ok, this is getting ridiculas, but just try and stop me from stockpiling up on Chocwave and Snoballimus Prime treats! Want!
Question though, why can't the find a similarly colored treat for sentinel? Like, IDK, use red snowballs.

I don't ever buy treats like these. Not that I don't like them, they're delicious ... just gotta watch the waistline. But you know what? I'll use this as an excuse to have a box in the cupboard. You know, to "review" these for Seibertron.com. Right? :D

Wow this was just unforeseeable! :shock: I would have expected gummies or even a cereal! How about a tasty cereal that tastes like fruit loops or trix, or allspark oats with marshmallow :BOT: :CON: ? Mmmmm Cybertronian cereal... =P~ Maybe I too will buy one of each and open it in another 25 years to celebrate 50 years of Transformers... ;)^ :VEHI:

They probably won't sell these where I live, but I'd get some Chocwaves, probably not the Snoballmuses because of the coconut which...I'm not a fan of. <=I

Oh yeah...we never had Transformers cereal have we (The canceled G1 cereal doesn't count <;I)? jeez if the movie line couldn't make that happen then I don't think we're getting it anytime soon. :-( I'd totally buy a few boxes of your idea though, it sounds ace. ;)

"Chocwave" is a pretty funny-yet-clever pun, however "Snowballimus" isn't really all that great. Wonder if they taste like Energon? 8-} :lol:

"Chocwave" is just awesome. "Snowballimus" not so much. Too bad they didn't continue the trend with the Twinkies and Cup Cakes... a shame there isn't a Kup.

I have a feeling I'll be eating a lot of Chockwaves.

Really should have thought about the name chocwave before releasing this stuff. It's childish to laugh at it but shock->choc still sounds like cock.

But I'm guessing the dude who thought of the name is snickering in his lab coat and pushing his glasses up.

It's a sad day when a company can't use "choc" to describe their chocolate products without people making up the idea that it sounds crude.

Can we have a sightings feature on these? :)

I honestly went out to Target and a market to look for these. I can only find the Twinkies box with Bumblebee. No Chocowave or Snoballimus.

Ugh. The coloured ones look about as gross as that Bumblebee candybar with the virulent yellow interior they used to sell. I just hope that the red and blue dyes on those snowballs don't go straight through you. Not a good pair of colours to combine inside one's self...

I do like the Twinkies. The yellow in them looks unaltered this time and Bumblebee, who strikes me as kind of a Twinkie himself as Autobots go, seems the perfect choice to be their spokesbot.

As for Sentinel Prime and CupCakes...seriously, what the hell?? Does someone in charge at Hostess get off on Sentinel and think he's a cupcake? Are all the CupCake cupcakes injected with a dose of E. coli so you can experience your own little treacherous 'surprise' a day or two after eating them?

BeastProwl: Ref. THOSE cupcakes...aahhhhhhhhhh! Oh gawd, I didn't even know these things existed! I actually just used google to confirm it, to reassure myself that the picture wasn't just photoshopped. And no, this is NOT something 'for Sentinel'. Cupcakes are something Megatron ought to be selling because Megatron is cute-proof and can be associated with anything, even disgusting pink strawberry-flavoured confections, without losing his dignity. Sentinel IMO is really only fit to flog something like nasty old-fashioned black licorice candy, the sort that smells funky and weird and like chewing tobacco.

Also, as per someone else's request, I'll try to keep an eye out for any of these Hostess 'special editions' and will report any sightings. Bet I find 'em at Zellers...
