Really should have thought about the name chocwave before releasing this stuff. It's childish to laugh at it but shock->choc still sounds like cock.

But I'm guessing the dude who thought of the name is snickering in his lab coat and pushing his glasses up.

It's a sad day when a company can't use "choc" to describe their chocolate products without people making up the idea that it sounds crude.

Can we have a sightings feature on these? :)

I honestly went out to Target and a market to look for these. I can only find the Twinkies box with Bumblebee. No Chocowave or Snoballimus.

Ugh. The coloured ones look about as gross as that Bumblebee candybar with the virulent yellow interior they used to sell. I just hope that the red and blue dyes on those snowballs don't go straight through you. Not a good pair of colours to combine inside one's self...

I do like the Twinkies. The yellow in them looks unaltered this time and Bumblebee, who strikes me as kind of a Twinkie himself as Autobots go, seems the perfect choice to be their spokesbot.

As for Sentinel Prime and CupCakes...seriously, what the hell?? Does someone in charge at Hostess get off on Sentinel and think he's a cupcake? Are all the CupCake cupcakes injected with a dose of E. coli so you can experience your own little treacherous 'surprise' a day or two after eating them?

Even in the movieverse, Kickback remained unclear on the concept.

BeastProwl: Ref. THOSE cupcakes...aahhhhhhhhhh! Oh gawd, I didn't even know these things existed! I actually just used google to confirm it, to reassure myself that the picture wasn't just photoshopped. And no, this is NOT something 'for Sentinel'. Cupcakes are something Megatron ought to be selling because Megatron is cute-proof and can be associated with anything, even disgusting pink strawberry-flavoured confections, without losing his dignity. Sentinel IMO is really only fit to flog something like nasty old-fashioned black licorice candy, the sort that smells funky and weird and like chewing tobacco.

Also, as per someone else's request, I'll try to keep an eye out for any of these Hostess 'special editions' and will report any sightings. Bet I find 'em at Zellers...
