Twinkies are the stuff of legends—President Clinton put one in a time capsule—and have achieved the status of cultural icon, with the American Society of Media Photographers recently mounting a photo exhibition featuring Twinkies. But to most people, they're just fun to eat.

Whether we're carrying a supply in the glove compartment for a quick on-the-road snack, freezing them, deep-frying them, or eating them right out of the package, millions of Twinkie lovers would agree with creator Jimmy Dewar's statement: "Twinkies was the best darn-tootin' idea I ever had."
