Snack Report: Hostess Golden Cupcakes


It’s time for another Hostess themed snack report! This go around I broke out the Hostess Golden Cupcakes. While the last time I ended up thinking that fan favorite orange cupcakes were pretty great, I thought that the golden ones would be a sure fire hit with my mouth.


When I opened the package, I was slapped in the face by a smell. The sweet smell of chocolaty flavored love. This came from the chocolate top, which is the same as the kind found on the regular Hostess chocolate cupcakes. A thick solid disk that could be broken off and used as a Frisbee, just how I like it.

This is what "meh" looks like, if you've ever wondered.

After biting into the golden cupcake I realized it was a bit spongy for my taste. Not sure if this was due to the freezing process or if it’s just the nature of the beast.

A few more bites in and I had enough. While I appreciate what Hostess was going for here, chocolate is king for me. The Golden cupcake kind of tasted like… nothing. Well nothing except for the chocolate top and the signature cream filling.

Score: 1 out of 3 thumbs
