Review: Hostess - Orange CupCakes

Hostess Orange CupCakes are orange flavored cake with a creamy filling finished with an orange frosting and trademark squiggles.

A 2-pack goes for around $1.59 at my local supermarket.

I have to say after the whole strawberry cupcake experience, I wasn't looking forward to trying these at all. But I was pleasantly surprised, the cake portion tasted like plain yellow cake with a lightly orange flavor to it ("orange oil" is listed among the ingredients). It wasn't as sticky as a Twinkie either but retains a reasonable amount of moistness
The frosting was fondant-like with orange flavoring as well.
The overall effect was pleasant and actually pretty good and much better than the strawberry version.
