount of pie filling and generous pieces of apple made this bronze filling continue its sugary display.

The taste was all-sweet.A taste of butter and lemon exist in the pie but sweet and tasty marked this pie. I almost wonder if you can heat this pie to get even more flavor out of it. Vanilla, or Chocolate, ice cream might even add a different flavor to the pie.

In The End

A Hostess Fruit Pie, Apple in this case, represented a new experience. It was a solid pie. It had a different taste, size and texture, in comparison to Tastykake. The only concern I had with Hostess Fruit Pies is their availability. I found this one at Walgreens. I found another on Wal-mart’s website. I suggest you keep an eye out for them. Hostess is back and free enterprise is healthy.

      I love the Cherry Hostess Fruit Pie... I know I shouldn't, I try to avoid them... but, from time to time... I just have to have one. Thanks for the reminder, since it has been awhile! Gotta' have one! ;-)

      Hostess is in a resurgence. So Pies, Twinkies and all flavors have come back.

      I can't remember when I last had one of these pies. I remember them being very fruity, what I loved best about them. I may have to try one again now that you have reminded me about these treats.

      I have loved Hostess fruit pies since childhood, and it didn't occur to me until I saw one in the gas station yesterday that they were under the same wave of bankruptcy that took down Twinkies and Ding Dongs. Other pies are okay, but since I grew up with Hostess I'll always have a bias toward them. Great hub!
