This Is What Twinkies Are Made Of

It’s not quite the Four Loko ban, but Twinkie Gate has been keeping us entertained with those obscene eBay sales and other miscellaneous run-off hilarity, like this…

Photographer Dwight Eschliman created the series entitled “37 or So Ingredients” individually depicting everything that goes into the making of a Twinkie. Eschliman based his list on the components listed in Steve Ettlinger’s book “Twinkie, Deconstructed.” Each ingredient is photographed on a clear glass dish with a gray backdrop” Animal Shortening, Modified Cornstarch, Riboflavin, Polysorbate 60, Soy Lecithin, Niacin, Iron, FD&C Yellow #5, Monoglyceride, Red 40, Cellulose Gum, Diglyceride and Other Random Shit We’ve Never Heard of What the Hell Did I Just Eat?
