HOSTESS Classic Wheat = Diet Food

There’s a Walgreen’s store a block away from us. I needed bread and didn’t want to walk all the way to the grocery and knew Walgreen’s sold something that looked like bread.  I stopped buying Hostess decades ago and didn’t even know they made bread. Well, this is pretty good for a light sandwich, which is what I want these days. Most similar breads contain about 110 calories per slice. With Hostess I get 2 slices for 140 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat.

Welcome to my home Hostess.

Contains No Animal Products

Yes, this qualifies as a diet food on AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET.
