Hostess Twinkies & Zingers are delicious. A few years back when Hostess went out of business there was panic and people we spending a fortune for the last precious boxes of the snacks. As luck would have it, I had vacuum packed some Hostess snacks just months before the announcement. Unfortunately however, I didn’t unwrap each item before vacuum packing them and they didn’t last well.
Now that Hostess has been bought out and is making the beloved treats again it’s a great time to try freeze drying them! This was an experimental batch to see how they’d turn out. Let me say they were everything I expected and more!
The Zingers are just like a cracker version of the original. But unlike a cracker, once in your mouth the freeze dried zingers dissolve and turn into the same texture as they normally would be.
We will definitely be making more of these!
In fact, we’ll probably add them to our Shop here on the blog eventually.
