America’s children get 40% of their calories from junk food. With Hostess ceasing operation, kids who make daily stops at convenience stores and bodegas for junk food on their way to school will be out of one option, at least temporarily.

Got a favorite organic or vegan recipe for one of the Hostess products that will disappear from store shelves soon? Let us know in the comments.

The cake part reminds me of a sponge cake, which is so good!! I like the fluffy cream cheese idea for the filling....loving ginger as I do I'd prob add some minced fine candied ginger root to the cream filling. Sweet idea for kids/teens to make......
