The old hostess fruit pie

I have a couple of vivid memories about fruit pies. My dad used to go to 7-11 where he would purchase one for each of us 5 kiddos and we would devour them feverishly. Except for my brother, Brian. He always got the lemon flavor. And he ate it soooooo S-L-O-W-L-Y. So much so that the rest of us had long since finished ours, and were drooling for more. That's when he would tease us by making sounds of ecstasy while he savored each bite, even dipping his finger into the pie and licking off the gelatinous fruity filling with great animation.

Cherry was my favorite flavor

I can't tell you how much I enjoy your posts (and work, of course!). Thought I'd tell you.

I used to be addicted to them, Lori. Especially the cherry and lemon flavors. I heard the new ones just aren't the same.
