Meet The Twinkirito, A Twinkie Burrito

Oh, Bite It

The Twinkie is famous for being the king of junk food snacks. Even though these golden cakes are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, it's quietly understood that they're as bad for you as a burrito the size of an infant. But that knowledge hasn't stopped people from deep frying Twinkies -- a regular sight these days at the county fair, and a serious gut bomb in the best of ways. We thought that was as bad as it got for the Twinkie, but then we came across the Twinkirito and we realized that we've never been more wrong.

The Twinkerito is the brain child of food blogger Oh, Bite It!, who is well versed in crazy culinary creations (like ramen noodle chicken tenders). While many bloggers have found ways to make the Twinkie even more indulgent, this latest Twinkie creation wins the prize for being the gutsiest. Here's why: it's a Twinkie-burrito hybrid. This Twinkie has been snuggly blanketed in a wonton wrapper, folded up like a burrito, and then fried before being sprinkled with powdered sugar. It's absolutely disgusting and completely amazing all in one golden, fried package. Take a closer look.
