After a brief hiatus, Hostess Twinkies and Orange Cupcakes are back or soon will be. And thank goodness. I had not realized just how addicted I had become to the succulent cupcakes that are
teaming oozing with 55 ingredients. I’m not sure which ingredient had me so completely hooked, but I think it was Polysorbate 60. I do. One of the more common, yet controversial components of the orange cupcake is the partially hydrogenated canola oil. I don’t why they don’t just fully hydrogenated the oil, but I guess to make a profit, Hostess had to cut some corners. One of the more baffling ingredients in these delicately delectable treats is beef fat. As a unrepentant beef lover, I have to say that these cakes melt in my mouth like a rare Filet Mignon topped with a thin coat of melted blue cheese butter. I just have one question for Hostess: is that beef fat grass fed?
