After further forensic work I am now comfortable with saying there are six confirmed types of Hostess "Twinkies" cards. The sixth one has been added to the list above.

I've done this through study of the product and staining on the cards. I'm surprised Type 6 cards are as rare as they are as they would have been issued with individual Ho-Ho cakes. That seemed to be a staple product for Hostess then.

Nevertheless, the sizing and staining match up. So that's where we are.

I don't think it was actually a single pack. If I remember them right they came is packs of 2 or 3.

"Single pack" means single serving. All the Hostess individual packs contained two items.

With exceptions of course. There was the occasional special offer when they had three. Not all that uncommon for some stuff but never for others.

And of course - and yes, it's too late for the cards - chocodiles, which were a pack of one.

Do you have a scan of a 1977 Hostess Twinkies type 6 HoHos for reference?

I'm looking for a Aurelio Rodriguez #120 type 6 HoHos.
