Vintage Ad: Batman and Robin Sell Hostess Twinkies!

Anyone who read comic books in the 1970's or 80's will remember these great advertisements. They were done in a comic book-style to trick you into reading them, ha ha! They were full-page ads where some DC ( & Marvel too ) Superhero would fight crime using Hostess Cupcakes, Twinkies, or Fruit Pies. Apparently, if you throw a fruit pie at a bank robber the delicious snack is so irresistible that their brains just lock up!! If you want to read their adventure just click on the picture for a large photo...enjoy!

The artwork in these Hostess ads is pretty good. They've got that going for them!
