Part of a balanced diet: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pudding Pies

“Fresh from the sewers to you!”

The Hostess Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pies featured a green glazed pie crust that was filled with Vanilla Puddin’ Power or mutagen goo as it’s referred to in the commercial (both sound pretty delicious to me). I would bet the majority of us never got to taste these (let’s say…delicious?) pies, as they were only around from 1990 to 1991 (that’s a pretty solid run).

I don’t know about you, but I would eat the hell out of those things. Apparently every wrapper included 1 “pudding point” which could be used to acquire mail in prizes which according to Wikipedia were:

1. a pack of two “Battle Signal Clickers” – metal clickers featuring Leonardo’s face and the “Turtles Pies” logo, along with instruction cards explaining a secret “Turtles Morse Code” for use with the clickers

2. A turtle shell belt buckle which could store items inside of it

3. A Painter’s style hat featuring all four turtles

4. A black Ninja Turtles t-shirt with a “puff-print” design

I could see myself still using all of those prizes in my day to day life right now.

But I think the cherry on top (or the puddin’ power inside if you will) has to be the commercial for these pies, in which the Ninja Turtles rap about how great the pies are by mentioning no less then three times how they are made “Fresh from the sewers to you!”. Enjoy.
