Hostess Introduces Deep Fried Twinkies

Submitted by on August 13, 2016 – 11:22 amNo Comment

Long a favorite at county fairs, Deep Fried Twinkies are now an at-home treat. Maker Hostess, in conjunction with Walmart, has introduced a pre-fried version available in the frozen section.

The confection comes in both chocolate and traditional vanilla cream versions. They come pre-breaded and partially fried, and have to be finished in the oven, microwave, or frying pan. (Though I bet impatient smackers will learn to enjoy them straight out of the freezer, like a candy bar.)

For the first three months, you can find them only at Walmart.

Twinkies briefly went out of production in 2012 and 2013, after Hostsess went bankrupt following mismanagement and labor disputes. Private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co snatching up Twinkies along with several other snack cakes.
