Morton Twinkie Supper

Dan Goodsell, keeper of obscure lore, has stumbled across evidence of something I never knew existed: TV dinners that come with Twinkies inside the box. That's right: burger, fries, corn...and a Twinkie. Spaghetti, meatballs, what looks like peas...and a Twinkie. Was there ever a time in my life when I would have found those concepts appetizing in the least? I mean, I used to eat Twinkies, but with spaghetti?

Now I'm assuming the Twinkie had to be frozen too, right? So while a Twinkie might sound appealing, imagine a Twinkie you had to reheat. Egad, people.

And what's great is that the Twinkie just isn't enough--there's another dessert in there too.

1974. When Twinkies weren't just a snack, they were a part of dinner.
