  • Bon Appetit's Senior Food Editor and pastry chef Claire Saffitz attempts to make a gourmet Twinkie without the hard-to-pronounce chemical ingredients. The first test is Genoise cake, an Italian sponge cake. For the creamy filling, Claire uses 7 minute frosting. The second test is yellow cake and buttercream filling. Next comes chiffon cake, a light cake that uses vegetable oil. Finally, with some help from Test Kitchen Manager Brad Leone, Claire decides to "Frankenstein" the recipe.

    It hurts seeing her throw away that mountain of twinkies

  • Mari Labuddah  (5 days ago))

    It is sad seeing you do not understand chemistry is not food ! Our human body can only process about 10% of the ingredients found in this cake meaning it will lead to cramps headache allergies vomiting and diarrhoea depending on the amount Eaten. This is not food as food is considered edible substance human body can stomach.

    I don't think they throw them away, in a recent video she stated."We never waste it I always leave them out and they all get over really quickly"

  • Teena Arches  (Oct 4, 2018))

    I really hope they donate all the food (experiments) they make and not just throw it away.The amount of food they make is crazy.

    +Good Hunter Because you know what else they do in their spare time?

    +Hajar Doumouya If they really cared enough, they would have actually done something more productive than just complain in the youtube comments section.

    Am I the only one who was very bothered by the fact they threw away the twinkies?

  • Ellie  (2 days ago))

    +Sarah Trevino thank you common sense

  • Ellie  (2 days ago))

    +Mia Hayton a pile of Twinkies can't solve world hunger (even though I agree they shouldn't have thrown them away)

  • Kayla Palmer  (Jan 11, 2019))

    Sometimes I wonder, in the most affectionate way possible, who let Brad in this kitchen 😂 just to clarify, he is intelligent and talented, but kind of comes off as a guy that wandered in and they couldn't get rid of him and then he just grew on everyone like a cat.

  • MagicalKid  (Feb 15, 2019))

    You mean grew on everyone like a RASH?

  • Leah Brownie  (Dec 22, 2018))

    What was the point in buying all those twinkies just to throw them out?! Buy one packet if that’s all you need!!!

  • Monica Lassetter  (4 days ago))

    It's like $5 worth and they probably had them in a pantry somewhere in the offices for a long time.

  • Mattie  (Feb 14, 2019))

    Because they taste horrible.

  • Legend Of Panda  (Aug 27, 2018))

    I was really upset when she threw that all away, but then I remembered they were Twinkies and I don't really care.

  • Audra Guerrero  (5 days ago))

    Me too! 😂 it’s only okay because it’s Twinkies and they are nasty

  • Momlara AJ  (Jan 31, 2019))

    Me too

  • Jim Fortune  (Jul 3, 2018))
