Twinkie Sushi

Hi folks,

Do you have plain old twinkies lying around and the kiddies or the husband just wont eat them anymore? Cue the sound of kids moaning, "ahhgh, twinkies are just not hip anymore" (as if kids today use the word "hip"). Well then, run--don't walk--to the kitchen and ask your mom (as if mom is conveniently in the kitchen, think Joan Allen in Pleasantville) to help you turn those dusty old Twinkies into TWINKIE SUSHI! Now if your mom is challenged in the kitchen, or lacks creativity, or is just ambivalent about presentation, the good folks at Hostess have written this recipe and many more here: http://www.hostesscakes.com/recipe_view12.htm

"Hey ma, will you pass the wasabi?"

Related note: Best line in a film referring to the Hostess Twinkie goes to Nick Reve (Steve Buscemi) to Chad Palomino (James LeGros) in Tom DiCillo's film about filmmaking Living in Oblivion (1995): "You Hostess Twinkie mother f*****...."

DO IT NOW and ENJOY! NC

I've MADE Twinkie Sushi...it just goes to show that I will do anything for a photo. They taste incredibly strange. Kids love them!

Uh. I think they may have crossed a line with this. I will eat almost anything with refined sugar but no dice on the Twinkie Sushi.
