Hostess Bringing Deep Fried Twinkies To Walmart's Freezer Aisle
There are few food options less nutritionally sound than those offered to consumers at the local carnival or state fair.
While I personally rank deep-fried butter served on a stick as the number one artery-clogging, heart-stopping “snack” food probably of all time, the deep-fried Twinkie comes in a close second. And soon, you won’t even have to drive to your respective state fair to indulge.
Thanks to a joint effort between Hostess and Walmart, the “decadent treat” will reportedly be available exclusively at Walmart, at least for one year, tweets Associated Press writer Anne D’Innocenzio.

The Post reported rumors of the potential innovation back in 2015, and now the concept is ready to launch.
The packaging, which states, “Enjoy Hot! Oven baked in minutes!” suggests that the snack food isn’t designed to sit in the pantry; instead, its a freezer-aisle item, meaning college kids across the nation are bound to be picking these up and tossing them in the microwave whenever the task of putting bread in the toaster becomes too much hassle.
