A Twinkie is a golden sponge cake which has a creamy filling. It was made by James A. Dewar in 1930, and is made by Hostess. They can also be deep-fried and this was inspired by the deep-fried Mars bar. The Twinkie was originally filled with banana cream inside but was forced to switch to a vanilla cream taste during the Second World War because the bananas were rationed. Twinkies have around 150 calories (627.6 kJ) in each bar. Twinkies have a cookbook and it has over 60 recipes. Twinkies also have a mascot called Twinkie the Kid which is an anthropomorphized Twinkie.
