Hostess has created a chocolate peanut butter Twinkie

Share

Hostess Brands, LLC is releasing a Twinkie with peanut butter crème filling inside a chocolate cake, according to the bakery company.

“With Chocolate Peanut Butter Twinkies, we have paired America’s favorite flavor combination with America’s most beloved snack cake,” Burke Raine, Hostess Brands senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said in a statement Tuesday, according to Business Wire.

“This peanut butter-filled treat comes on the heels of our recent introduction of Hostess Chocolate Cake Twinkies and is another prime example of our efforts to embrace consumer flavor trends.”

Business Wire on Tuesday reported that the new Twinkie flavor is starting to appear in stores now in single-serve and multi-pack formats.

Twitter users on Wednesday celebrated the product’s creation, with some voicing excitement over the treat.


Hostess Brands unveiled chocolate cake Twinkies last April, according to Brand Eating, with the product reportedly scoring high in “concept tests” and blind taste tests.

The new version replaced the original Twinkie’s golden sponge cake with a chocolate variety, all while keeping its white crème filling.

Hostess Brands also purportedly re-christened its Chocodile treat as the “fudge covered Twinkie” while modifying the product’s recipe.

The new fudge covered Twinkie comes in a larger size than its predecessor, while also boasting a wider crème-to-cake ratio.

The treat additionally sports a “better tasting” fudge coating than before and a more rounded shape.

Hostess offered both products in single-serve twin packs for a suggested price of $1.89 and multi-packs for a suggested cost of $3.99.

The chocolate cake Twinkies come 10 cakes in a box while the fudge covered variant arrives in boxes of nine cakes.
