Last week, I was roaming the grocery store aisles looking for this year’s monster cereals, when I stumbled across Snoballimus Prime!
Hostess has a new marketing gimmick where they partnered with Hasbro for Transformers branded snack cakes. I’m not really sure what they’re promoting since there isn’t a movie or cartoon out there at the moment, but I’m always up for a branding with a pop culture spin!
I don’t think the photo of this snack could be any less appealing. This picture makes last year’s Green Lantern Glo-Balls look tasty.
Shockwave = Chocwave. I imagine that name was a little easier to come up with than “Snoballimus.”
Call me old fashioned, but these cupcakes look like they’re the tastiest.
Seriously, though, I really do love seeing characters on packaging, and it leads me to buy things that I would never normally purchase. Score one for Hostess, and may they keep producing these branded campaigns!
UPDATE: Bumblebee Twinkies exist too!
