Save The Twinkie

What does the Twinkie mean to you? (to me it equals nastiness) Well if you’re talk show host Wendy Williams it means a lot.

Hostess Brands, the company that produces the Twinkie, Wonder Bread and many other classic treats, filed for bankruptcy last month.

Williams has started an online campaign to prevent the perishing of the notoriously nonperishable spongy snack, which she calls a “golden symbol of the American dream” in her first pro-Twinkie PSA.

 

She has set up a Facebook page devoted to the cause and guests will receive gifts made out Twinkies and will be encouraged to share any stories they have about Hostess products.

Twinkie Sushi

While watching her show today, I didn’t know there are so many ways to eat this sweet snack…besides deep frying them. You can make a twinkie ice cream/smoothie concoction, tiramisu,  “sushi” and you can make an actually cake. If you’re watching your weight, the twinkie does come in an 100 calorie snack pack.  

While “researching” I found there is a cookbook as well…oh my! 🙂
