i find all american snack cakes bad. It's all about

However, i fucking love hostess fruit pies (and a few other brands, like little debbies fruit pies are ok and Drake's are as good as hostess) and i don't know why that never broke into canada. Like we don't have anything like that here. Once i found a hostess fruit pie in a gas station here actually and it was stale as fuck. It didn't have bilingual writings so i assume it wasn't meant to be sold here.

Some time in the early 2000's Hostess had a deal with Vachon and vachon started selling twinkies and Ding dongs but inexplicably, no fruit pies. That deal did not last. The products were soon retired because nobody bought them.

Only reason Little Debbie has managed to hold on to a market share in this province is because they sell for cheaper. There is no other brand outside of Vachon and Little Debbies. Every few years someone will try to break the market (last one i remember was Mrs Freshley's) and you'll see them for a few months and then never again.

The recent UK additions to this thread really make me glad I moved here rather than being raised here

My poor kids though

iced buns and space raiders are tight tbf, can't go wrong with them as a kid

i grew up on vegan health foods from those hippy shops that all smell the same and sometimes ordered from speciality places (no idea how since my parents were always broke, maybe that's why). i genuinely dreaded the day the hippy big lorry came down our street and i had to help unload all my future misery. i longed for broceries

then when my parents divorced my dad went hard the other way, eating basically nothing but meat while i scrounged for money at school to buy food because for some reason i just didn't get packed lunches or money. would have snatched up some damn broceries then as well. left me with some very bad eating habits, but he makes up for it by cooking me awesome food whenever i feel like turning up so whatever

"Oozing cross-section" appears to be a central theme of broceries.

As to why that may be, I withhold speculation.
