Hostess has decided to officially celebrate the DVD release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon by releasing Hostess cakes based on some of your favorite shape-changing Cybertronian warriors. If there’s one thing I don’t think of when I hear Optimus Prime, it’s ‘snowball’, so thanks Hostess for at least ruining that for me.
First, let’s get this out of the way: According to various taste-tester accounts, neither the Shockwave cupcake nor the Prime Snoball is really any different from the usual formula .
One can only wonder what the executive/creative agency meetings surrounding this concoction must have looked like, undoubtedly there were almost as many lawyers as there were chefs and almost as many interns/taste testers as there were vomit bags.
Ironically, the Optimus Prime snoball looks more like Shockwave, and the Shockwave cupcake just…well, looks like a regular Hostess f*cking cupcake. Weak. Still Hostess does go the extra limit by replacing that pink snow glitter with some shimmering energon flavor crystals. Sorry, Bay aficionados– allspark.
Supposedly available at grocery stores across the US, these things have been flying off the shelves quicker than it took Megan Fox to get kicked out of the franchise. Reviewer Mike Fahey had to order them from Hostess personally, almost Defcon 3-style. Better get to a grocery store quick if you plan on transforming your diet soon.
