Yuk, Disgusting, Unhealthy, but Wait!
When you were a child, did you love Twinkies? I did. Some of my lucky friends got them in their lunch boxes. Perhaps because my mother made cakes from “scratch,” we were rarely treated a tasty Twinkie. And, “oh boy!” Twinkies were a big treat.
Later, as a health conscious mom, I occasionally spoiled my children with Twinkies and my preferred chocolate Ding Dongs. My tastes evolved to See’s chocolate truffles and I hadn’t enjoyed a Twinkie for years and years. Last week, I saw a box in my daughter’s pantry and helped myself. The Twinkie was kinda of pasty tasting and not worth the calories.
But wait, now that Hostess may be going out of business, suddenly I want Twinkies! Don’t they look yummy? Not pasty…rather creamy and lush…? And, guess what, they are not raw fake food after all.
Don’t worry, be happy… you can bake your own Twinkies! Here’s a video with the ingedients as my grandson Finn says. (I asked Finn if he made something from scratch and he said, “No, from ingredients.”)
What will YOU do?
Stock up just in case, bake your own, or forget about Twinkies?
