Deep Fried Twinkies on Sale at Walmart

Forget the country fair. You can get your deep fried Twinkie fix at Walmart.   Starting August 16th, the funnel-caked covered fried version of everyone’s favorite cream-stuffed cakes will be available

The deep-fried Twinkies come in two flavors: original golden and chocolate. There are seven deep-fried cakes in a box and they can be found in the freezer section.

John Pearson, senior buyer for frozen foods for Walmart U.S., explained that Walmart   co-designed the deep fried Twinkies with Hostess and that they’ “are so good they’re worth the calories.”  Why do the frozen Twinkies work? “I talked about the way this product appeals to everyone: from the Boomers who have fond memories of Twinkies as children, to millennials craving a cool midnight snack,” he explained.

Last month, Hostess launched Key Slime Twinkies in conjunction with the new “Ghostbusters” movie. They weren’t all that popular but we have a feeling these might be different.
