Twinkies Coffee

Twinkies Coffee

When friend of Modest Coffee, Big Mike, told us about the Twinkies K-cups that he saw at his local Menards, we knew we had to make an episode. Little did we know, this story held much more than we expected.

Steph covers the history of Hostess, the birth of the Twinkie, and the company's convoluted path to the hands of an (allegedly) disturbing CEO. We also learn a valuable lesson, if it comes in a K-cup, brew it in the K-cup.

"Mr. Twinkie is definitely rolling over in his grave right now."
