UPDATE: Twinkies Only at Oakville Grocery

Dean & DeLuca are adding hot dogs, cupcakes.

UPDATE: Monday, Feb. 25, 3 p.m.

Want Twinkies? Oakville Grocery, on St. Helena Highway (Highway 29) in Oakville, is your place.

Want hot dogs and cupcakes? Go to Dean & DeLuca Market in St. Helena.

Hopefully that clarifies the new menu items we first reported on in Patch Friday.

Bon appetit!

ORIGINAL STORY: Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, 2 p.m.

Dean & DeLuca Market in St. Helena is not normally associated with hot dogs and Twinkies.

That could change, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Chronicle's SFGate says DeLuca will be adding both hot dogs and Twinkies in a new menu.

Sounds delicious. The Twinkies will be made by the chef, described as "upgraded chef-style as dense, almond honey cake stuffed with vanilla orange blossom pastry cream.". I found that information by reading the article before making a comment.

They might have helped make it easy to go out of business? The teamster driver's took wage & benefit cut's to keep the company going.The head CEO increased his income 750.000 to 3.5 million in 1 yr . Also the top 10 top cat's get to split over 90 million, not bad money for destroying a company. They walk out smelling like a rose,they also get the right's to sell there product line to other food company's more million's and the worker get's the shaft . I don't know why the government did not get involved in this Big Business crime.

Hostess made offers at the end to save jobs. The union and the members made there bed on this one. If they had shut up and gone back to work, they would not be in a tightening job pool.

Real Twinkies are made of banana flavored sponge cake with regular whipped cream filling. That is probably copyrighted though.
