Hostess in Pop Culture
- Ghostbusters – Egon uses a Twinkie to represent the normal psychokinetic activity in New York. On that particular day, that Twinkie would be “twenty-five feet long weighing approximately 600 pounds.”
- Comic Book Ads – Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Hostess products not only provided America with a sugary dessert treat, but also helped some of comicdom’s famous heroes fight crime.
- Family Guy – After Y2K destroyed civilization as we know it, Peter Griffin leads his family on a quest… a Twinkie Factory in Natick. It is around this factory that Peter builds a new civilization.
- Zombieland – Tallahassee (played by Woody Harrelson) wants only one thing in this zombie apocalypse… a Twinkie.
- King of the Hill – Bobby Hill’s favorite dessert… fruit pies. He even uses them as a further enticement to get his father to go to the Megalomart to look for a part for his truck.
