This week on Eating Disorder hosts Crazy Legs Conti and The Rev Spyro open up the show with a mysterious sound clip tease for the coming episode – Twinkies! After catching up for a minute, the guys welcome Steve Ettlinger to the program, author of “Twinkie, Deconstructed.” Talking about Steve’s past writing about beer and champagne, the conversation welcomes Steve’s daughter, Chelsea, to the show as well. Spyro and Crazy Legs recall their mothers packing lunch with strange items but agree that the Twinkie was the most iconic of desserts. Starting on a very informative discussion about Twinkies, how they’re made, bizarre ingredients, and nearly everything else, Steve shares a multitude of stories about his research on the Hostess cake. After the break, the group takes on the infamous Fruit Pie snack and Crazy Legs shares his escapades with the snacks through his competitive eating career. Tune in for a great show to learn all you ever wanted about the nostalgic sweets! This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
