Although we are a US based international snack reviewer and future provider, we know that American snacks are known and loved through out the world. In fact we intend to carry a full line of snacks from the United States as a part of our regular inventory. Last time our global snack blog examined a US based snack, we reviewed a Ken Griffey Jr Rookie candy bar that was only made available at the ballpark during his first year of play. To say that is a rare candy bar is an understatement! Today we are again reviewing a rare snack from the States, this time however it's a household name that has gained recent notoriety with the discontinuing of the this long time loved treat.
Chance are you've guessed by now we are taking a look at Hostess Twinkies. Although Hostess is no longer in business, we purchased a 10 pack box from the last batch of twinkles produced. We intended to do a full video review like we previously did for the Lays Do Us a Flavor reviews but with this delicious treat headlining in the news again we knew we had to get moving. In case you missed it, two companies created a joint venture to revive the Hostess brand later this year. That means our ultra rare US snack will be on shelves everywhere! So let's get this review out before we are just talking about normal groceries!
The reason we originally purchased Chocolate Filled Twinkies by Hostess is our 10 year old Director of Taste has never had one! As true snack connoisseurs we didn't want him to miss out on a pop culture snack icon. So if you've tried to locate a box of Twinkies in 2013 you may have found out that they are all expired. But Hostess Twinkies last forever, right? There are countless TV shows that have worked in to the plot highlighting the long lasting goodness this snack has to offer. We'll read on to see what we found!
