Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes - Aren't They Supposed To Last Forever?
Hostess is in bankruptcy and may be shutting down as several of their factories lay idle with a workers’ strike. Which would mean the end of Hostess Cupcakes, Twinkies and Funny Bones. Don’t remember Funny Bones? They are a now obscure - but still existent - Hostess treat . Essentially a chocolate Twinkie with peanut butter inside, they were a lunch box favorite in the late ‘60’s and throughout the 70’s.
Everyone of a certain age has a fond memory of a Twinkie or a Hostess cupcake. What will the world be without that infamous squiggle? If you’re as disappointed as I am, here’s how we can turn this one into good news: You can make a reasonable facsimile at home!
Just in case.
