This weekend, while grocery shopping, I grabbed a box of chocolate Twinkies and, I gotta tell ya, they’re pretty amazing.  They combine the spongy texture of a regular Twinkie with the fudginess of a Hostess cupcake and a nice pop of whipped lard in the center, making a really solid snack cake experience.  Of course, I’m expecting it to be discontinued like my previous fave-raves the chocolate-frosted Honeybun, the raspberry Zinger and the Little Debbie Spice Cake, leading us to today’s sugar-frosted, cream-filled query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will still have Ho-Hos, though, as they’ll not only never get discontinued, they never go bad, asking: Which snack cake would be your go-to sweet treat?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Those little chocolate donuts you get in the vending machine.
    I don’t get them often, but I enjoy them when I get the chance.

    Little Debbie Coffee Cake. Like about 30 of them. But, since they are made of crap, I haven’t had one in over 10 years.
