Twinkie Ice Cream Is Real And We Need It!

If your New Year’s resolution involved dieting then Hostess and Nestle have other plans for you. The snack food brands are teaming up to bring us the flavor combo that will melt your will power (pun intended). Finally, we can enjoy our Twinkies in ice cream form!

Remember in 2012 when we were told that Hostess was shutting down and we’d never enjoy Twinkies ever again? Thank goodness that was a false alarm; otherwise we wouldn’t be blessed with the amazing invention of Twinkie ice cream. Uproxx reports that Hostess has teamed up with Nestle to bring us not one, but at least four new ice cream flavors inspired by Hostess snack cakes: Twinkie (of course), CupCakes, SnoBalls and DingDongs.

These ice creams are limited edition, and although we were told they’d be out in February 2017, some lucky shoppers are already finding them on the shelves in random local convenience stores in the U.S., so keep a sharp eye out.

The Twinkie ice cream features buttercream ice cream with chunks of Twinkie and a swirl of vanilla icing. The other flavors? Well, you’ll have to wait and see.

According to Elite Daily, Hostess’ near-bankruptcy was due to the latest trend in healthy eating. Hostess just couldn’t market its snack cakes to an audience who was watching their sugar and calorie intake. However, things change and we couldn’t be more excited to ruin our resolutions with some good old-fashioned Twinkies, especially when they come in the form of ice cream.

Twinkies made their debut back in 1930, and no health trend should be able to tear them away from us. Don’t get me wrong — SnoBalls and DingDongs are great, too, but there’s just something special about a Twinkie.

So far, we’re only aware of Dollar General carrying these limited edition treats. If you have one nearby, go check it out (and perhaps stock up while you have the chance). See if you can find the DingDongs and SnoBalls flavors as well, so you can let us know how they taste!
