This star of confections will soon be gone forever!
What is this world coming to? But not to worry,stop crying! Here is an old recipe clone from the 70;s. I finally found it in my BANANA FILE! LOL! Hand written from a lady I met at church, years ago..On the news today boxes of Twinkies are selling at $15.00 dollars.! People are buying by the car loads! Rumor has it they last forever.
Twinkies for some reason, have become the epitome of "junk food" to the consumer. Now with this recipe you could make a preservative free version of this favorite desert. The world is saved!! LOL!!
