These are just like the Hostess fruit pies, but they are filled with vanilla or chocolate pudding. The entire pie was dipped in chocolate. The ad campaign consisted of the slogan "Pudding Power".

I actually found these in a Circle K gas station in Champaign IL recently. Still amazingly good.

I amost gagged when I read this off of article on unhealthy breakfast foods: Hostess Chocolate Pudding Pie (1 pie) 520 calories 45 g sugars 24 g fat (14 g saturated, 1.5 g trans) Skip past the enriched flour and water on the ingredient list and here's what you get: animal shortening, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, sugar, modified corn starch, butter, chocolate liqueur, and so on. Any one of these ingredients alone might prompt you to raise an eyebrow, but taken together they should invoke a gag reflex and a sprint for something far healthier. -->Saturated fat equivalent: 2 McDonald's Quarter Pounders

I found the Hostess Chocolate Pudding Pies at a little gas statiion named Rocks in West Virginia. I live in nothern Virginia and it's about 50 mins away. I have 7 pies right now in the freezer just waiting to be eating but I'm hesitant to eat them b/c just one pie has over 500 calories and that's a lot, but there sooooooo good.

I loved these things! Been searching for them, everything I read, including from HOSTESS itself says they are discontinued. But, I walked into a gas station today and saw the Hostess Chocolate Pudding Pie - grabbed it as fast as I could! However, my favorite was the Vanilla pudding pie that was coated in chocolate - I would give anything to go back 25 yrs and buy some more of those!! I dont know how Hostess says they dont make them, but yet they are being found with current exp dates,btw

I sware I would pay up to 20 bucks for a vanilla one. I still see the chocolate ones occasionally but I have not seen a vanilla one since the 80's.

Found the chocolate ones at the Stewart's Shop in Schroon Lake Village. Thought they were extinct! I love Stewart's too btw, coffee & ice cream in one place that's not a DD!

They still carry the choc. in a few stores. I bought some at a travel plaza on the Penn Turnpike about 3 months ago - nearly flipped when I saw them. Hadn't had a hostess one since the late 80's! My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I came out to the car with 3 of them(bought them all!)! Took me almost 2 months to eat them for fear of never finding one again! Also ran into some at a gas station in Hedgesville, WV recently...resisted the urge to buy all they had given that I've seen them popping up now. I'm thinking it might have been Rocks like the other poster mentioned. Just as a side note...anyone looking for a CHOCOLATE PIE probably isn't too worried about the calories involved! No need to point out the obvious junk aspect of a chocolate pie! Happy Pie Hunting!

My brother and I ate up the vanilla pudding pies when we were kids. Then one day they just disappeared. Whenever I mention pudding pies and how good they were the most common reaction I get is "never heard of pudding pies." All I can say is you really missed out. These things were the best and who cares how many calories are in them. Live a little. Just don't eat 50 a day and I am sure you'll be fine.

I loved the vaniila pudding pies. i remember when they became teenage mutant ninja turtle pies, those were f***ing great. but now most companies r scared of creating something so unhealthy. they were best. havent seen them since the early 90's

Wow, this is crazy! I was thinking about pudding pies recently and how I'd give anything to have a vanilla pie. Recently, I walked into a 7-Eleven and saw the chocolate...I asked the manager where the vanilla pies were and he said they only got a few chocolate pies. I hate chocolate so I was extremely disappointed. After this occasion, I never saw them again. Please bring back the vanilla pies! I'm pregnant and now this is what I'm craving...come on wouldn't deny a pregnant woman, would you? :)

There seems to be a conspiricy against pudding prouducts in general, what ever happened to Jello pudding pops? There were also other companies that made Vanilla pudding pies in the 80's....

Yuck! Never like these.

I believe these came out in 1986. They have a youtube commercial with Joey Lawrence that says it's from 85 but I believe that date is incorrect.

The hostess vanilla pudding pie was the greatest snack ever. I remember as a kid only one convenience store carried them. I'd always annoy my mom for one. Then suddenly they disappeared. Clearly there are other people out there who shared in my disappointment. Hostess, why oh why did you stop making your greatest product? There is an entire generation who never experienced the greatness of vanilla pudding pie. You must bring it back.

I used to love the vanilla pie. I still get the chocolate, but I really miss the vanilla.

In the 80s I would get a vanilla pie and a vanilla New York seltzer I was very young at the time in michagan. I actually found a party store/gas station and Royal Oak that had New York seltzer's I bought all the flavors. Those pies on the other hand are gone just chocolate ones remain. I wish they would come back without transfat,and no animal product in them. Come on!

I remember how good these things used to be, the last time I had one though, it was like rubber on the inside. Ruined the memory

I am 45 now and still miss the vanilla pudding pie's It is funny how some things just stick in your memory
Terrance - January 25, 2018 - Report this comment
TOTALLY AGREE WITH DAVID, "I'll buy two boxes of them right now"!!! Growing up in Southwest Ohio during the 80's and 90's, you could get these at all IGA stores, and the "Wonder Bakery Outlets". Vanilla was DEFINITELY THE BEST!!!

The absolute best sweet snack. Chocolate covered pie crust, with vanilla pudding inside. Damn. My mom used to take me to the Hostess outlet to get them cheap, because I would go through them so quickly. If only they would bring them back.

I am almost 50 and I agree the the vanilla flavor pie was great! Wanted to share the experience with my kids, but nooo, can't find them... As for calories and content, who cares, they tasted awesome!!!
