Remember when Hostess went bankrupt last year and everyone mourned the death of the Twinkie? Never fear, chemical-loving, sugar-addicted citizens: Twinkies are back!
The former snack world giant, now under new management, has announced that July 15 marks the date of “the sweetest comeback in the history of ever.” In just a few short weeks, store shelves will once again be lined with America’s beloved Twinkies, CupCakes, and other Hostess treats. (*cue groans from the health community*)
We had really thought that the disappearance of at least a few notoriously over-processed snack foods was a step in the right direction, but it seems this country simply can’t survive without its sugar and fat fix. Luckily, there are a few healthier DIY versions that might make us stop turning our noses up at the mere concept of a Twinkie. Try these copycat recipes before you get trampled in the inevitable Twinkie stampede on July 15.
