Taste test: This clone of Twinkies generally resembled the original, with the same shape, a golden yellow color and three creme holes on the bottom.
The box contained eight individually wrapped cakes. There was a Twinkie-like taste, but not an exact match, and the moistness level seemed lower than Twinkies as there was less creme filling (and less than it looked like in the picture on the box). The cakes weren't too dry, just different — not a bad at all. They did not promise that they would be exactly the same as Twinkies (these knockoffs never seem to even acknowledge the existence of the original) so this could be a perfectly good alternative if you want to save a few cents and still have a Twinkie-like experience.
