Deep-fried Twinkies, a greasy delicacy usually exclusive to state fairs, are now being sold exclusively at Walmart. As Hostess's first frozen treat, these battered sponge cakes come in boxes of seven and crisp up in the oven in a few minutes. According to the Associated Press, "The cream-filled snack in vanilla or chocolate is the result of a yearlong collaboration between Hostess and Walmart, as both companies look to spark food sales with innovative products." Naturally, people have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions about this "innovative product."

Now that Deep-Fried Twinkies have moved from the fair to the freezer, there is even less exercise involved in getting them.

Between the Whopperitto, all of 2016, & fried twinkies, I think it is safe to say this is peak western civilization. Was a good run, folks.

Are you too intrigued not to try them, or are you straight-up horrified at this news?
