Twinkies A Kitchen Staple For Gourmets

BERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You might think Twinkies are junk food, but some people actually turn the creamy snack into gourmet meals.

For instance, there’s a new book, The Twinkie Cookbook (Ten Speed Press) that features recipes like “Twinkie Sushi.”

It sounds gross but the dish combines dried fruits, fruity candies, mangoes, and fruit leather with the Twinkie serving as the “rice.”

There are also “Twinkie Burritos,” which incorporate flour tortillas and strawberries, as well as “Twinkling Turkey” that sweetens a normal dinner right up by mixing Twinkies into the stuffing.

If these creations don’t sound appealing, the book also offers more traditional recipes like “Twinkie Strawberry Shortcake” and “Twinkie Eclairs.”
