A Hostess CupCake is a popular brand of snack cake in the United States, produced by Hostess Brands. These cupcakes are well-known for their distinctive design and taste. Each cupcake is a small, round, chocolate cake that is filled with a creamy white center. The top of the cupcake is frosted with a layer of chocolate icing and adorned with a white squiggly line, known as the “swoop.”

Hostess CupCakes were first sold in 1919, making them one of the earliest snack cakes introduced by Hostess. They became iconic in American snack food culture, often enjoyed as a treat in lunchboxes or as a quick snack. Hostess CupCakes, along with other products like Twinkies and Ding Dongs, have enjoyed a lasting popularity and are recognizable for their taste, convenience, and nostalgic appeal.
