I'm afraid I won't miss them at all - I haven't eaten any of these treats since high school....

 
What happened? Did you grow up? If so, I'm sorry.

Check the best by/sell by date. Drake's is not long enough to still be considered fresh. The last exp. date I saw for Drake's coffee cakes was 11/28.

The Convenience store always has Tastykake @ 2/$6 and I always buy a box of Cream-filled Coffee Cakes. The last time I tried the new Kandy Kakes (York)...

They were so go...I can't buy them again.

I'll miss the two pack of chocalte cupcakes the most.
 
I'm kind of sad I'll never again be able to eat a frozen twinkie. Unless I find one way in the back of my freezer.
 
One thing's for sure, if they take Little Debbie away I don't wanna live on this planet anymore.

Though it was only a temporary specialty from several years ago; the Apple Cupcakes.
 
The Angel Cakes, which were seasonal and from even longer ago, also were unique.
 
The old Twinkie taste (the sweeter creme). Chocodiles. The orange cupcakes too. Suzy-Q's
 
Then, of course, the basic Drake's line: Devil Dogs, Yankee and Sunny Doodles, Ring Dings, Yodels, the unique, kosher mini-pies, and from years ago, the swiss rolls, and from even further back, the strawberry and banana Shortcakes (the fake Twinkies, basically). Lemon cookies
 
Dolly Madison
Yellow Zingers
Banana ["flip"] Dream (inherited from Mickey)
 
Here in NYC, Joey's (from NJ) and Mrs Freshley's (Flowers 3d party distribution label) have taken over the Hostess/Drake's racks
Recent news has the earlier named two most likely pursuers; Flowers and Bimbo, still looking into buying. Hope they resurrect all the cake brands/products.

It is nice to see a variety of snack & bread products that could never ever get shelf-space (going against a corporate giant) finally become available.

Even though many of the original products are back on the shelves in my region, I have yet to see my favourite Golden Cupcakes back. This is truly saddening. On the upside we discovered that Tastykakes "Dreamies" are far superior to Twinkies and the Hostess Apple Pies are just as good as always.  I'm keeping hope alive for my cupcakes to make a resurgence.

i miss Chocodiles

 
Chocodiles are back (for a few months, by now, in fact).
Don't taste the same to me; the frosting is drier or something.
But they are coming out with a cherry creme version (have to start looking for that. Probably only in boxes).
 
Suzy Q's are not back out yet. In their FB page, they seem to say there's no plans to bring them back right now.
 
Drake's did come back out with their pies over the summer. What all the people on the FB page are screaming for are Funny Bones, but they keep saying they have to make some special arrangement because of the peanut butter and people's allergies. (I don't know why they don't just make them wherever they make those Little Debbie PB Creme cookies).

Had forgotten about this thread, but since Suzy Q's were among the things we were all waiting for to come back, it was just under a year after the last post (10-'15), that they finally did (and will be approaching four years, now).
 
They were a little smaller, and drier and not as tasty.
BUT, another two+ years after that (just over a year ago; 2-'18) they finally restored the original size, taste and texture! And they remain in that for, to this day!
 
(In the interim, 10-'15, the Funny Bones finally returned, and then, 2-'16 Yankee Doodles followed, but with frosting, like Hostess and all the others! A year later, it was finally removed, though the distinctive paper baking cups never returned, and I feel this has affected the texture a bit, but it's still better without the frosting. We're still waiting on Sunny Doodles, which they seem to not even be thinking of. A few other new products were added, like fudge dipped Devil Dogs. Also, this whole time, Drakes has been slowly re-expanding beyond the original northeast area they were initially restored to, but is apparently still mainly east coast.
 
Unfortunately for me, adding these returning cakes to a near daily rotation, my blood sugar shot up by the end of the year, and I just had to chill on all this stuff, at least for now. So now, the brands I'm looking into are "ThinSlim" and "FatSnax", which are sugar free [using alternate sweeteners like Swerve], and use stuff like wheat and oat fibers and almond flour, so that the net carbs are only about 2g. The prices are ridiculous, at about $3 or a 56g pack of two cookies or small muffin. They taste a bit funny, but are still enough to slightly soothe a cake appetite. Wish Hostess and Drakes would try low carb snacks, though it's something that hasn't caught on yet).
