Hostess Twinkies, America’s favorite golden sponge cake with its oh-so-lovely crème filling, turns 84 on Sunday.
When Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy in 2012, there was plenty of concern about what would happen to the tasty treat. Luckily, Hostess found a financial lifeline, ensuring that Twinkies would remain a culinary staple.
In honor of this impressive milestone, HLN went into our vaults for a video rewind celebrating Twinkies' 50th birthday. A Boston, Massachusetts, baker created an enormous cake replica, complete with 50 lit candles.
If this was how they celebrated 50, we can only imagine what Twinkies will do for its centennial celebration.
