Twinkie in a casket

Every year, The Washington Post holds an Easter-time contest for the most creative use of Peeps in a diorama. This year’s top winner was a funeral scene mourning the demise of Twinkies.

“Twinkie: Rest In Peeps” took two women 35 hours to construct. It features a Peeps Pope and mourners, a Twinkie in a casket, and a cemetery with headstones memorializing the demise of other snack cakes (Hostess cupcakes, Ho Ho’s and fruit pies).
