The Olympics has had me on edge since its start this week. The US athletes are doing a great job and I wish them well.

I was not paid or compensated in any form for my review of Hostess Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes. These views are authentic and or based on my experience with a new version of my favorite snack.
Hostess cupcakes were on sale for $2.50, so I thought it was the perfect time to give the New Hostess Strawberry cupcakes a try.
The cupcakes appear to look the same as I removed them from the box. They were both in the same packaging and had the same swirly design across the center.
I took a bite of the Hostess chocolate cupcake and it was very tasteful. It was perfect.
After taking a bite of the Hostess strawberry cupcake I didn't have the same pleasure. The strawberry cupcake is too sweet and too moist. The strawberry flavor is too overpowering in this small cupcake. It is safe to say that I will never purchase the Hostess strawberry cupcake again. I can't even get my kids to finish the box. So it is safe to say that I will be sticking with the chocolate version of this cupcake in the future.

I went to Wal-Mart searching for the supplies that I ask my students to donate to school every year. Due to our economy we ask parents to donate some of the items we use in the classroom to off set our supply budgets. I wanted check prices to determine the best place to get the items. I've seen some additional sales other places, but Wal-Mart had the best prices for the most items in one place. Don't forget you can also take ads from others stores to compare prices. I listed the prices for Crayola and Rose Arts products, but when I buy supplies I prefer Crayola products. I ask my parents to spend no more than $20 for items donated to the class.
