The Twinkie Doomsday Map: 18 Places to Eat Deep-Fried Twinkies Before It's Too Late

View as Map

The Twinkie apocalypse may very well be approaching. And despite the fact that Hostess, Inc., makers of Twinkies, has announced plans to liquidate due to a standoff with employees, there are still cream-filled sponge cakes to be had across this great nation. And unlike the crazed snack cake addicts emptying grocery store shelves, you can get your Twinkie fix in deep-fried style. Below, a whopping 18 restaurants across America that serve deep-fried Twinkies battered, pan-fried, with ice cream, chocolate, and/or berries. Although there's still a slight chance Hostess will rally and/or sell the Twinkie brand, this may be your last shot. To the map:
