    Banana creme Twinkies. They briefly brought it back, but I can't find it anymore.

    Is this a joke ?
    That shit is disgusting.

    I hit the Farmers' Market every Saturday morning where there is a stand set up by a real bakery. I'm addicted to their cherry cream cheese turnovers.

    Hostess Honey Buns (with the convenient peel-off frosting) and Coffee Cakes were a frequent childhood breakfast. Then as a teenager I raised myself on Hostess Twinkies dipped in raspberry yogurt. $0.25 Little Debbie oatmeal pies got me through college.

    We're it not for my abnormal metabolism, I'd be a blimp now I'm sure.

    I had to sample these things while in the US, I don't get the appeal, they all taste over sugared and kinda I don't know, unloved maybe?

    gimme real stuff, thats been made, by hand, by people, they enjoy the process and love the outcome, it makes everything taste better.

    Changing my diet has changed the way I feel about these things. I get a craving for something, but the actual taste doesn't measure up to how I thought it would taste. The treat aspect falls flat.

    Ask me a few years ago and I would have said anything that didn't have coconut on it.

    I believe some researchers at MIT did some experiments a while back. Shelf life of a Twinkie was 17 years, if I remember correctly. If that gives you any idea of what that "unloved" sensation is made of. You might as well dip an old ear of corn in a vat of TX crude. Pretty much the same stuff.

    Oh that just sounds fabulous icon_eek.gif who on earth would want to eat a twinky that's 17 years old *shudders* You'd think food would decompose by then.

    I wonder what they put in it

    http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/twinkie1.htm

    Monoglycerides and diglycerides, which replace eggs in the Twinkie recipe, are chemicals that act as emulsifiers. They stabilize the cake batter, enhance flavor and extend shelf life. A very small amount of egg is used to leaven the cake. Polysorbate 60 serves a similar function to the glycerides, keeping the cream filling creamy without the use of real fat. Hydrogenated shortening replaces butter, giving the cake some of its texture and flavor and prolonging shelf life.

    Taste tests by flavor experts have revealed that artificial butter flavoring is used in the cake and artificial vanilla flavoring goes into the cream filling [source: Ettlinger]. Both flavorings are chemicals derived from petroleum.

    Despite the Twinkie's reputation, only one ingredient is an actual preservative: sorbic acid. Other ingredients have preservative functions, but sorbic acid has one primary purpose -- it stops the formation of mold [source: Ettlinger].

    Finally, cellulose gum replaces fat in the filling. This ingredient can absorb 15 to 20 times its own weight in water. It keeps the filling smooth and creamy.

    Once all these ingredients have been mixed, they are poured into metal pans with Twinkie-shaped molds. The batter is baked at 350 degrees F for nine to 12 minutes [source: Ettlinger]. The bottom of the mold is rounded, and the batter at the top of the mold is browned by the baking process. After cooling, the cakes are released from the trays and turned upside down. The familiar round top of a Twinkie is actually the bottom when it's made.

    Automated machines carry the Twinkies to a series of cream-filling injectors. Three injectors simultaneously pierce the bottom of the cake, filling it with three "globs" of filling. If you look at the bottom of a Twinkie, you can usually see where the filling was injected.

    From there, machines wrap the Twinkies in airtight plastic packaging. They might be wrapped individually or in pairs, depending on how they will ultimately be sold. Then the wrapped Twinkies are packed into boxes, which are packed into larger boxes, which are loaded onto trucks for delivery to stores across the United States.

    I have never heard of a Drake cake. However, my sibs and I tried Tasty Kakes once (my dad is from the northeast) and hated them.

    Corn and petroleum by-products. Gotta use 'em to keep those suppliers making money. Now doesn't that taste like love? ;-)

    I also like Hostess Apple Pie. The glaze coating just makes it so much better.

    And I don't remember if Hostess makes this.. But I think they're called Dunkin Sticks or something. It's a plain cake kinda in the shape of Twinkies, but it's got a thick layer of glaze. Like it's been dipped in glaze 10 times. Tastes so good with plain black coffee. icon_lol.gif
