Product Review: 100 Calorie Hostess Cupcakes

Hi, my name is Amy, and I’m a sugar addict. It’s been approximately 14 hours since my last cookie.

Yeah, so this probably isn’t news to you. I mean, I do have a whole other freaking blog dedicated to sweets (shameless plug). I’m not going to offer up any excuses for this addiction. Besides, my addiction to running cancels out my addiction to sugar, right? Totally.

Okay, so for days that I run more than 4 miles, I have no problems baking cookies, brownies, a whole cake, whatever and scarfing it down. I earned it, right? But for my rest days or for these Monday and Wednesday 3 mile powder puff runs, I feel totally guilty consuming half a pound of sugar… so, on those days… this is my saving grace!

Look y’all! It’s only 100 calories per pack and each pack has 3 cupcakes! It’s only 100 calories! It’s cake! Each mini cupcake has a teeny-tiny dollop of cream inside, too! And a itsy bitsy smear of icing on top!

Ok, so I’m a little excited… but, dude, these are some good cupcakes. I buy these boxes in bulk. Sometimes I eat two packets, too. But, shhhhhh.. don’t tell anyone. I mean, it’s still only 200 calories, ya know?

They make yellow cake and carrot cake ones, too. But I’ve only tried the chocolate ones.

If you’re a sugarholic like me… you should totally try these out. Chocolate is so much better when there’s no guilt involved.

I have to confess: I bought (and ate)swiss cake rolls this morning. They weren't the 100 calorie kind:(
