Something about Hostess pies turns me off. Maybe it’s the words "beef fat" in the ingredients. I know animal fat traditionally was used in pies, but in this day and age, it seems like a very unhealthy and unnecessary relic.
Actually, my wife tells me Oreo cookies used to contain animal fat, too. But now they don’t. So if Nabisco can take it out, why can’t Hostess?
If I want a pie, I’ll take a real, homemade one over the packaged variety any time.
I Think Beef Fat has turned out to be better than it’s rrepacement, Trans- FAT!!
