On April 6, 1930 James A. Dewar invented Twinkies. Dewar was the manager of a Continental Baking plant in Schiller Park, Illinois. He came up with the idea to utilize a machine that was only used in strawberry season for the rest of the year.
You may remember that back in November 2012 that Hostess went bankrupt and Twinkies were unavailable. During the time Twinkies were unavailable in the US they were made in Canada which is where James A. Dewar was born.
In July 2014 Twinkies made The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever. I was able to get of box from the First Batch.
Since then Twinkies have been made in many different flavors like Key Lime Slime.
You could also get Deep Fried Twinkies.
Did you know Twinkies have been around for that long?
