At Least Twinkies are Back

Posted by middlerage on July 26, 2013

As Mark L. so aptly says, in my kvetch on unemployment figures, things are not quite so terrible because Twinkies have come back (like the zombie food they are).

Which leads me to give a shout out to one of my all-time favorite zombie junk food snacks: Gansitos!

Gansitos are Twinkies turned up to 11. Take a cream filled golden cake, add a layer of jam, and coat in gansitochocolate.  My stomach acids are already churning.

I first ran into Gansito(s) at summer Boy Scout camp in the 1970s. I spent every bit of fun money I could on them. Then they disappeared in the following decades. I recently re-discovered them in the latino shops that have sprung up to serve the immigrant community. I couldn’t tell you if they were imported or domestic in the 1970s – not something a young boy cares to notice – but they are back, and that’s all you need to know.

    Never heard of them, but they sound yummy. I’ll have to make a Gansito recon trip to Fiesta…
