Chocolate Covered Strawberry CupCakes II

This year Hostess has again released a limited edition of Chocolate Covered Strawberry CupCakes.

Chocolate Covered, Strawberry, CupCakes, HostessThere are some differences in the package art. The colors are a bit darker and a few things have moved around.

Here you see the individually wrapped cakes.

They must make it a bit smaller to keep the calories the same. There is definitely a nice strawberry flavor to the cake but I would rather have a less dense cake.

I don’t see the special edition Hostess CupCakes as often as before, but this is mainly because I no longer shop at a grocery store that carries as wide of a selection of Hostess products. I usually only find them during rare trips to Wal-Mart, which has a unique distribution agreement with Hostess.

Happy Valentine’s Day later this month 🙂
