Happy National Hostess Twinkie Day

Would it really surprise any of you to discover that I don’t like Twinkies? They were never in my grade school lunchbox. My hubby one year did make deep fried Twinkies for a party we were having, which quickly dissolved into a “What can we deep fry next” contest.

Do you think a Twinkie can survive a nuclear blast?

How Stuff Works did a little video and  article on the Twinkie, its history, its ingredients (ick!), how it is made, etc. How can the Twinkie have 39 ingedients!?! That is unnatural, which of course, is the heart of a twinkie — fake food. There’s even a book titled Twinkie, deconstructed that delves into how snack foods are really made.

Here’s hoping you celebrate the day by NOT eating a Twinkie. – Chef Ro
