Love the cupcakes, but I've been given expired cupcakes a few times now and it's really disappointing and gross. Just makes me question what else in the store isn't being rotated.

What happened to these? Do I just remember them being better than they really are or do they just suck? Ate one and felt like I ate a brick. HARD PASS.

These cupcakes are great, but every time I have them recently, they look expired. The squiggly white frosting is now a light brown, something that was present when I accidentally bought cupcakes that were already expired once I ate them! Please fix this!

What happened to my favorite cakes??? Instead of the size of a cupcake, they are now just the size of a cupcake top. Very disappointed.

The hostess cupcakes are my all-time favorite, and usually they are moist and flavorful - The last couple of times I purchased the frosting is very thin and crumbles. The cake is very dry and flavor tastes like cardboard.
