Freezing Snack Cakes? Junk Food

Hi there,

Well, we've been buying our expensive whole wheat bread at the local Hostess outlet - and racking up $ on our punch card. We're almost to the point where we've got a coupon for $5 off.

I'm kicking around the idea of splurging on the junk food - like Twinkies and Ho-ho's - because we never buy that stuff in everyday life.

So, has anyone ever tried freezing these things? I guess I'd stick them inside freezer bags or rubbermaid before freezing.

Think it would work? Will junk food act like regular bread in the freezer?

You can just toss them in the freezer in their packages--works fine. And they're delicious frozen, btw.

My dad used to buy them from the bread thrift store and toss them in the freezer. They tasted just like normal.

They do freeze well but I do throw them into a plastic bag for keeping purposes. They actually go pretty fast but never hurts to double wrap...

I talked to the cashier at the Tastykake Outlet, he said everything can be frozen except powdered donuts.
