The Twinkie Burrito Exists. Get Ready for Heartburn.

Once upon a time there was a marvelous snack that both cured hunger and helped describe paranormal activity. This tube-shaped Twinkie, as it was to be known, put a smile on faces everywhere until it was rudely discontinued. Now it's back and ready to be used in ridiculous food mashups.

Food blog Oh, Bite It! just unveiled the Twinkerito. This Twinkie/burrito hybrid finally adds more oil and carbs to the clearly-much-too-healthy snack cake. It starts with a Twinkie rolled in a wonton wrapper. Then the whole thing is deep-fried and topped with powdered sugar.

This sounds absolutely disgusting and absolutely amazing at the same time. The blog has the recipe up if you want to tempt fate and try it yourself.
