Twinkie-Flavored Cappuccinos Are Hitting The Shelves
By Cooking Panda
We know, we know. Spring is supposedly just around the corner, but that hasn’t stopped the weather in the Northeast, at least, from remaining temperamental. You may feel ready to break out the short sleeves and popsicles, and pack away your sweaters, but the earth seems to have other plans. One day the sun is shining and the air is crisp but warming up; the next day, the skies are overcast and it’s snowing.
In order to help warm America up through the end of the stubborn winter, Hostess has dipped its toe into the beverage business, and is now bringing consumers its newest cozy product. In a partnership with Kerry Convenience, Hostess Brands has come up with the Twinkies Cappuccino for its grand debut into the hot drinks market.
Kerry will now manufacture and distribute Twinkies Cappuccinos under the Hostess brand for its convenience store channel, according to Food Business News, and the beverage is meant to taste much like the classic Twinkie sponge cake.
Consumers can expect the cappuccino to feature milky and sponge cake flavors, with just a hint of coffee. In other words, if you’re big on the coffee bean taste and aren’t a fan of the dessert product, you may want to steer clear of this one.
If you are somebody who really loves the classic Twinkie sponge cake, however, you’ll be able to pick up the cappuccino in Sheetz northeastern c-stores. For fans outside of the Northeast, don’t fret; in just a few weeks, the drinks will be available in convenience stores nationwide for all to taste test.
“Hostess has risen to be the No. 1 snack cake of choice for c-store customers,” Ellen Copaken, vice president of marketing at Hostess Brands, LLC, told Food Business News. “Twinkies Cappuccino not only provides consumers with another option when selecting a treat, it combines two of their favorites into one decadent indulgence. Further, the beverage allows c-store operators the opportunity for multi-category promotional activity, rewarding consumers in an engaging way.”
