    You mean the Banana, the Strawberry, and the Chocolate fillings?
    Hope so…I even remember Chocolate filled Twinkies made with Chocolate Cake, and frosted with Fudge!
    And yes, they were TWINKIES, not some off-brand copies!

    Heresy! A Twinkie’s a Twinkie, dammit! Golden, firm sponge cake with a sweet creamy filling.
    Seemingly reminiscent of…no, let’s not go there…

    Actually, the Original Twinkies had the Banana filling. The “Creamy” filling came later.
    Here you go…

    Twinkies were invented in River Forest, Illinois on April 6, 1930 by James Alexander Dewar, a baker for the Continental Baking Company.4 Realizing that several machines used to make cream-filled strawberry shortcake sat idle when strawberries were out of season, Dewar conceived a snack cake filled with banana cream, which he dubbed the Twinkie.5 He said he came up with the name when he saw a billboard in St. Louis for “Twinkle Toe Shoes”.6 During World War II, bananas were rationed and the company was forced to switch to vanilla cream. This change proved popular, and banana-cream Twinkies were not widely re-introduced. The original flavor was occasionally found in limited-time promotions, but the company used vanilla cream for most Twinkies.7 In 1988, Fruit and Cream Twinkies were introduced with a strawberry filling swirled into the cream. The product was soon dropped.8 Vanilla’s dominance over banana flavoring would be challenged in 2005, following a month-long promotion of the movie King Kong. Hostess saw its Twinkie sales rise 20 percent during the promotion, and in 2007 restored the banana-cream Twinkie to its snack lineup.9

    As a kid, we purchase Twinkies on our biweekly trips to the day-old bread store. Four cents a package and you couldn’t tell the difference from “fresh”.

    Heck, any Twinkie under a year old is considered “Fresh”!!

    Actually, nobody actually questioned the actual orginal filling, actually. Actually most everybody actually knows actually that banana flavor actually was the original filling, actually. And I dont even like twinkes (I like Ding Dongs, Ho-Hos).

    Good for Twinkie fans, but what about Ding Dongs & Ho-Hos? Are they coming back?

    Well as Verne will say there goes the forest.
    And Hammy. He just loves parades. The scout will recover.
    Hey, Hammy got that hat from somewhere.

    Just look around.
    Down on Harry Hines Blvd in Dallas you can see lots of Ding Dongs and Ho Hos. The Ding Dongs drive around in jazzy cars and Ho Hos wait on the corners for them.
    OHHHHHH!!!! Talking about Hostess products. My bad. Drifted off for a minute.
