I remember Ho Ho's as a kid in the Pacific NW. Also remember Zingers, Suzy Q's, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Cup Cakes and Snoballs. Were all of those Hostess offerings? I was a sugar addict, I know that. Favorite candy bar was the Marathon Bar!!!

As for the issues with cards, I only remember getting a few 78 and 79 and probably all from larger boxes. I started collecting cards in 1978, so missed a good portion of the Hostess issues when they were current.

I don't think Zingers was a hostess product their version was called tiger tails.
The best hostess product was their pies blackberry,lemon and the seasonal peach were my favorites. Unfortunately at the end they were horrible with very little filling but back in the 70's OH I can taste them now. Rick

I live less than a mile from what used to be a hostess outlet. From 1975 thru 1977 during card season my Dad and I would go through the boxes and put together a complete set. It was easy for us. I prefer a Ding Dong to a Ho Ho. And my understanding was chocolate covered ho hos and ding dongs were not shipped south during the warm summer months. I still have a pile of panels and a couple full boxes and an ad or 2 that I keep around simply because of the great memories.

I also remember getting cards from Ho Ho's in N Calif as a kid. Btw...Zingers were mentioned above..was from Dolly Madison and pictured Peanuts characters to pitch the products back then.

Would that be the East Brunswick location? That was a regular stop for me as a kid from 77-79. Even got a tour of the place with my school or Scouts. I think I can still smell the bread now

I did visit the East Brunswick outlet. But the local one was in Woodbridge NJ. Just off the green st . traffic circle. About a half mile from the first traffic cloverleaf ever constructed for route 35 and route 1. East Brunswick was attached to a bakery but woodbridge was just a warehouse. So no fresh bread smell. Now the PSA east coast office is here in Woodbridge So I save a ton in shipping in fact I pay no shipping for auto's. Just drop em off and pick em up about a week later. Jersey Rocks...

In the St. Louis area we had all mentioned above and also Chocodiles - chocolate covered twinkies. Can't remember if cards came from them.

Ho Ho's were the best though!

We only had fricken apples and grapefruit at my house. No cards with them either.
