Happy birthday to the Twinkie on of my FAVORITE Treats!

The soft snack cakes were invented by a Chicago baker on this day in 1930.  In the early years, they were not blessed with that famous vanilla creamy filling we know and love. They, instead, were filled with -- what? Any Guesses?


Banana cream! During WW II, bananas were rationed, so the company switched to vanilla cream. I'll stick with the Vanilla thanks!
