Hostess Tweeted About Peanut Butter & Pickle Flavored Twinkies And The Internet Lost It

By Malia Wooten

Just when you’ve thought you’ve seen it all…

Before you blow your top too, let us start off by saying that peanut butter and pickle sandwich flavored Twinkies are not a thing… yet.

The makers behind some of the most addicting “pastries” from childhood apparently have a Twitter and seemingly think that they’ve cracked the code on the next successful junk food to hit the shelves. (This is why nothing over the age of 70 should ever have a Twitter – yes, that includes brands lol.)

Hostess Snacks posted the following tweet this week, and let’s just say the feedback was pretty hilarious.

Though some people may find the idea of peanut butter and pickles combined as a great snacking option, it seems as though the majority of internet trolls find it to be pretty mind-boggling. And to be honest, we’re not mad at them about it.

Sure, maybe it wouldn’t be all that bad – but come on! Some of us are still getting adjusted to all the pumpkin spiced snacks! Why Hostess thought that this would be a hilarious joke – we’re unsure. A company spokesperson told Today that “this is just some social media levity from Hostess. We regularly feature fun, fictional products on our social media, and this is one of those.”

Our advice? Keep tryin’ Hostess!
