Happy Birthday Twinkies

Today is the 75th year of the Twinkie. Oh the fond memories they bring back.

What are Twinkies? Sweets or biscuits, by the sound of them!

Twinkies are a sponge cake filled with a cream filling. They are made by the Hostess company.

75 years, WOW! I bet there are probably some lying around from the first production and that they are still edible LOL

75 years old and still edible! I think I have some that old in my pantry.

As the saying goes, at the end of the world the only things left will be cockroaches and twinkies.
