Endtime for Twinkies doesn’t mean you can’t have your cake

Posted: November 17, 2012

The Endtime for Twinkies may have come to pass. And global gastronomes may have few opportunities to enjoy the curious treats that use the creme-filled snackcake as their foundation. But it's not too late to try Twinkie Tiramisu, that Southern-fried Twinkie or Twinkie Bread Pudding. (Yes, real recipes for those questionable delicacies exist on Food.com). Despite runs on the Hostess-brand snacks across the nation, plenty of Twinkies are still available. Of course, they come at a price. The folks who scooped up the snackcakes at the first news of Hostess's demise? A good many have put 'em up for sale on eBay. Early Friday evening, several hundred - if not thousands - of resellers had listed their boxes of Twinkies on the Internet auction site. Some bids started as low as 99 cents. Optimistic sellers expected to sell a carton of 10 for as much as $60. Not willing to part with that much cash? You can still have your Twinkie fix. Try cooking up your own Twinkies at home. Here's a copycat recipe that many folks seem to like: http://homecooking.about.com/od/cakerecipes/r/blc24.htm One more thing to consider: Hostess may go under. But Twinkies could live on forever if the brand is bought up by another baker.
