You Can Now Make Deep-Fried Twinkes at Home

You no longer need to wait for your state fair to come around in order to chow down on a deep-fried twinkie.

Hostess Brands, the creator of such classic treats as Ho Hos, is launching packaged "Deep Fried Twinkies," an item is now for sale at various Wal-marts around the country.

The cream-filled snack is available in vanilla or chocolate and is the result of a year-long collaboration between Hostess and Wal-Mart, as both companies look to spike food sales with innovative products.

Battered and partially fried before being frozen, these Twinkies can be made in a oven, toaster oven or frying pan.

They cost $4.76 for a box of seven.

It has a "retro cool factor," says Ellen Copaken, Hostess’ vice president of marketing. "It plays into the comfort food trend. And it’s fun."


It also may kill you in a matter of minutes, but hey!

We kid, of course, but we do hope people eat these treats in moderation.
