Looks like Suzy-Qs are discontinued... AGAIN!!! I don't understand what problems Hostess has with it's own Suzy-Qs! First they create them, then take them away, then bring them back, then take them away again, then bring them back, now they've taken them away again!! Is there no end to this prejudice between Hostess and the one successful product they ever had? Who doesn't love Suzy-Qs????? I find it increasingly harder to believe that they aren't selling enough Suzy-Qs to keep them on the market. I look on their posts, and it seems most of their customers are upset that Suzy-Qs are discontinued again. These are just a few examples of how loved Suzy-Qs were...
I miss my Suzy-Qs!!!! Apparently, Hostess is now owned by some new owners. I said I think I'd better have a chat with them! They're ruining everything. First, they make Twinkies thinner, and only give it like an eye-dropper's drip of the cream filling. I liked them a lot better when they used to put a shit-ton of cream filling in each cake. Now, you bite into a Twinkie today, you can hardly even find the cream filling. It reminds me of the woman in those old Wendy's commercials who coined the phrase "Where's the beef?"
I swear, the cakes in the pictures on the package look better than the actual real things!
I mean look at that! They make it look like they put a generous amount of cream in the center. When really, it's little more than the amount you can fit into an eye-dropper. I was disappointed when Twinkies made a comeback in 2013, and I was greeted with Twinkies that hardly looked or tasted like the original version, with a lot less cream! Let's face it, the cream is the best part of any Hostess cake. And now, they are taking them away. That's what I loved about Suzy-Qs. They had the most amount of cream in the center. More than any other Hostess cake!!
Trust me, they are that satisfying! Look at the cream to cake ratio on that baby! I drool just thinking about it! I remember when Hostess went out of business in 2012, the one thing I feared was never seeing or tasting Suzy-Qs again. In 2015, they brought Suzy-Qs back again, but they were like little, square hockey-pocks. Very minimal amount of cake, let alone filling! I didn't like them. I bought a box at the Walmart in Coos Bay, and tried them, and I just did NOT like them. Then Hostess discontinued them again. Then brought them back in 2018, back to their original form, and I was so happy again! I started buying them in bulk! It was said Hostess brought them back again due to protests from fans who demanded they bring them back. I was so grateful. I thought Hostess learned their lesson and would never again take Suzy-Qs away. Boy was I wrong about that! In 2021, I couldn't find them anywhere at all. Not even the places I always typically found them.
You know what I wish? I wish Hostess would take away those darned Zingers, and bring back Suzy-Qs instead! I hate Zingers!!! I think that's the worst crap Hostess makes! I tried some when I first saw them in 1990. I got the chocolate variety, because that was the only Zingers variety that looked even remotely appetizing. It looked like upside-down chocolate Twinkies with icing on top. So, I thought it would be good. Then I took a bite. I was so grossed out by it! The cake it's self was like biting into a sponge and rubbery, it looked like it was supposed to have a creamy filling, which was, for the most part, mislaid. Except for 3 small holes and some white crap that had the consistency of watery snot. And the icing. Woa boy! The icing was tasteless, and hard as a rock. It tasted to me like plastic with sugar added to it, with no chocolate flavoring at all. It had the texture of a board game! To this day, I refuse to eat Zingers. Yet, I keep seeing them! Every place that carries Hostess products has those damn Zingers!
If Hostess intends to stay in business, I suggest they listen to their customers. And STOP TAKING AWAY THE GOOD STUFF!!!!! Stop taking away our Suzy-Qs. If you must remove a product, next time, make it those doggone Zingers! I don't know why they can't just leave the Suzy-Qs alone! We love them.
