HOSTESS: Pranks Fans With New Twinkie Flavor


It looks like Hostess played a huge prank on fans this week, and some of them were not down with it at all.

Earlier this week Hostess tweeted out a picture of what appeared to be a new Twinkies flavor – “Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich” – which included the classic Twinkie sponge cake with “peanut butter pickle filling.” They added the caption, “Only the real ones know about these #Twinkies #PeanutButter #Pickles.”

Well, as you can imagine the flavor did not sit right with most folks. “That’s disgusting,” one person commented, while another added, “Just because you can stuff things into other things doesn’t mean it’s always a good idea.”

But it turn out the new Twinkie flavor doesn’t exist, and won’t be coming to store shelves. “The Twitter post from earlier this week is just some social media levity from Hostess,” a spokesperson tells “Us Weekly,” confirming it was a joke. “We regularly feature fun, fictional products on our social media, and this is one of those.”
