One Man And His Twinkie

I’m English, in case you didn’t already know that.  Now, there are many American ‘delicacies’ that I have yet to taste the glory of, and the Twinkie is one of them.  Or at least it was.  A’Hottie has made it her mission to ensure that I eventually try all of these American delights that I have missed out on, and document the events.  So yesterday, after dropping off Murphy at his puppy-hotel because AH is taking the bar, it was time for the great Twinkie Experiment.  

My first shock, other than of course the knowledge that there is pretty much nothing natural about a Twinkie, was how moist it was out of the packet.  The same packet that it had been in for maybe the last few months.  That’s a little disturbing, no?  Then the first bite . . . let me just say that I’ve never witnessed the taste of such chemicals before – almost like eating pure, moist, chemicals.  Of course, during this time, AH had already taken 37 photos, it was like Twinkie Paparazzi.  The remainder of the Twinkie was eaten without a huge amount of protest – OK, there was a little whining, and a few tears, but she did join in the photo for the last bite, and tucked into her own ‘Golden Sponge Cake With Creamy Filling’.

The final disturbing aspect was that ‘one serving size’ according to the packet was both of the Twinkies.  Really, people, is this what we’re calling a serving these days?  Can you not just have one and be happy with the diarrhea likely to result from such a mistake?  I’m also happy to report that were, shockingly, no side-effects ‘down below’ of my own following this experiment.

And also, I refuse to confirm or deny whether or not I actually found the Twinkie to be tasty.  Nope.  No comment.  It’s “The Twinkie Defense”

(Oh, and this ad is just plain wrong):

  1. It just sounds dirty though, doesn’t it? “Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling…”
    And on that note, have you tried the King Dons yet? Deliciously chemical chocolate sponge with creamy filling and a mysterious coating that you would think is chocolate, but doesn’t actually qualify.

  2. Ooooh, no I haven’t! And is that their official tag-line – “Deliciously chemical chocolate sponge with creamy filling and a mysterious coating that you would think is chocolate, but doesn’t actually qualify”? I would eat them just for the brutally honest marketing.

  3. If only! That would be beyond awesome; can you picture soccer moms picking them out as an afterschool treat for the kiddles?
