      Actually, there were no Ding Dongs in New York, Mick. They were called Big Wheels, so as not to be confused with Drake’s Ring Dings, which Hostess also produced.

      • Hostess bought Drakes long after Ring Dings did their damage in my youth, JC. Back then my best friend and I managed to maintain our bond despite the Hostess/Drakes rift between our families. It was Ring Dings and Devil Dogs vs. Ding Dongs and SuziQ’s. This was a serious matter – right up there with Hot Wheels vs. Matchbox.

        Big Wheels didn’t show up here till “The Banana Splits” were in reruns, and Watergate and the Vietnam war had torn apart the world anyway, so the snack schism seemed less consequential. Besides: we had Pringles and Marlboros by then.
