Review: Hostess Mixed Berry Twinkies Limited Time!

Last Updated on 2022/03/24

I saw the Hostess Mixed Berry Twinkies some time ago but I didn’t decide to try them until I saw the Hostess Cotton Candy Twinkies were back. I figured I would try these too!

Product Details

On the box it says, “golden sponge cake with naturally & artificially flavored mixed berry creamy filling”.

Classic sponge cake, filled with a mouth-watering berry crème and endless love.

AVAILABLE DEC 16 – FEB 14

LIMITED EDITION

Taste

Something about the mixed berry flavor that’s a hit or miss. Perhaps because the grape or berry flavored cough medicine leaves quite the impression on many of us since our infancy? I surely haven’t forgotten that flavor.

These mixed berry Twinkies tasted like a sweeter and creamier version of cough medicine to me. I really don’t know how else to describe it.

I don’t think the mixed berry flavor is the issue. Perhaps it’s the fact that the cream is entirely mixed berry flavor. I think I would’ve enjoyed this more if it had berry jam with the regular white cream instead.

Would I buy the Hostess Mixed Berry Twinkies again?

Answer: No.

Worth Trying?: At least once.

If you love mixed berry flavored snacks, you might like these. While I found them edible, the flavor tastes similar to cough medicine to me. Maybe I would’ve enjoyed it more if the cream was a swirl of half regular cream and half mixed berry. Or perhaps if they tried a mango or tropical punch; now that sounds interesting.
