Twinkies As Art

RENO, Nev. (January 22, 2013)--Nancy Peppin is a Nevada artist who incorporates the cream-filled Twinkies snack cakes in her work.

So, when Hostess Brands announced plans to shut down, Peppin bought 12 boxes of Twinkies, saying she needed the "art supplies."

Peppin has created everything from a Last Supper with Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Ho Hos, to a pinup calendar with Miss Twinkie.

Peppin isn't too worried about her favorite subject disappearing for good.

She's confident another company will pick up Twinkies and continue production.

She says Twinkies are the "ultimate American food icon."
