LENEXA, KAN. — Hostess Brands, Inc. is launching a limited-edition snack called $TWINKcoin under its Twinkies snack cake brand. The new $TWINKcoin is a play on the current cryptocurrency frenzy and features coin-shaped cakes.

The cakes are similar to Twinkies in composition and flavor — featuring a vanilla sponge cake exterior and crème-filled interior — but have been made in a disc shape to mimic the shape of an enlarged coin.

The new $TWINKcoin snack cakes will be available at Walmart stores starting at the end of June for a limited time. They are distributed in boxes of 10 individually wrapped cakes at the suggested retail price of $3.49.

As far as I can tell, this isn't satire.

TWINK is title just in time for pride month to wrap up. I better grab a few as a collector since Twinkies last forever. But still in disbelief that this wasn't written by The Onion.

I guess this is what happens when the talent pool for your marketing team is limited to people willing to live in Lenexa.

Twinkies don't go bad, so these new stablecoins should hold value pretty well. I think it's important to remember the transparency value of the blockchain, and always maintain your own keys when buying the NFTs.

Did I buzzword in cryptobro well?

Pretty close. Basically you're saying to own the $TWINKcoins under your bed and not hold them in a custody service for the $TWINKcoins yield ;)

It's less for transparency and more for reducing counterparty risk, is the only slip up. But I'll give you a B+ (although that's nice because I should dock you for the cryptobro term, much cringe, pls never use again).

"As far as I can tell, this isn't satire."

That's the best type of satire.


"Twinkies don't go bad, so these new stablecoins should hold value pretty well."

I suspect they will age better than Tether.

I think I may have some fun with this.

Me: Wifey, I have an exciting new investment that can never go bad. It's a paradigm shift towards sustainable no-lose wealth creation, and I've already invested!

Wife: <obviously in her head thinking I bought into a pyramid scheme or something>

Me: Whip out box of twinkcoin

Add some dramatic flair in the middle

No no no, at the end. Cut a hole in the box and put your dick in it. Then when she opens the box, the song starts.

An inflation resistant asset is a thoughtful gift.
