Then, Hostess temporarily died and even when it was resurrected, which I said would happen from Day 1, I wasn't sure if the Ho-Ho would make the comeback! In the meantime, I tried Lil Debbie brand and Great Value (Walmart) brand Swiss Rolls. We were using these other brands before the death of Hostess, mostly because of cost value. More on that below...read on....have you tried these other brands of the swiss roll? If so, which do you like best and why? Here is my review of our taste comparison...
Great Value (Walmart), 12 pack, twin wrapped, $1.38 a box
Lil Debbie, 12 pack, twin wrapped, $1.70 a box
Hostess, 10 pack, individually wrapped, $3.48 a box

Great Value (Walmart) brand tastes sweet and are obviously the best value for your money. Lil Debbie is the next best value for your money, and tastes ok, but not as sweet as those from Walmart! Hostess, has the most chocolaty taste of all even though it wasn't as sweet as the Great Value brand! So, in the end, I think I really do like the taste of the Hostess brand the best, however, I will NOT pay that price for it! Therefore, the Great Value brand from Walmart wins out and will continue to be our go to treat for a swiss roll/Ho-Ho style treat!
