New Version Of Hostess Twinkies Is Deep-Fried, Frozen, And Reheated At Home

June 18, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Snack cakes maker Hostess rebounded from bankruptcy in 2012 with robust sales. But lately it has struggled to boost performance, even as it reformulated some of its products to include more healthful ingredients like whole grains while eliminating high fructose corn syrup. So its more health-conscious customers may be surprised to hear about its latest product: deep-fried Twinkies. The cream-filled snacks – they are battered and fried before being boxed – can be found exclusively in the frozen foods section at Walmart. Heating in the oven creates a crunchy exterior and a warm, gooey filling. The chocolate versions actually have less fat, cholesterol, and sodium than the original.
