punctuating a list of items with parenthetical dashes


I am attempting to write a sentence listing three things each with a qualifying parenthetical statement, but am not sure how to punctuate it. 


Would it be correct to punctuate the sentence thusly: "We were A-filler text, B-filler text, and C-filler text"? What are the rules regarding such a sentence?
