Funky Food Friday: Ding Dongs, King Dons or Big Wheels
(Image via the awesome Waffle Whiffler!)
Apparently, there was a similarly named product on the East Coast when Ding Dong came out, so they had to change the name there. (No word on why Big Wheels was used.)
The real question: Didn't they taste better when they were individually wrapped in foil? You know they did.
Also, ya gotta watch this bizarre commercial, which can only be from the 1970s. Note the commentor who writes: "King Ding-Dong is an evil bastard, selling his fellow Ding-Dongians as food."
