Twinkie Day

A Twinkie is an American snack cake, marketed as a “Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling. Twinkies were invented in Schiller Park, Illinois, by James Alexander Dewar, a baker for the Continental Baking Company. Since there were several machines that were used to make the cream-filled strawberry shortcake that was being used during the off strawberry season, Dewar decided to fill a snack cake with banana cream, which he dubbed as the Twinkie.
