Twinkies Are Back!

Recommended Posts

My better half picked up a box at WalMart over the weekend. I'm not sure how much of my critique is psychological, but I found the sponge cake to be a lot drier than I remember; given the amount of preservatives and dough relaxers in Twinkies, I didn't even think dryness was possible. The filling also seemed a bit more fluid.

"Dark Blue ‘Moonberry’ Twinkies Land at Walmart"

Quote

...Brand new and available exclusively at Walmart for a limited time, Moonberry Twinkies are billed by the brand as featuring “a dark blue, night sky colored sponge cake with a fruity mystery ‘moonberry’ flavored creamy filling”...

The photo of the product on the box cover is enough to put me off Twinkies for the rest of my life. :blink: :(

"REVIEW: Hostess Limited Edition Wintermint Ding Dongs and Mint Chocolate Twinkies"

Quote

When I first laid eyes on Wintermint Ding Dongs and Mint Chocolate Twinkies, in a nearly-untouched display at Walmart, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. Maybe it was Thanksgiving looming around the corner or the sugar high I was pre-experiencing, but all I could think was how fortunate I am that someone somewhere started this snack food flavor arms race and I now have a legitimate excuse to eat Ding Dongs on a random Wednesday as a full grown adult. Thank you!

There are photos of the products, plus cutaways. I don't think I am brave enough to try either one. The Ding Dongs don't receive any love in this review.

Has anyone tried them?

I am (or was, when I could eat them) adamantly opposed to any Twinkies other than the traditional ones, and DingDongs overall. I don't care for a chocolate-mint combo except in Andes mints, and ice cream.

 


Don't ask. Eat it.

Not after *that* review!

 

What is it about people reviewing food (or movies, or books for that matter) that makes them sound so ..... oh I don't know how to describe it.  Like you're suddenly writing for Cook's Illustrated or something.  It's a *snack cake* 🤣
