Open Post: Hosted By Hostess’ Fake Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich Twinkies

September 13, 2019 / Posted by:

Hostess announced via Twitter a new item that no one wants, needs or is excited about: Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich Twinkies. Unless some sort of universal immaculate conception happens and everyone becomes pregnant with Snooki’s baby, there’s no need for this.

According to Delish:

Hostess is notorious for trolling the Internet at large—just last month they tweeted a picture of mustard-filled Twinkies on National Mustard Day. Well, I hate to say it, but they’ve played mind games with us once again, this time by showcasing a box of Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich Twinkies and NO ONE WAS OK.

On Monday, the brand took to Twitter and tweeted a photo of the cringingly gross, possibly new Twinkie flavor. With the very upsetting photo, they wrote: “Only the real ones know about these #Twinkies #PeanutButter #Pickles.”

This is the tweet:

Hostess needs to calm down with the caption, “Only the real ones know about these” WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! And who are the “real ones”, because I’m thinking they are pregnant chicks high on bath salts who have been deeply wronged by a Twinkie.


Turns out that Hostess lied and admitted their lie on Today:

The brand did eventually come clean to Today and said these types of Twinkies would not actually be a real thing…bless. “This is just some social media levity from Hostess. We regularly feature fun, fictional products on our social media, and this is one of those,” a Hostess spokesperson announced.

All I can say is PRAISE F*CKING BE that this is all fake news. Oh, and @Hostess? Don’t play with our hearts like this ever again. Please.

So as if WE AREN’T GOING THROUGH ENOUGH, Hostess decided that it be a good time to troll its customers long before April Fool’s?! And I don’t know much about much, but I do know that we don’t need to be trolled by Twinkies. It’s bad enough that they put us through the Twinkie Ghostbusters debacle.

I have a short list of people and things I can trust and Hostess baked goods are at the top of that list, so this lying and foolery needs to stop. We want our Twinkes regular, deep-fried, and possibly in cereal form, and THAT’S ALL.
