Twinkie Trivia and Fun Facts

Can You Break Apart These Twinkie Facts?

Happy birthday, Hostess Twinkies! In case you weren't aware, the cream-filled golden sponge cake celebrated its 80th anniversary this week. It may be easy to overlook the nostalgic treat in an era where seasonal ingredients outshine frozen foods and macarons are considered superior to macaroons, but after learning about the item's storied past on Food Network's Unwrapped, I realized the Twinkie is truly an American snack food icon. What interesting facts do you know about it? Find out when you tear into this quiz!

T/F: The Twinkie originally had a banana filling.

I had one once and vomited shortly after. There is something in it that doesn't agree with my stomach.

I don't think they contain gelatin, just beef fat. Yuck. They actually use whatever is cheapest at the time, that's why the label gives 3 different types of fat along with and/or. They don't have a consistent quality.

5/10. Guessed on most of them (I knew about the banana filling). I haven't had one in over 5 years, they're not vegetarian. I've made my own vegan version at home though, 100 times better than the original. :)
