APRIL 7, 2010
So recently when I saw a Malley's ad for chocolate-covered Twinkies I decided it was time to recapture the magic of my youth.
I bought a four-pack, gave three to the kids for Easter presents, and saved the last for a special occasion—like lunch today.
After eating my healthy sandwich I sliced my dessert in half to better appreciate the goodness. I took a bite and...
Disappointment. The chocolate overpowered its inner Twinkie. I couldn't taste much else. The cake and "creme" were bland, not the way I remembered them. Whether this is because my memory has amplified the flavor, or Twinkies have lost their tastiness over the years, I can't say. I can tell you that it'll be a lot more years before I buy another Twinkie.
Except, maybe, to make Twinkie Sushi.
