The Last Ring Ding

Everybody was all upset about the passing of Twinkies when the Hostess baking company went belly-up late last year. But who will mourn the Drake's Ring Ding?

I will. Everyone knows Twinkies will return after the bankruptcy proceedings are through. But no one is betting on anyone resurrecting the Ring Ding (Or Ding Dong, or King Don-aliases by which Ring Dings were sold over the years).

I made my final box of Ring Dings last as long as I could, but inevitably my supply was all but exhausted. Join me for this bit of history as the Last Ring Ding has its last fling.
