John Curley's mom-in-law mourns the loss of Hostess' Sno Ball

John Curley's mother-in-law was devastated to learn that Hostess was shutting down.

It's not just a food, it's a sentimental feeling that she gets every time she sees a Sno Ball, Carol told Ron & Don on Friday.

Carol saw tears in the grocery store isles, not from children demanding the treats, but from adults who found themselves letting ago of a piece of childhood.
