Star Spangled CupCakes II

This year for 4th of July Hostess has brought back Star Spangled CupCakes.

Star Spangled CupCakes, Hostess Snack Cakes, Squiggle, Holiday, 4th of JulyThe CupCakes look very patriotic with the red, white and blue frosting.

The box itself is very colorful and the fireworks and stars add a nice touch.

Another interesting thing for this year is that there are both sprinkles and the original squiggle. I have not see this combination before. However, the sprinkles are not well distributed on the CupCake. This seems to be a problem that Hostess is having a difficult time fixing.

I have one saved to eat on the 4th of July along with one of the Red, White & Blue Twinkies.

Which would you choose, the CupCakes or the Twinkies?
