This is a video from the Popular Mechanics series ‘MADE HERE’ featuring a look inside the Hostess snacks factory. While it’s certainly a delicious video to watch, all the customized automation used to produce the snacks is impressive to see as well. FUN FACT: Did you know Hostess produces approximately 500,000,000 Twinkies a year, and roughly 1,000 a minute? Half a billion Twinkies! And I’ve been responsible for eating about 1,500 of those a year, or four a day. Obviously *licking cream from fingertip* starting now I’m going to try to up my numbers and eat a full two minutes of production this year. “Dream big.” It’s all I know.
