Oh Hostess you spoil me. In honor of celebrating 90 years of being America’s favorite cupcake, Hostess is giving away their chocolate CupCakes. Not only did they give me 8 boxes of cup cakes for me to share with my face to face friends; they gave me coupons for free cupcakes to share on my blog. I think they gave me five coupons. So all five coupons will go to one person.
Did you know that the cupcake was sold for 30 years before the signature squiggles and vanilla-crème were added? That’s right, originally in 1919 it was just a chocolate cupcake.

While it’s hard to improve on perfection, consumers have been able to sink their teeth into a few twists on the original over the years, including the popular Golden CupCakes, which debuted in 1999. Hostess also offers seasonal themed cup cakes including “Baseballs” in the spring – cup cakes with vanilla icing and red-swirl “stitching.”
Captain CupCake, who was introduced in the 1970s, is one of several Hostess snack “mascots” along with everyone’s favorite cowboy, Twinkie the Kid.
The original Hostess CupCake slogan was "You get a big delight in every bite!"
