KANSAS CITY — For a limited time only, a trio of new flavors is joining the Hostess CupCakes lineup: Mint chocolate, strawberry and sea salt caramel. The new additions are part of Hostess Brands, L.L.C.’s Cupcake Craze program.

New Hostess Mint Chocolate CupCakes are frosted chocolate cakes with mint filling. Hostess Strawberry CupCakes feature a frosted strawberry cake with creamy filling, and Hostess Sea Salt Caramel CupCakes feature caramel-iced yellow cake, sea salt topping and a caramel filling.

“As the ultimate affordable indulgence, we can’t ignore the power of the cupcake — worthy of birthday celebrations and after-school snacks, or as the antidote for a mid-afternoon slump,” said Keith Peterfeso, Hostess Brands’ brand director for all day snacking. “Having earned the official title of ‘America’s #1 Cupcake’ through our market share leadership is just the icing on the cake, so to speak.”

Each of the new flavors comes in multipacks and is sold nationwide. The limited-time-only flavors join Hostess’ year-round offerings of Hostess Chocolate, Golden and Orange CupCakes.

I bought a box of your Mint Chocolate Cupcakes and ant them to my son in Ohio. I was sending him a goodie box because he had a tumor removed from his brain 3 weeks ago. He absolutely Loved them! His wife went to Walmart in their area but couldn't find the Mint Chocolate ones... He asked if I'd send him some more... Now, I can't find them! How can I get more to send to my son! He is a retired Airforceman. Please help me!
