After eating several (no regrets), the pumpkin spice Twinkies didn't raise the bar in pumpkin spice insanity, but they certainly reached it. While the standard Twinkie yellow cake is a familiar cream-delivering vehicle, Hostess should build on this with more seasonal offerings. Pumpkin's not the only seasonal spice out there, after all. Christmas mint Twinkies, anyone?
That said, if you're already stuffing your face with Twinkies, this new flavor will certainly make your junk food binge a little more festive.
