My cousin had a holographic Leonardo in September of 1991. In October of ‘91, I believe these were gone from grocery stores, bodegas, and delis.
Good theories for sure! The TMNT craze did settle down in 1992-1993.

But the truth is, Hostess only planned to release these for 20 weeks beginning in February of 1991. Some bakeries kept producing them due to the crazy high sales they generated. And while they did plan to include the holograms with the pies, they never actually did it. Instead, the holograms were packaged with Hostess Brownie Bites and then the rest were sold to vending machines. It seems that the cardboard backing of the holograms wouldn’t have worked with the pie icing. That’s why the other two sets of pie premiums were rubbery/plastic. Icing and grease wouldn’t ruin them.
