Hostess Chocolate Cake Twinkies with S’CREAM Filling

Sharing is caring!

Although Twinkies were never a favorite of mine growing up, they are truly iconic snack food. You could not count the times they are mentioned or eaten in the ’80s or even ’90s television shows. Hostess has came out with a new one so we decided to try the Hostess Chocolate Cake Twinkies with S’CREAM Filling.

Twinkies are truly part of pop culture folklore. Have you ever heard the story of how long they will last? I am sure you have seen that they can last a mere 10 or even 20 years without spoiling. While that may not simply be true, the fact is that Twinkie is ingrained in our culture.

Hostess Closed The Doors

We almost lost one of our culture’s most popular snack foods. Back in 2012 Hostess employees went on strike.  So what did Hostess do? They simply said they were closing the doors. Chaos ensued as people envisioned their favorite snacks no more!

I know I was upset. Fast forward a few years and all is well now since Hostess sold their brand to a new owner and now the Twinkies are flying out of the ovens.

What Are Twinkies?

The Original Twinkies are a soft and moist yellow or like they call it “Golden” sponge cake. It has a cream filling that is light and airy.

This new Hostess Chocolate Cake Twinkie is simply a chocolate cake Twinkie. It is the same soft and moist sponge cake. Hostess has filled the cake with what they call a “S’CREAM Filling.”

That is their play on the Halloween Holiday season. Around Halloween, every food company tries to cash in on the holiday trends. What does Hostess do? They come out with Hostess Chocolate Cake Twinkies with S’CREAM Filling!

Gone is the time when companies simply made food for you to enjoy. Now they have to market it towards a certain holiday or season.

My Thoughts on Hostess Twinkie with S’Cream Filling

Now back to the “S’CREAM Filling”, I honestly could not tell a difference between the original filling and this new “S’CREAM Filling.” To me, that is just a marketing ploy. Good job Hostess!

I have to be honest here, I love chocolate. So naturally, when I saw these on the shelf, I had to try them. As I mentioned above, I am not fond of the original Golden Cake Twinkies. To me, the original Twinkies tend to have a chemical aftertaste.

The Hostess Chocolate Cake version did not have that same aftertaste. These hit the nail on the head for me. Moist, soft, and spongy chocolate cake with a light and airy cream filling. I would give them 4 thumbs up.

How To Make Them Better

How can you improve you may ask? Well if it were me, I would add a chocolate coating on the outside because, in my opinion, you can never have too much chocolate.
