tonight was a night for hankerings. jason had a hankering for a spicy mcchicken sandwich. and since i had a hankering for dingdongs, i really couldn't chastise him for craving mickey d's after dinner. so off we went to walmart. he went to the double arches while i found the snack aisle. this is not a normal occurrence. i am all about treats, but they better be homemade baked goods. none of this store bought stuff. but i had decided, yes, i am going to buy myself some hostess goodness, and i am going to eat the whole box. we walked out of walmart (i feel super white-trashy every time i talk about walmart, but seriously, its about 7 breaths away. yes breaths not breadths.) hand in hand, and bags in hand. once we arrived home i plopped down on our comfy miracle couch and opened my box. i told jason he could have as many as he wanted (thinking he didn't like dingdongs) and he said he wanted all but one. i told him he could have as many as i wanted him to. which was two. you know what i love about dingdongs? (the only thing i remembered from the 2 times i've had them.) they each come individually wrapped. like each one is a little present. i unwrapped one and took my first and only joyous bite. alas, these dingdongs were exactly like the cold utah tundra... dry. i choked down the rest of the dingdong, hoping the creme filling would compensate for the obvious dryness but to no avail. i tweeted my disdain. then i ate another one. still no good. jason had one. he was disappointed. i threw the box to the floor. and then i read something interesting on the box. "quality guarantee: HOSTESS is committed to providing quality bakery products. we invite your comments and questions." yeah, i have a question, why are my dingdongs so dang dry?! so i wrote them a little message. which i can't actually remember now.. something about me crying over my failed midnight snack and the fact that i tweeted about the dryness.. i don't know.. but i assure you, 1) it was hilarious by my personally set standards, 2) they might not take me seriously, 3) which is a shame because i really do want a new box. or some hohos instead. cupcakes would be acceptable too.
i will keep you posted on how closely they stand by their guarantee. and now i think i'll go throw this box away, cause i may be tempted to try another one in the morning for breakfast. (you never know.. the rest could still be good.. maybe?)
