gah! gaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

According to the Hostess website, Christopher Sell invented the "fried Twinkie" at the Chip Shop, his restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. It was described by the New York Times in this way: "Something magical occurs when the pastry hits the hot oil. The creamy white vegetable shortening filling liquefies, impregnating the sponge cake with its luscious vanilla flavor. . . The cake itself softens and warms, nearly melting, contrasting with the crisp, deep-fried crust in a buttery and suave way. The shop adds its own ruby-hued berry sauce, which provides a bit of tart sophistication." - wikipedia

Are you questioning the brilliance of the fried Twinkie? Next you'll be daring to insult the fried Oreo, Nature's finest creation. EVER.

i'm both horrified at the though of it and angry that i somehow managed to miss out on such what i imagine to be a delectable kickshaw that only the marriage British love of heart disease and American ingenuity could have created. Thank goodness for the gooey mixture that is globalization and the industrialized food industry.

s'funny, I offered to deep fry the twinkies for the flatties but no takers. Hm. I'm thinking deep fried s'mores next. God I'm brilliant. And in desperate need of a heart transplant. Also? Best tofu burger ever.

brenden. you are confused. one tofu burger is not going to save you from deep fried twinkies.

now you all need to adopt the zen of japanese cooking man. i'm going to live to a hundred!! with lung cancer.

but you know, global population is on the rise, so die!! with your heart failures! its whats best for the world.

but don't die, not yet, cuz i like both of you!
