Twinkies4 Five Ways to Get Your Twinkie Fix

Today, Hostess Brands announced that they are closing down their operations. It is sad to see an 82 year old company close their business. Their beloved Twinkie has received its share of criticism, but we think many will agree that the oblong yellow cake filled with sweet cream will be missed.  If you don’t have time to run out and get Twinkies at your local grocery and you don’t want to wait to see who buys the Twinkie assets, we’ve come up with 5 ways to get your Twinkie fix. There’s even an option for an organic/vegan Twinkie on our list. Enjoy!

Clockwise: Twinkie Bundt Cake, Pumpkin Twinkies, Airstream, Red Velvet Twinkies, Gold Chocolate Twinkies.

    The Twinkie is not dead! The Golden Sponge Cake with Delicious Creamed Filling will surely be reanimated, with the Hostess bankruptcy team working up a stalking-horse bid with two holding companies for $400+ million(!).

    At any rate my weblog http://bcbakes.blogspot.com/ carries Essays on the Natural Philosophy of Postmodern Twinkies, including my increasingly successful reformulations of a NOT-winkie that is actually food, not 70% additives as in the originals.
