Prepackaged Deep-Fried Snack Cakes

The Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies will Retail at Walmart

— June 11, 2016 — Lifestyle
Getting your hand on one of the deep-fries snack cakes used to mean hitting up a country fair, but the Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies are set to hit shelves to the delight of consumers everywhere.

While the original Twinkie is sold ready-made, the Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies are set to be sold frozen and require those who buy them to bake them in the oven.

The additional step required to enjoy the Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies allows the snack cakes to be a more specialized product that requires a bit more work to enjoy. This rebels against the traditional recipes used in the prepackaged food market that focuses on convenience. However, with foodie culture showing little sign of slowing down the Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies could prove to be a hit with those craving the carnival confection.
Trend Themes
1. Specialized Prepackaged Snack Cakes - The Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies introduce an additional step for consumers, offering a more specialized product in the prepackaged food market.
2. Convenience Vs. Experience - The Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies challenge the convenience-focused approach of prepackaged food, providing consumers with an experiential baking process.
3. Catering to Foodie Culture - The Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies tap into the growing demand for unique and indulgent snacks, catering to the preferences of food enthusiasts.
Industry Implications
1. Frozen Food Retail - The introduction of Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies provides an opportunity for frozen food retailers to expand their product offerings with innovative and specialized snack cakes.
2. Convenience Food Manufacturing - Convenience food manufacturers can explore the production of prepackaged snack cakes that offer a more experiential and engaging consumer experience, following the example of Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies.
3. Food Truck and Fair Vendors - Food truck and fair vendors can take inspiration from the success of Hostess Deep-Fried Twinkies and explore new deep-fried snack cake creations to attract customers seeking unique and indulgent treats.
