Don't eat the real thing, so don't think I'd want any fake ones either.

And here is a guy that clones the Real Twinkie, and tells you how to do it. Neat. And uses real food not the fake stuff that is in that vegie tofu one.

ummm... go through the recipe, purchase all the materials, assign some value to your time, and then compare that total (divided by yield) to what you pay for Twinkies off the shelf. Thank you, but if I have the uncontrollable urge to eat something with an infinite shelf life, I'll go get a Twinkie.

A Twinky doesn't have honest meat or dairy in it anyway <shakes head>... good grief.... craziness...

No but deep fried twinkies do.
Quote:
Twinkies might seem like enough of a treat, but this recipe calls for deep frying the cream-filled snack with batter and eating it like a popsicle.
Ingredients:
6 Twinkies
Popsicle sticks
4 cups vegetable oil
Flour for dusting
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
1. Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight.

2. Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.

3. Mix together milk, vinegar and oil.

4. In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt.

5. Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth. Refrigerate while oil heats.

6. Push stick into Twinkie lengthwise, leaving about 2 inches to use as a handle, dust with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake.

7. Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browning. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.

8. Remove Twinkie to paper towel and let drain. Remove stick and allow Twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

Twinkies are misnamed. They should be named Devil Snot or something more appropriate like that. Gross little cakes. Almost as nasty as Peeps.

Yes I buy a box now and then, not bad for a late night snack.

If I ate only vegans who eat only organic food could I say that I'm on an organic vegan diet?

Besides not trusting people who don't eat animals, I wouldn't touch soy with a 10 foot pole. Seems like these are just as bad as the ones you would eat from the store. Bleck.

When I was a kid twinkies were a real treat. My mom hardly ever bough them, and boy oh boy when she did, I was excited.

I know they are gross and have no expiration, etc. etc. etc. But if you are going to eat one or two a year, is it really a big deal? I had my first twinkie in years last week on vacation. Delicious!! Just how I remember them. But one was enough....

mmmm.... sort of like a portable, self-contained Monte Cristo sandwich. You know, I'll bet there's a market for that!

Think about it... you got your meat, you got your sweets, you got indefinite shelf life, wrapped so it's sanitary, and easily transportable.

I think you're right!
