Pumpkin Spice CupCakes II

This fall saw the return of Pumpkin Spice CupCakes from Hostess.

Pumpkin Spice CupCakes, Hostess, Snack Cakes, Limited EditionThe package is very colorful with fall colors. I also like the piece of pumpkin pie and the cinnamon sticks.

Last year they had Pumpkin Spice CupCakes, but are they the same this year?

I was a bit disappointed that the CupCakes did not have as many sprinkles as were shown on the box. I always like the texture of sprinkles. I am a little surprised that they didn’t just go with a squiggle of pumpkin frosting.

This year they went with the squiggle. There is a bit of a color bleeding issue with the frosting, but it tastes good 🙂

Not as good as the Caramel Apple CupCakes, but still delicious.
