Earlier this year, Hostess had Twinkie fans vote for the next Twinkie flavor. And, while they were voting, Hostess introduced the next Twinkie flavors, Chocolate Creme and Strawberry & Creme. So, technically, fans got to vote for the next next next Twinkie flavor.
Anyhoo, Lemon Meringue was victorious in that flavor election, capturing 35 percent of the vote. Raspberry Tart was runner-up with 33 percent, while Cookies n Creme and Blueberry Pie had 18 percent and 12 percent, respectively.
So get ready Twinkies fans for Lemon Meringue Twinkies…in 2012. Yes, in seven months or so you’ll get to enjoy these new Twinkies, which, when released, will be available for a limited time. Although, if the Mayan calendar is correct and the world ends, forget what I said in the previous sentence.
