Missing you already.

No need to say goodbye. If you have a working oven in your home, you can bake your own Twinkies. They're probably the easiest Hostess product to recreate in your own home. Much easier to recreate than Ho Hos. wink

But will you get the shelf life?

I doubt that would be of any concern in the chick-on's Chick-on is looking at you! household.

(My guess, each batch of homemade Twinkies would probably be devoured within a day or two. wink )

Oh, Twinkie with your golden hue,
You have delicious goop in you.
There you are! Were you waiting long,
Between Sno-balls and stale Ding Dong?

My friends all think I'm kinda kinky
Cause my role model is a twinkie.
But they don't know what we've been through.
Dear Twinkie, I can count on you.

I tell my troubles as I bite.
You never tell me, "That's not right."
You listen to each foolish fear,
Then slowly, deliciously disappear.

I hold you close when we're alone
And think the thoughts that are my own.
Then turn to you, my dear sweet yummie.
You clear my mind, tickle my tummie.


You can read the rest of the ode here.

There's still the Safeway select brand. Not the real thing, but under the circumstances: better than nothing.

But I feel your pain. Sad times.

You could aways go back to the ledge to eat this one you left there. It will keep. Most animals will not touch it,--well, maybe a drunk marmot.Marmot

You can always replace them with these



... ooops, maybe not.

Actually, there's already a good Twinikies replacement from south of the border available at Mexican supermarkets everywhere. Introducing Twinkies' south of the border distant cousin, Marinela's Submarinos:


(And this week, they're currently on sale (30% off) at a Mi Pueblo Supermarket near you! )

On the TV show, The Chew, they made Twinkies today. I am going to get the recipe off their website and try it.

Here's the recipe that Todd Wilbur used to make his Twinkies clones:

And here's the video he made demonstrating how to make a Twinkie clone:

I don't know..... from the Mexican pastries I've tried they are no where close to the sugar content as US snacks. That's probably a good thing, but if one has a sweet tooth, they won't work.

Mrs. Redd's are ok, but better than hostess? I don't agree. But they certainly are cheaper. You have to be really careful with Mrs. Redd's, check the date. Find the freshest one, if the date is close to expiring, the crust gets weird.

I used to eat them almost every day when I worked at Stater Bros. Supermarket.

And I had just "discovered" Hostess fruitcake this season. Bought a couple. Twinkies (and other Hostess products) were on sale at Vons at that time

Hostess fruit pie lovers don't need to fret, though, since there's been a better quality alternative to them for those of us living here in California, Nevada, or Arizona: Mrs. Redd's Fruit Pies.

Just like the classic Hostess Fruit pie, but only better!

Any of those "pies" that are less than 60% air has to be better.

I 2nd that on Mrs. Redd's, better than Hostess pies!

I've sang the praises of Mrs. R. on here before:

Mrs. Redd's Pies in more 'exotic' flavors

Found some safeway pies yesterday hiking around chick-on ranch area.
Guess Hostess doesn't make Safeway pies.

Haven't seen Ms. Redd yet. If you know a place in Bay Area. Speak up.

There are over one hundred enterprises vying for the brand and probably the production equipment. The whole line will be with us.

Mrs. Redd's also makes the private label Safeway pies. I'm not sure if they're the same exact recipes
as Mrs. Redd's pies, but if not, they're very close.
Mrs. Redd's comes in a few more 'exotic flavors like coconut and pineapple.
