Deep fried Twinkies? In my supermarket’s frozen food section? It’s more likely than you think thanks to the nice folks at Hostess! Now you can get your Twinkie fix without all that messy actual deep-frying: the iconic snack food comes pre-deep-fried (whatever that means) and only needs to be “oven baked in minutes”. Choose from Original Golden or Chocolate breaded & filled – why not both? (image via Mike Mozart)

Maybe Deep Fried Asparagus is the San Francisco Threat. (image via stu spivack)
Talk about putting lipstick on a pig… all the lemongrass seasoning, spices, lime broth and yes – deep frying to a golden hue – won’t change the fact that the above dish is, for want of a better word, “crap”.
