Review: Hostess - Bakeshop Cupcake Cookies

Hostess Bakeshop Cupcake Cookies are chocolate iced cookies with the brand's signature vanilla icing squiggle.

A 7-oz package of 10 cookies cost me $3 on sale.

While these are called "cookies," they're more like cupcake tops as the softness and consistency are very similar to regular Hostess Cupcakes. They tasted better and were moister though; there's a richer chocolate quality to the cake.

The chocolaty icing/frosting that covers the cupcakes felt almost identical to the frosting on a Hostess Chocolate Cupcake. There was a waxiness to it, a bit of sweetness, and an odd lack of chocolate flavor. Interestingly, the icing covered the flat of the cookie rather than the mound (although I suppose it makes sense if you're trying to closely mirror the original Cupcakes).

The trademark squiggle fared a little better. It was basically somewhat hardened sweet vanilla frosting.

Basically when it comes down to it, Hostess Bakeshop Cupcake Cookies are an easily snacked fresher and more chocolaty version of a Hostess Cupcake, which makes them pretty nice. Not quite as nice as a fresh-baked cupcake but still pretty good.
