There Is A New Twinkie With Green Filling For The "Ghostbusters" Movie

Cool or gross?

Posted on

The "slime" is key lime flavor, in case you were wondering.

Hostess said in a press release that it decided to create the ghostly treat in honor of the new, all-female version of the phantasm fighters, whose film is being released on July 15.

The packages feature the "no ghost" sign from the films.

"Just like Twinkies, Ghostbusters has a loyal fan base that has remained passionate for generations," spokeswoman Ellen Copaken said. "We hope fans are just as excited as we are to help bring this incredible franchise to life."

The company also said it was excited to create a Twinkie for the film because of the iconic line in the original: "That's a big Twinkie."

"It's only natural for Hostess to participate in a partnership with Ghostbusters, given the Twinkie's appearance in the original movie," Copaken said.

But people are a little skeptical about the Twinkie's, shall we say, unique color.

Although, one person wrote on Twitter that it didn't taste much different than a normal Twinkie.

Had a #Ghostbusters Twinkie earlier it was nice but eating the green filling my body just was telling me not too

The Twinkie isn't the only treat fans can celebrate the film with. Hi-C also launched a reboot of its Ecto-Cooler recently to honor the new movie.
