3 Vegan Twinkie Recipes to Get You Through the Twinkiepocalypse

Hostess Brands Inc., the bankrupt manufacturer of Twinkies, HoHos, CupCakes and Honey Buns, has failed to come to an agreement with members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union which have been on strike since last week.

The brand had previously threatened to shut down operation and liquidate if workers did not return to work this week. True to its word, the Chicago Tribune reports Hostess is seeking court permission to go out of business.

“We’ll be selling the brands and as much of the infrastructure as we can,” said company spokesman Lance Ignon. “There is value in the brands.”

All orders have been cancelled with the company’s suppliers and any products in transit are being returned to the shipper.

Does this mean you should stockpile the Twinkies at the gas station to use as currency in the future?


Bake Your Own Twinkies

You would be better off cutting the cheap junk food from your diet altogether, and choosing healthier alternative to such snack “food” items.

Fortunately, there are also plenty of homemade, organic and vegan Twinkies recipe alternatives on the Internet to help you survive the Twinkiepocalypse.

The cake part reminds me of a sponge cake, which is so good!! I like the fluffy cream cheese idea for the filling....loving ginger as I do I'd prob add some minced fine candied ginger root to the cream filling. Sweet idea for kids/teens to make......
