Prior to WWII Hostess made their Twinkies with Banana cream filling. During the war bananas were rationed so the company was forced to use a cheap white cream (not even vanilla) instead. It stuck and stayed that way for 60 years. Around 2004 I was walking through the grocery store and Hostess had a BIG Retro type anniversary commemorative limited edition banana Twinkie display. $1.00 for a box of ten. I bought some and stuck them in the freezer. Because the cake is so spongy and low quality and the filling is 90% fluffed air, they never got hard in the freezer. They were more firm and WAY better than room temp.
