Holiday World celebrates the return with Twinkie-eating contest

Posted: Updated:
SPENCER CO., IN (WFIE) -

The iconic golden sponge cake, the Twinkie, is back on store shelves. 

Even Holiday World celebrated its return with a Twinkie-eating contest.

Any guest to the theme park could sign up to try to eat up to three deep-fried Twinkies in 60-seconds. The Twinkies were covered in powdered sugar and topped off with raspberry sauce.

The winner received a Holicash gift card.

"Twinkies are so well-known across the country when we found out last week, or so, that they were coming back on store shelves today, we said we've got to have an event. If we're going to serve Twinkies, we might as well go all out," said Eric Snow, the VP, Marketing and sales at Holiday World.

"That was pretty good. Really those were hot, but that was the first time I've had Twinkies that way," said Michael Green, the Twinkie-eating winner.

Holiday World says it will continue to offer the deep-fried Twinkies at its concessions the rest of the season.
