USA Hostess Twinkies Box of 10 only £2.99 @ B&M Stores

76
Found 4th Oct 2014
U.S.A imported Hostess Twinkies
Box of 10 individually wrapped cakes
Total weight 385g
Box has Summer of Twinkies Cue the Fun on the right side.
Best before 3 Jan 2015

I went into my local B&M after the big bar of Reese's which I got :-) but found these in the cake section had no shelve price as had only just been put out. Asked a staff member and they said they were only £2.99 & available in all stores, bargain when you look how much they go for on the bay and American import sites.

Barrow in Furness town centre store must be 20 boxes on the shelve, they also have all the Reece's range, M&M's flavours, Baby Ruth bars, Twizzlers, Nerds, Jolly Rancher's.

I could have spent a fortune on all of these, but resisted when I had spent over £10 on sweets

Not a bad price considering these are 3 bucks a pack stateside. That would equate to about £2.30 including VAT, so £3's not bad!

Now if only they had Chocodiles (or "Chocolate Twinkies" as they're now called).

We got some at Tesco when they were a fiver... were not impressed... Hubby even braved the E numbers... ended up giving the box away.

Similar experience.. Ordered online via tesco with no hint of not being veggie friendly.. looked at the ingredients and a constituent of the "Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening" Was "Beef Fat"... Last I checked, beef a vegetable isn't!

Needless to say the office got a sugar rush the next day!

You say they have m&m flavours, there wouldn't b the mint flavours in there would there? Seen them in tesco but not paying £1.50 a small bag xxx

Lol I watched 'Zombieland' recently it was surprisingly good. A bit like Natural Born Killers meets Adventureland if you've seen those?!

They are OK, not worth £3. When I bought some in USA it said 270 calories per portion, I was amazed at how many calories each one had, until I read that two twinkies was a portion, typical supersize portions!

Hey, I didn't realize that there were so many health food fans on this list.....just kidding. When the end of Twinkies seemed to be real, not so long ago, I saw grown men cry. Twinkies, you couldn't make them up - not a natural ingredient in sight. Oh, sorry, I guess sugar is still natural. But I love them, grew up with them, being from across the pond, and glad to see so many good folks here in the UK love the good stuff!!

I would try these for £3 but sadly we don't have a B&M near me. Would not try them for £5 though.

Thanks will check my local store

At least they are being real as to what a portion is. Most sweets manufacturers suggest a way too small portion size to make it look healthy to eat. No one opens a small bag of sweet and just eat 1/4 of the bag and save it for later.

way too sweet for my taste, also that white filling is made with hydrogenated fat, taste like cream made of pure oil.

Here is the whole trio of old-fashioned American junk food classics - Hostess Cupcakes, Sno balls, and the current delicacy being discussed here, Twinkies.

Dude, this is gastronomic history here.

Bargain. Got told about them too today. Some left in Stockport. May get some but I already have two full boxes or maybe three haha.

Heat given

Always wanted to try at this price will do hot deal

For anyone that hasn't tried twinkies, they are disgusting. If you are old enough to remember the cheapest, long life swiss rolls you could buy in shops, they are that texture - basically like a greasy bath sponge - oily yet dry at the same time (some combination) with an open texture. Then you have the addition of awful fake "creme" inside, the likes of which we havent seen here in many a long day. They are even more overrated that Oreos which I still can't understand sell over here when almost any British biscuit is better. I have come to the conclusion they are only loved by Americans due to nostalgia, not taste and by wannabe Americans over here.

I DO love sno balls though!

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit binge-eating.

What you saying bro?



I see she is in a Disney park with the mister fan and a Mickey Mouse ice cream.


These are pretty gross, but it's a good price for them compared to elsewhere.

I love Oreos! i could easily want to eat a whole packet. But why does that make me a wannabe american? But hey maybe everywhere should just sell what you like as you think you know best.


Edited by: "MichITR" 4th Oct 2014

Don't suppose they were selling corndogs too ?

Oreo's better than your average custard cream anyday especially double stuff.

I wanted to try twinkies for years and when I finally did it was the biggest let down.

They taste very artificial and cheap.

They had Pretzel, Almond, peanut butter bag or large box, also some others but not sure on flavour bag colour was green and a purple one, hope that helps.

I picked up the 4x Almond ones, none left now :-) a couple of the peanut butter boxes at £1, a few King size Baby Ruth bars at 89p

Also Poundland had restocked on the US Candy, Reece's pieces, Whoppers with Reece's

B&M are buying wholesale from americangrocery.co.uk/ checked the importer details on the backs of the sweets and leads to this company but would definitely not pay the prices they charge direct £7.50 for the box of 10 Twinkies.

Yes, they have mint, peanut butter & pretzel, 69p a bag

Screw twinkies, give me tunnocks bars any day (or their snowballs at a push).

Tunnocks coconut logs...mmmmmm mmmm

Sorry but have disagree, for me the correct tunnocks order is teacakes, snowballs, caramel logs then caramel wafers last. The logs might have pipped snowballs but they are just so messy to eat. Going past B&M tomorrow when in town anyway, my sis and I will probably split a box, always fancied trying but I've only ever seen them in Tesco at £7.50. Thing is I'd have tried 1 at 75p but not prepared to buy 10 at that price.

Ten pack of blue ribands for a pound, thats what I'm talking about

Saw these in Pundland Bromley today. £1 for a pack of two.
