Twinkies Get a Minion Makeover Despicable Me Style (Sponsored Post)

This is what a Minion tastes like!

There are some things in life that kids simply cannot live without. Air. Water. Glitter. Then there are things that every kid should have at least once in their life, just to say they’ve truly lived. What would be on that list, you ask?


Twinkies, ladies and gentleman, should be a staple of every childhood.

And now for a small confession … my daughter is 8 years old. She JUST had her first Twinkie. I know, it’s blasphemous. Worst parents ever? Sigh. Nobody’s perfect y’all.

Thank goodness for Despicable Me 2.

How do these two things relate, you might ask? Well it wasn’t until I saw a commercial for the December 10 release of the Despicable Me sequel on Blu-Ray that it hit me that Gru’s wacky minions look exactly like, well, Twinkies!

Realizing we had fallen down on the jobs as parents, of course we rectified the situation immediately. Golden cake filled with creamy goodness introduced to 8-year-old, who immediately scarfed it down (see that picture above? It may or may not have cost me dearly to get her to slow down that munching for a snap).

And wouldn’t you know it, the folks at Hostess are waaaaay ahead of me.

They’re throwing a Twinkie party to celebrate the DVD release, and they’re letting the world in on the shenanigans.

All you have to do is Minion-ize your Twinkie and upload the photo to the Hostess Facebook page to win anything from the Despicable Me 2 Blu-Ray to Hostess offers or — this is the grand prize — a Home Theater System, a collection of 30 Blu-rays and a year’s supply of Hostess treats.

Want in? Dress your Twinkie up like a Minion and upload it to the Hostess Facebook page.

That is if your kids don’t eat them first.

What’s your kids’ favorite Hostess treat?
