In case you were searching for a reason to buy some Twinkies...

(Alternate title: Don't tell your mom that you're playing with your food.)

I haven't seen Despicable Me 2 yet, but I'm going to have to get around to it one of these days, because:
A - I liked Despicable Me... 1. (I probably don't need to put the number 1 after that, right? Moving on...)

and B - Remember this?

Anyway... to celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release of Despicable Me 2, Hostess is inviting people to dress their Twinkies up as Minions. Because... obviously. I feel like you don't necessarily need an actual reason to dress up a Twinkie as a Minion, but in case you need more incentive than just "and then your Twinkie will look like a Minion," you can upload pictures of your Twinkie Minion to the Hostess Facebook page and be entered to win a daily instant prize that includes Despicable Me 2 on Blu-ray (and if you do win, can I borrow it?) or one grand prize of a home theater system, 30 Blu-rays (probably not all the same one, though), and a year's supply of Hostess products. You can even download printable "Minion accessories" to help you dress up your Twinkie. You know, just in case you don't already have Twinkie-sized Minion accessories laying around your house.

Click here to visit the Hostess Facebook page, or click here to just cut straight to the chase and work on entering the contest. And if you win a year's supply of Hostess, I would like a bag of chocolate Donettes. Please and thank you.

Tomorrow-ish (or maybe Sunday. We'll see,) I'm going to post some pictures of the fabulous Christmas craft Lucas made for our family, so stay tuned!

  1. i just bought despicable me 2 on saturday because my brothers and sister were out of the country when it came out and haven't seen it yet. one of my nephews was terrified of it, so head's up for lucas? maybe? the younger one loved it, though.

    also, twinkies are those things that sound so good in my head, but then when i actually eat one i'm just like um... okay... can i have a hoho? and powdered donettes are definitely my crack and i could live on them forever. i am trying to "watch what i eat" but i think i may need to turn a blind eye for a day or two and stuff my face with hostess products. (also, totally random, but my sister and i hosted a costume party and almost went as a twinkie and cupcake to be "hostesses" but the we went as raggedy ann and andy instead because they made us nostalgic. two of our friends came as minions, though, so our party was basically almost this post in real life.)
