I saw this old Hostess fruit pie commercial kicking around the blogosphere and thought it was worth sharing. I actually had a Hostess fruit pie about a year ago for the first time in a few decades. Not only did it not taste as good as I remembered (a phenomenon shared by sugary cereals and canned ravioli), but I had the worst sugar rush and crash…I felt gross for the rest of the day. So not worth it…”vitamins and iron” be damned!
I’m sure this commercial was pretty slick and compelling back in the day…I shudder at how the marketing of junk food to kids has evolved and “improved” in the decades since this gem was on the air.
