Twinkie Love

In the movie Zombieland, Woody Harrelson searches high and low for a Twinkie!  The childhood lunchbox favorite is still on shelves in grocery stores today tempting all of us with its spongy goodness.   I have to admit, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a Twinkie! One quick pull at the wrapper and it was everything I remembered it to be.  Only this time, over the top with a glass of Asti!

Asti & Twinkies have two things in common.  They both have a bad rap and both can be over the top sweet, which makes them perfect partners in crime.   Because Asti is often sugary sweet, the flavor of the wine isn’t lost when you take a bite of the Twinkie.  The bubbles from the wine help to cleanse the palate after each bite.  Other wines to try with Twinkies are Moscato d’Asti and German off-dry Riesling.
