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.
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.
