Hostess Brands was actually only formed in 2013 but can trace it's lineage back to the attractively named “Interstate Bakeries Corporation” of 1930.  We think “Hostess” sound a bit more cuddly and approachable.  Anyway, you will find their name on such classics as the Twinkie, the Ding Dong and the Sno Ball.  Ah, the Twinkie – anyone who is a fan of the film Die Hard has to try one.
