Big news today is the bankruptcy of Hostess Brands, which produces Twinkies… Many locals started hoarding every last pack off grocery shelves and convenience-store racks… No need to panic though.

Like artery-clogging Twinkies, these babies contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oil… But hey, No Trans Fat — just like American Twinkies!
Complete ingredients list and nutritional information to be posted soon. Meanwhile, tell everyone… Koreatown is the best place in America to survive the Twinkie Apocalypse (Twinkapocalypse?).
