TWINKIES CAPPUCCINOS Are Now Available At Select Stores

Last month, Hostess broke the frozen food aisle by introducing a line of Twinkie-flavored Ice Cream. Now that the nation has Twinkies on the mind, Hostess is taking them to the coffee industry.

In a partnership with Kerry Convenience, a service provider to convenience stores, the snack brand released a line of Twinkie-flavored cappuccinos. The beverage features a blend of creamy milk, sponge cake flavor, and a hint of coffee to encapsulate the Twinkie profile in a hot beverage.

You can find the Twinkie-flavored Cappuccinos now at the popular convenience store chain, Sheetz, at least for now. There will be plans to expand the beverage nationwide in the next couple weeks.

Hopefully we’ll get to try it out here in the West Coast. Could make for a sick Twinkie Ice Cream affogato.

This Twinkie May Be 40 Years Old But It Looks 20

In 1976, chemistry teacher Roger Bennatti of George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill, Maine, was lecturing on preservatives in food and shelf life when he decided to provide his students with an applicable life experiment. He had them purchase a Twinkie from the store, then placed it on top of the blackboard with the intentions of leaving it there until the end of the year.Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 12.15.27 PM

What started as a fun, interesting experiment has turned into the case study of a lifetime. The Twinkie was left atop the blackboard for that year, and every year to come after that. The aged pastry, now officially 40 years old, shows very few signs of deterioration other than a dry exterior and a bit of shrinkage. Libby Rosemeier, the current principal of the school, now holds the Twinkie in her office in a small glass display case.

According to ABC News, Rosemeier was happy to receive publicity for her tiny school, even if it was for a Twinkie and not academics or athletics.

“It’s really funny that we’re this wonderful coastal community in Maine, and we have this school of 325 kids that is a gem and we’re doing great things and kids are going to great colleges, and the thing people know about us is this 40-year-old Twinkie.”

The best part? Not only was Principal Rosemeier previously a student at George Stevens Academy, but she was also one of the students in that class in 1976! Clearly Bennatti’s lecture had a lasting effect on her.

I guess the only thing to do now is wait and see who will outlast the other, Rosemeier or the Twinkie? My money is on the Twinkie.

Skip The Fair, Deep-Fried Twinkies Are Now Being Sold In Stores

Twinkie-STK-Cover

What’s your favorite way to eat a Twinkie? Frozen? Straight out of the wrapping? How about deep fried?

Deep Fried Twinkies have been a popular fair food for years, but soon Twinkie lovers will be able to skip the fair altogether and enjoy the deep fried treat from the comfort of their own homes.

Hostess worked with Walmart to develop a prepackaged version of the fair food favorite. Before packaging, the original golden sponge cakes are dipped in funnel cake batter and flash fried.

Unlike regular Twinkies, which are ready to go from the package, the deep fried version will need to be popped in the oven for a few minutes before they are enjoyed. The treats are also supposed to be kept frozen prior to cooking.

The deep fried treat will be available exclusively at Walmart for the next year starting August 22.

Watch This Dude Smoke A Fat Bowl From A Twinkie In True Stoner Fashion

It’s 2016 and people are continually inventing creative and unconventional ways to smoke marijuana.

By now, any resourceful pothead can fashion a smoking utensil out of pretty much anything, a roll of toilet paper (sans the paper), an apple, or a regular coke can.

But, Tym Bussanich, the Facebook user who recently showed us how to convert a Cheeto into a pipe, is at it again.

Bussanich’s latest creation might be the most stoner-esque invention to date. Behold…

Twinkie pipe!!!

Posted by Tym Bussanich on Friday, February 12, 2016

Finally, a stoner invention that kills two birds with one stoned, no pun intended. Now, when your friends come over to smoke and ask, “where the munchies at,” you can actually say you smoked them.

These Guys Turned Pizza Into A Twinkie

Pizza-Twinkie

There’s an age old question that’s plagued the food world for as long as time itself: Will it Twinkie? The guys from Dudes N Space set out to educate themselves on whether things can be properly turned into a Twinkie.

Gifted with a Twinkie maker, these dudes set out to see if they can create a pizza-flavored Twinkie. Using pastry dough, pizza sauce and tons of mozzarella cheese, the ingredients are carefully added to the Twinkie machine.

What happens next answers the question of whether a pizza will Twinkie.

This Fair Vendor Is Charging $125 For A Twinkie

A photo posted by foodbeast (@foodbeast) on

A while back, everyone thought that Twinkies would be gone forever. Folks were mobbing grocery store shelves stocking up for themselves or gearing to sell them on eBay for a ridiculous amount. Then Hostess brought the Twinkie back and everyone calmed down.

For those who were already set on paying a ridiculous amount for a Twinkie, Chicken Charlie has the one for you. At the OC Fair this year, the fried-food stand will be serving a $125 Twinkie. What sets this Twinkie apart from all the others is that it will be topped with what they describe as “the finest caviar“.

You can find the $125 Twinkie at the Chicken Charlie booth at the OC Fair. The fair will be open from July 17 through August 16.

Yes, this is a Homemade Twinkie Machine

homemade-twinkie-machine

Last year, the internet nearly rioted when word got out that Twinkies were going extinct. A few months later, they were back and we couldn’t have been happier. Ignoring the fact that most of us have never actually eaten this indestructible cream-filled cake (seriously, they never die), here’s another reason to get excited about this timeless pastry: homemade Twinkie machines exist.

Imagine the endless possibilities, folks: Twinkies stuffed with creamy ganache or juicy bacon soaked in maple syrup or onion rings. Wait what? Ignore the last one, but seriously, this is the most impractical and useless gadget we’ve seen yet — and we want it.

This non-stick mold fits 6 Twinkie-shaped cakes and cranks them out within 7 minutes. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee they’ll last 36 years.
