The Twinkies Cookbook

The Twinkies Cookbook

The chance to review this cookbook really excited me. I love a wacky ingredient and the kitsch factor of Twinkies pulled me in like a tractor beam.

I received my copy of the book and started to leaf through it, cackling with glee.

And then. Wah-wah-waaaah. (That was my attempt at a text version of the sad trombone sound effect.)

Hostess, you disappoint me. You just didn’t go there. Oh, you tried but it was a wasted effort. You had a real opportunity to produce a funny and audacious book but you missed the mark.

The graphic design was cute and appropriate to the brand. But the content was lacking.

I’ve Tried:

Absolutely nothing. Gack. There was only one recipe that I was even remotely tempted to make and, after tasting my first Twinkie in years, I decided it would be a waste of time and ingredients.
