Twinkies are a pop culture icon, as well as a snack cake. They’re something that everyone can recognize, even if your mom never packed one of the cream filled sponge cakes in your lunchbox when you were a kid.
Are they true to the original Twinkie? I will be the first to admit that these are not meant to be clones of the snack cake. But they are based on the same idea as the original snack cake and they taste a whole lot better than “real” Twinkies do.
