Hostess Brands Inc. has extended its roster of patriotic-themed treats to help consumers celebrate summer and Independence Day. The brand is relaunching a few past favorites, as well as introducing two new products.

“Hostess is an iconic American brand,” said Keith Peterfeso, brand director of all-day snacking for Hostess. “We are proud to celebrate summer and Americana by expanding our patriotic line of red, white and blue treats.”

Here are four Hostess products that celebrate the United States …

1. Strawberry Donettes
