The iconic Hostess cakes, Twinkies, are making an epic comeback and most recently with the help of its X-Men Twinkies line called 'eXtreme Creme.' Hostess has teamed up with the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past movie and created the limited-edition snack to give you and the gang of superheroes some carb-fuel before their debut.

The cream-filled pastries come in two flavors, which are inspired by the X-Men team's colors of blue and red: Blue Raspberry and Strawberry. The cake's exterior still sticks to the golden yellow sponge cake, but the filling is colored and provides the different flavoring.

The packaging is also designed in likes of the film; it features promotional pictures of X-Men, which include the iconic characters portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry, to name a few. Stats for Superhero-Inspired Cakes Trending: Older & Mild
