A twinkie is an angel food cake, also known as a sponge cake.
A sponge cake is a sweet cake that has a light yet dense weight. Hence it's slang name 'sponge'
because when lightly pressed, it rises back just like a sponge. Although twinkle's really are much
lighter than a sponge cake. Take a bite off the end and you will see a small circle of light fluffy
white cream through the center. The center icing is similar to cool whip but thicker and with a
some what heavier taste. The snack cake is shaped in an easy to hold elongated curved shape.
They became a famous product from the get go due to their almost commonality of taste in that
everyone that likes sweet, will usually eat a twinkie.....even if they don't like them per se.
For example, I don't buy twinkles. I don't really care for them. I would prefer a snowball any
day over a twinkie. However, if there is only a twinkie, I will eat the twinkie.
WHAT THE HECK AM I TALKING ABOUT A TWNKIE FOR? DON'T ASK ME WHAT A SNOWBALL IS!
