I actually found a recipe for homemade Twinkies and made then for Thanksgiving, shortly after the bad news hit.      Although I got a little bit of a laugh for the current event themed desert, it didn't really win any awards for taste/texture.     I won't be making those again.

Based on the outpouring of nostalgia sparked by its demise,

Hostess is expecting a blockbuster return next month for Twinkies and other sugary treats, such as CupCakes and Donettes.

The company says the cakes will taste the same but that the boxes will now bare the tag line “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever.”

I know I'll probably get booed out, but man, fuck that. I'd rather eat my own toenail clippings.

 

And I'm truly saying this in complete disregard of the chemical oddity that they are - they just taste like a freak show to me. They always have. 

 

 

 

 

 

Now Nutty Buddys on the other hand....

Guess it's all subjective, but they taste completely fake and gross to me...don't get me wrong, I love me some fat and sugar, but not when it tastes the way Twinkies do.

Tried to post pictures of some favorite recent fatty goodnesses of mine, but the stupid boards wouldn't let me use "that image extension" even though all four were jpegs. So:

-Sticky Toffee Pudding

-Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
-Coffee Ice Cream
-Chocolate Caramel Cake

The only use I ever found for Twinkies was back in the late 80's...which I'm pretty sure I've mentioned around here before.

Anyone remember the "NEW" Coca-Cola? 

 

People were stockpiling the "Classic", and shortly after it was back to stay... bigger than ever.

A friend gave us a package of Twinkies at Christmas in 2012.  I just found them on the shelf in my bedroom and they were moldy.........EEEEEEEEEEEEEEW!

 

In the garbage they went.  I thought they would stay 'fresh' forever because they are mostly crap?  I was wrong :(

Yes the rumors that Twinkie's have the shelf life of a brick are not true... it's actually 25 days tops.
