It appears Hostess has now jumped aboard the pumpkin spice train, and we are thrilled about it!
According to Delish, this new pumpkin spice flavor is a bit different from the twinkies that debuted in 2015. This new flavor is pumpkin spice cheesecake. Just when I thought pumpkin spice couldn’t be made any better…
It features a sponge cake with cinnamon in the cheesecake-like cream filling, and then the whole twinkie itself is dipped in white fudge. Wouldn’t want to get it mixed up with the regular pumpkin spice kind!
As with all new foods, the new Twinkie flavor is receiving mixed reviews from social media users.
Chew Boom reports that this year’s fall lineup from Hostess includes Caramel Crunch Donettes and Caramel Apple CupCakes as well. Additionally, Hostess is reported to be bringing back some of its old classics, including GloBalls, ScaryCakes and Chocolate S’cream Twinkies.
It’s all seasonal of course, and limited edition, so don’t look forward to enjoying these items year-round. Unless you plan to stock up, of course.
You can find these new Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Twinkies, and the others at Kroger in 9-packs for $2.99.
