Seen in the Wild: Retro Hostess Packaging

Retro packaging appears to be an emerging trend on the shopping shelves.  In the wake of the retro Taco-flavored Doritos seen last week, I came across retro packaging for Hostess Twinkies (Banana flavor) and the classic Hostess Chocolate Cup Cakes.

I’m loving this trend and appreciate the simplicity of the older packaging.

    I noticed the cupcakes a few days ago at Wal-Mart and did a double take. The packages from the 70′s and 80′s have definitely stayed in my mind. I have also noticed retro packaging with other food items: Campbell’s soup, Kroger’s peanut butter, etc. Thanks for posting the pics!
