Why You Should Minionize A Twinkie (Plus, a giveaway of the Despicable Me 2 DVD!)

0



Didn’t you think that Twinkies went away? I did. I thought they up and left town. Not until I got contacted by a representative for Hostess did I realize that the Twinkies are back, back again, yes, they’re back, yes, they’re back, yes, they’re back…just like Marshall Mathers.

 
And they are being minionized.
 
Somewhere along Twinkies’ way back to the top, they crossed paths with Universal Studios and decided to join forces to celebrate Despicable Me 2’s release on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD by having the Twinkies minionated.
 
What does this mean?
 
Well, that’s really for you all to decide.
 
Hostess is inviting fans from near and wide to participate in The Twinkie Minion Makeover Sweepstakes by dressing up the cream-filled piece of yellow cake bliss as a Minion between now and January 5, 2014. You can get started by visiting the Hostess Facebook page and then getting some Minion accessories for your Twinkie by going here. The next step is to upload the picture to the Hostess Facebook page as an entry to win a daily “instant prize”, which includes a Despicable Me 2 Blu-Ray and special offers from Hostess. This entry will also make you eligible for the GRAND PRIZE, which is a Home Theater system, a collection of 30 Blu-Rays and a year’s supply of Hostess.
 
Zuh. Dang.
 
(There was a guy in high school who would exclaim “zuh-dang!” here and there. I never got it, which is why it has never left my mind and I like to bust it out when I feel like it.)
 
A Home Theater System would be nice, right?

And a year supply of Hostess? You could build a small fort with all of the Twinkies you’d accumulate! (If you do win and you do make that fort, CALL ME.)
 

If I got a year’s supply of Twinkies, I would, besides build the fort, of course, use “minions” where I’d typically use onions.

“You want any minions on your hot dog?” *crumbles Twinkies into a chili dog

“Mmmm… This casserole is delicious, but I think it could use some minions.” *sprinkles Twinkie shards all over the melting cheddar cheese

“You like minions on your Frito pie, right, little boy?” *immediately shoves Twinkie pieces in between the corn chips, chili and cheese while being completely oblivious to the sobbing child

(You know minion breath has got to be better than onion breath.)

The other thing?

MINION ON THE ONION.

Forget about Elf on the Shelf. Get your minion. Get an onion. Stick that minion on the onion. Genius! “The minion on the onion is watching you, Madison, and if you don’t behave, you’ll have to eat a *Twinion Taco!”

(*Recipe for Twinion Taco: Put a Twinkie minion and some onions in a food processor. Press on. Scoop out. Wrap in a tortilla.)

I could go on, but it’s time to get onto the DVD. I thought we’d kick this Despicable Me 2 party off right and give one of the movies away. Do you want it? It would be a great stocking stuffer and the DVD case would make an excellent door for your Twinkie fort. If you are interested, all you need to do is like the Kelley’s Break Room Facebook page and leave a comment! There’s nothing else that you need to do. Twinkie swear!
