Taste test: This special edition of Twinkies followed in the color traditions of peppermint candies, with a red cake and white filling. (They should not be confused with the White Peppermint version, which had yellow cake, white filling and a white chocolate coating.)

I bit in to find there was essentially no mint at all. It tasted like a regular Twinkie, albeit with a very different color.

The big plus here was that the box included 10 cakes instead of just nine for those coated ones. The big minus was that a snack cake that claimed to be peppermint-flavored didn't taste minty at all.

Smell test: Just the mildest hint of mint (and even that, I might have been imagining). Smelled mostly like a Twinkie.
