The Twinkie was invented on April 6, 1930 by bakery manager James Dewar, making thrifty use of shortcake pans that were used only during the strawberry season. Twinkies originally contained a banana cream filling, but this was replaced with a vanilla cream filling during a banana shortage, caused by World War II. The original flavor would be revisited more than half a century later as an alternative flavor.

In June of 2007 Hostess announced the return of the banana-creme Twinkie. In the past the banana-flavored version was offered as a limited-time promotion. Due in part to sales increasing by 20% when the banana version was offered, the banana Twinkie will now be produced permanently.

Well it may not be new to Hostess, but I'm sure I speak for more than just myself when I say I certainly wasn't around back when it was original. I'd wager most of the folks that were around back then are no longer capable of eating through anything but a straw.

Anyway, I rarely crave the vanilla ones either.

Only in the reduced size it looks like spooge...when you enlarge it the word is clear.

Wasn't the original twinkie filling banana cream until the war and they sent more fresh fruit to people fighting over-seas??
