Hostess is Bringing Deep Fried Twinkies to a Walmart Near You


If you’ve ever been to a state fair, you know about the many delicious and magically deep-fried foods that can be found there—everything from Oreos to pickles to Twinkies. Now, Hostess is ready to bring the overindulgent treat to a Walmart near you.

Deep Fried Twinkies will be exclusively available at every Walmart location across the United States, with two flavors from which to choose: Deep Fried Chocolate and Deep Fried Classic Twinkies. But don't look to find them next to the Ding Dongs; you'll have to head to the frozen food aisle to find these cream-filled sponge cakes, which means that you'll have to warm them up before eating (which is the only way to get the full effect).

Deep Fried Twinkies aren’t the only spin on the classic treat Hostess is offering this summer. The snack company will also release limited edition Key Lime “Slime” Twinkies next month, as a movie tie-in with the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot.

Deep Fried Twinkies will be released nationwide at Walmart beginning on August 22. The retail chain has an exclusive deal with Hostess for six months before they’ll be available in other grocery stores.
