Review: Hostess - Moonberry Twinkies

Hostess Moonberry Twinkies feature dark blue sponge cake and "moonberry" creme filling. They available for a limited time exclusively at Walmart.

They go for about $2.97 for a box of 10 Twinkies but I received this courtesy of Walmart.

With the slightly pitted surface of the sponge cake and dark blue color, these kinda look like a space rock if not for the perfectly-formed Twinkie shape.

For the most part, Moonberry Twinkies taste like a regular golden Twinkie save for the lightly berry-ish creme filling. The cake was a little dry this time around and slightly chewy as a result but was otherwise lightly sweet and spongy.

Overall, Hostess Moonberry Twinkies were just alright for me. I don't really have a hankering for berry-flavored Twinkies but they're worth a try if you do (and you don't mind all the food coloring). Or if you want a themed snack cake to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
