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

    Yes the "Real McCoy" is truly the only way to go.
    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...

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

    That recipe sounds gross. I have a recipe for a Twinkie cake. It's pretty good. The real thing is decadently yummy.

    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!
