Pumpkin Spice Twinkies

There are few junk foods less pretentious than the Twinkie. There are few junk foods more pretentious than pumpkin spice flavor. When I found out that they’d combined the two into a limited edition Pumpkin Spice Twinkie I just had to try the fancy bastard.

So how does the tarted-up Twinkie taste? About like I was afraid it would. My reaction to the combination was essentially the same as my reaction to the limited edition Oreos I’ve sampled: It was totally fine and all but it really just made me wish I had either a good old fashioned, regular Twinkie or a piece of actual pumpkin pie. The Pumpkin Spice Twinkie taunts you, man. Every bite is a reminder that you aren’t eating either real thing. This Twinkie’s not just a show off, it’s a jerk! It’s also a little heavy on the cinnamon.
