Hostess Cupcakes & MoonPies Are In A Twitter War Over the Eclipse



Today is the day of the first total solar eclipse in 38 years.

While you’re huddling with friends and hopefully wearing protective glasses in order to witness the scientific phenomenon, what are you snacking on?

MoonPie and Hostess went head to head in a Twitter battle trying to win your loyalty during this historic event. Hostess began the dispute by declaring their Golden Cupcakes to be the “official snack cake of the eclipse.”

The iconic cupcakes with chocolate frosting and the well-known white swirl on top could very possibly be a nice treat for the eclipse, but MoonPie believed that Hostess was invading their territory given their name goes perfect with the event.

MoonPie quoted Hostess’ tweet with the caption “Lol ok.” which has gained over 78,000 retweets and is still gaining popularity.

Of course, Twitter users had something to say about it.

Probably best to have multiple snacks on hand for this occasion.

Favorite pastimes include-but are not limited to: binge watching celebrity interviews with Ellen DeGeneres on YouTube, reading cheesy romance novels and looking at the many pictures of photogenic bowls of mac and cheese on Instagram.
