A few days ago, my parents stopped by our house and, as they always do, brought along some sort of sweet for our kids. This time, they happened to bring a bag of Hostess Powdered Donettes with them.
When I saw this product, I honestly didn’t think too much of it. We have had plenty of pre-packaged powdered mini-donuts in the past. And, I really never noticed any sort of major difference between the brands. However, after trying the Hostess Donettes, I do have to say they are one of the exceptions to that.
One of the first things I noticed about this brand was how fresh the donuts were. And, this wasn’t just the day we opened up the bag either. The Hostess Donettes stayed fresh for three or four days after too (when we finally ate all of them). I have had many brands that were fresh the first day but weren’t even close to being as fresh by the second day; regardless of how well we sealed the bag.
As far as being a treat goes, I really couldn’t ask for anything better. As I said before, we have two kids. One of them is only a little over a year old. The Hostess Donettes are just the right size for them; especially the youngest. She is able to carry it around with her and it is just large enough to give her a filling snack without her leaving half of it laying on a table or, worse, behind a piece of furniture.
When it comes to us adults, one Donette isn’t quite as filling. But, two or three of them make a decent snack; one that gives us a sugar fix and satisfies us hunger wise without being too filling.
What is really amazing to me is just how many Donettes Hostess puts inside the bag. It really doesn’t look like that many when you see the bag but, as I mentioned earlier, there is enough to last the four of us for at least three or four days; and that’s with each of us having at least one per day. I have purchased just as many donuts (in similar sized bags) that wouldn’t last us a day.
If you are looking for something sweet that your entire family will enjoy and will give you your money’s worth, this is a product I would recommend. In fact, I liked them so much; we bought another bag just yesterday.
