Seriously, who DOESN'T love a Twinkie? I perfer Zingers myself more but Twinkies still rock! Those familiar sponge cakes that brighten up any lunchbox or that snack on a boring afternoon.
Twinkies are those familiar little yellow cakes that look like horizontilly elongated gum drops with those familiar holes for the fill'in. As a kid I loved holding them sideways with the round part facing my mouth and biting off the whole top half of the thing so that most of the cream would be left for one big gulp cutting down on the cake to cream ratio.

I don't know a single person who doesn't love Twinkies, unless they're watching they're weight since, lets face it, Twinkies aren't known for their healthiness. BUT they are apparently something you can use to try all sorts of baking ideas with, like the Deep Fried Twinkie or if your a "Weird Al" fan, the infamous Twinkie Wiener Sandwich.

One of America's best known and most loved snack cakes, Twinkies have been tantalizing taste buds and filling lunch boxes since 1930. 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."
