[at-l] Update on FRIED TWINKIES



William and I have been discussing this. I started this post as an
entertainment, but with a few suggestions form William, I am beginning to
think it has real possibilities.

First of all, is it really necessary to freeze the Twinkie? Couldn't we just
chill it in a cold stream? (In a Ziploc bag of course.)

Second, William suggested (from the Stove thread) a new hiker gotta have -
the Pepsi Can Deep Fryer. Who wants to design it?

Add four ounces of oil and place over your Pepsi Can Stove, insert battered
Twinkie, and wait sixty seconds. Remove Twinkie and enjoy. Is four ounces of
oil too much to carry for a trail treat like this?
