I was joking. Of course I know who they are.
Their twinkies taste like SH_T. Never liked them, or any of their other crap.

Aniduck ma'am I will NOT be making any Twinkies anytime soon even if homemade - I don't even want to see a bakery made creamy roll if it will remind me of a Twinkie. I hate Twinkies...can't stand to even see them. They don't rot or go bad...ever. Awful.

I won't miss Twinkies for sure. I remember seeing other kids having them in their lunch boxes and I was jealous! LOL! I swapped my homemade cookies for one of those; gaaawwwwd!

And, in case you just can't live without Twinkies, you can make them yourself...

This recipe is off a vegan website so go ahead and use butter instead of margarine if you like.

The biggest difference between these and regular Twinkies® is that these taste good.

Step One. Get one of these...

ry
-Recipe-Booklet/dp/B00A9T943Q/ref=srR>_1_fed0_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=

+twink
ies+bake+set


Can you believe the price??
Ebay has one right now for less than half that price but still...I think the price is going up because now it's a collector's item. sheeeeese!

Yes, it's the Hostess® Twinkies® Bake Set, complete with baking pan, icing injector, spatula, and cowboy-style Twinkies® Container! If you can't find an actual Hostess® set, do a Google search for "cream canoe baking set" and you'll find many brands to choose from.

Step Two. Throw out the icing injector because it's a cheap piece of junk that will break if you attempt to actually use it. Get yourself a pastry bag fitted with a large star or round tip instead.

Step Three. Preheat oven to 350º. Make the batter for Fluffy White Cupcakes. Spray the baking pan with nonstick spray and fill the cups just under halfway full (about 1/4 cup). Bake for 15 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean.

Step Four. Let the cakes cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn them out (running a thin plastic spatula along the sides helps release the cakes) and set them on a wire rack. Let them cool completely before filling.

Step Five. Make Cream Filling:

1/4 cup non-hydrogenated shortening
1/4 cup non-hydrogenated margarine
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 TB barley malt powder (gives the filling a sweet, marshmallowy taste; not to be confused with malted milk powder)

Beat together the shortening and margarine with a handheld beater or stand mixer. Add the powdered sugar and beat until completely light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and malt powder and beat for another 2 minutes.

Fill the pastry bag and poke and squeeze out about one tablespoon into three locations in the underside of each cake.

This will make about 16 Vegan Twinkies® with Cream Filling, but do us adults a favor and fill some with puréed organic strawberry jam instead. Or dip them in chocolate icing and make Australian Lamingtons.

Oops, I forgot to include the recipe for the...
remember, this is off a vegan website so use whatever milk you like. (Soy=NO)

Fluffy White Cupcakes

These are perfection: fantastic, light, fluffy cupcakes. They are just right for birthdays, classroom parties, or other special occasions. You can even add some sprinkles to the batter for a colorful confetti cupcake.

makes 22 cupcakes

1 TB apple cider vinegar
1 ½ scant cups plain soymilk
2 1/8 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. kosher salt
1 1/8 cups sugar
½ cup oil
1 ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. coconut extract

Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray 22 muffin cups with nonstick spray or line with paper cupcake liners (I like to spray the inside of the muffin papers with nonstick spray to help the cupcakes release). Set aside.

Place the apple cider vinegar in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup and fill the cup with soymilk to equal 1 ½ cups. Stir well and set aside (the mixture will curdle).

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl whisk together the soymilk mixture, canola oil, vanilla, and coconut extract. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and beat until smooth using a hand-held mixer, stopping once to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Fill each muffin cup with ¼ cup of batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.

Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes, then remove cupcakes from the pan and place on a wire rack. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Known for making Twinkies and other sugary snacks....but they make other things like bread and stuffs. Big, huge, very long time corporations based here in the states. This company made the Twinkie a part of Americana.

And these are those god awful pics of Twinkies...

I don't like to see any American business go belly up. (Was that a pun?) I chose not to eat that junk though.

OK so Hostess is going down the drain and though it is sad for the workers losing their jobs, I'm glad to see that company go kaput (they will be back as something else as all big corporations do), but everything they make has HFCS aka LEGALIZED POISON in it. Everything including their Twinkies. I avoid it like the plague.

Again, I do feel bad because of the loss of jobs and I am a hardcore blue dog for the American worker, but that company's products (as well as others Little Debbie, Drake's, etc.) is killing America and should be out of business.

From a health perspective is anybody NOT happy to see Hostess go as I am? Anybody happy to see it rot?
