Hostess Ding Dongs - 1970

I'm very happy today to share this latest addition to my Hostess collection -- a Ding Dongs box from 1970!


I'm pretty certain that this is the very first edition box with King Ding Dong on it. He was introduced in 1970. Prior to that, the boxes had a big bell on them.


This box is really special to me. While I haven't made an official list, there's no doubt that this box would be in the Top 10 list of favorite items in my collection -- and just might be right at the top.


Thanks to my good friend Gregg for the opportunity to get this. :-)
