Media honors Bennett’s deep-fried Twinkies

When Dave Bennett put on his chef hat to help United Way reach their goal, he didn’t dream his Deep-fried Twinkies would become a media star.

Blount County’s Ken Schwall of WBIR-TV, Channel 10, found out about the sweet dessert at the United Way of Blount County Annual Hamburger Luncheon and featured them in his report. He has now chosen the Bennett’s Deep-Fried Twinkies as the Food of the Year for 2007. Check the WBIR-TV website this week for a link.

In addition, Bennett will be featured on WBIR’s “Live at Five” cooking segment between 5-6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10, to demonstrate the fine art of frying Twinkies.
