Twinkie, Twinkie, Movie Star: A Cinematic Homage To The Twinkie (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The Twinkie: 1930 - 2012 ... ? This past Friday, November 16th, came the horrific news that Hostess Brands, Inc. could be going out of business, taking with it the Twinkie, one of the most beloved and cherished snack foods in the American household and perhaps the most famous artificial food item in Hollywood history. Shock, outrage, grief, and mourning swept across the land.

While the company's bankruptcy proceedings are still ongoing and therefore the fate of the Twinkie not entirely sealed as of yet, Huffington Post Entertainment wanted to take this opportunity to pay its respects to this national treasure of cupboard and silver screen. We may dine on turkeys, but this Thanksgiving... we are all Twinkies.

Special thanks to Lila Kalick and Samuel Wilkes for assistance with the conception of this video.
