Blue plus yellow makes... something spongy, I guess.

Hi, everybody.

Today I tried blue raspberry Twinkies.

No, really.  Apparently they're a thing.

It's some X-Men promotional idea.  They come in blue raspberry and strawberry. 

Since I've loved the deliciously fake sweetness that is "blue raspberry" ever since childhood, I decided my life would not be complete without trying this.

They are very, very blue inside.
If you're squeamish about massive amounts of blue food coloring entering your system, just close your eyes first.  Although, you still have to get the little package open, which means you'll see something similar to this:

It's not as bad as it looks.
As long as you go into it realizing that you are about to consume something with almost no nutritional value whatsoever, something which could probably sit on the shelf until 2095 and still be relatively okay, you'll be fine.

Since I loved sweet blue raspberry stuff as a child, I actually thought these were ok.

Bonus (maybe): One of the ingredients is "Beef Fat".

And, with all the blue food coloring, just so you know, I'm still waiting to find out about the end results.  (You're welcome).

That has to be about the grossest thing I've ever seen. No wonder it's best to eat them with your eyes closed.

nonamedufus: They weren't bad at all, I have to admit. I have a growing urge to try the strawberry ones.

P.S. As far as the last part of my post, the results are in: Um... YES, let's just say it's true that the colors really do equal green.
