What's better than regular Twinkies? Chocolate Twinkies.
What's better than Chocolate Twinkies? Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies!
On April 26, Hostess thrilled the Twinkie-loving world by unveiling Chocolate Twinkies, which replace the signature golden sponge cake with a moist chocolate cake.
Simple, yet groundbreaking.
Now, Hostess is getting even wilder and replacing Twinkies' standard creme filling too.
And it's replacing it with what many people believe to be the best filling ever invented. Peanut butter.
That's right, folks. Chocolate Twinkie cake on the outside, creamy peanut butter filling on the inside.
Sounds like a match made in packaged snack-cake heaven, am I right? Check them out.
“With chocolate peanut butter Twinkies, we have paired America’s favorite flavor combination with America’s most beloved snack cake,” Hostess Brands Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Burke Raine said, according to Business Wire.
The new Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies are currently being distributed to stores and can be purchased in single-serve packs or in multi-pack boxes, according to Brand Eating.
I think we’ll be going with the multi-pack box, for this one.
“This peanut butter-filled treat comes on the heels of our recent introduction of Hostess chocolate cake Twinkies and is another a prime example of our efforts to embrace consumer flavor trends,” Raine said.
If only Hostess would conduct a flavor referendum like Nabisco did with its Oreo flavors, then we'd be all set.
And there are oh-so-many flavor combinations that could work here.
Chocolate cake with mint filling? Vanilla cake with peanut butter and jelly filling?
They could even do the reverse and have a peanut butter-flavored cake with chocolate filling.
The possibilities are truly endless. Just please, no pizza-flavored Twinkies.
My personal dream? For Hostess to partner with Nutella and unroll some hotfire Nutella-filled Twinkies.
What's your ideal Twinkies combo? Or are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies the peak of your Twinkies universe?
