This tasty snack will shortly be celebrating its 75th birthday.
Yeah, but was it using "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil" 75 years ago?

Yes, it is a twinkie! Sorry for taking so long to reply. I forgot where this thread was, and had to do a search for "twinkie" and hope that someone got the answer.
I think that they used fully hydrogenized vegetable oil back in the good ol' days when twinkies were first made. That, or they just used lard! Mmm.... lard!
I think they also used monosorbates back then, probably # 7. In 1968 they started using the polysorbates.
