Iced Lemon Hostess Cupcakes Are Here, Just in Time to Bring on Spring

Spring starts TODAY if you have this box of Hostess.

The highlight of our week so far was when Mint Chocolate Hostess Cupcakes suddenly appeared in stores—but there’s even more to look forward to already. If you’re dreaming of soaking up the sun on a beautiful spring or summer day, then you can get a head start with the latest Hostess treat. Hostess Iced Lemon Cupcakes have been spotted on grocery store shelves!

Hostess has rocked fantastic seasonal flavors before, like Iced Pumpkin Cupcakes, so we have high hopes for the limited edition lemon cupcakes.

Is This a Lemon-Flavored Cupcake?

It looks that way! Hostess Iced Lemon Cupcakes are bright yellow and are sure to bring some zest to your day. The spongy lemon cake is topped with what looks like lemon icing. Of course, there’s a classic Hostess sweet cream filling, too. This means you’ll get a balance of tangy and zesty flavors with the sweet frosting.

If you want to kick things up a notch, try baking a lemon cupcake at home. You can add extra sweetness with Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes or bring some tang to your dessert with Lemon Cream Cupcakes.

Where Can I Find the Cupcakes?

@theimpulsivebuy posted a picture of the cupcakes on Instagram, saying that Iced Lemon Cupcakes have only been seen in Jewel-Osco so far. However, other limited edition Hostess cupcakes have always appeared at Walmart, so we’ll check there, too. Each pack includes eight individually wrapped cupcakes, so there’s plenty of zest to go around!
