Comment on Homemade Hostess Sno Balls by Jenny M..

Why would anybody over the age of 8 eat these things? Because they taste great, that’s why. I’m one of the huddled masses who cried real tears upon the death of Hostess and drove lickety-split to the nearest grocery to fill my cart with all the pink, marshmallowy, coconut-topped gooey confections I could find. I’ve been eating them for more than 50 years, and I’m not about to stop. But…I’m down to two packages. I hear Walmart makes a decent substitute. I’ll try your recipe, thank you very much!

Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
