Banana Cream Twinkies

On ABC's Nightline a couple of months back, they did a news story on an author (whose name escapes me at the moment) who wrote a book about the varied sources of origin for each of the many chemicals and food ingredients that make a Twinkie.

While that was interesting, I believe somewhere during or after that story, there was a bit about the return of the banana cream Twinkie, which was the original flavor before World War II. Well, maybe it was a different story on a different show.

Anyhow, I immediately (at the next reasonable opportunity) went to the local grocery store to buy the new-old Twinkies, but they weren't there...I guess Hostess didn't distribute them to my neck of the woods yet.

And now they are here (wherever I am), two months later. They taste...all they have that sort of generic fake banana taste. You know what I'm talking about. Anyway, it's good to have two choices of Twinkie (well, the third choice would be to not have a Twinkie at all).
