Hostess Cupcakes - Did They Get Smaller or Did We Just Get Bigger?

jeffrey | Oct 13, 2008 09:44 AM

On a whim, the wife and I bought a box of Hostess cupcakes over the weekend (regular ones, not the 100 calorie snack size). We both agreed that they seemed about a third smaller than we remembered from our grade school days.

Does anyone know if Hostess reduced the size of their cakes over the years, or are we just now used to larger cupcakes and muffins from local bakeries?

Thanks.
