Twinkie shortage could cause deep-fried dilemma

Posted: Updated:

A Texas State Fair icon may be in danger and a question is being asked: what will happen to deep fried Twinkies now that the Hostess Bakery is liquidating?

The people who've sold more than 80,000 of them over the last decade are wondering the same thing about the beloved dessert.

Now the future of this beloved fair food is in jeopardy.

Vendors are hoping another baker will buy the rights to the dessert in time for next year's fair.
