zombieland, woody harrelson, zombies, movie

From what I’m hearing, people are loving Zombieland — and Woody Harrelson’s character in the movie has a lot to do with the praise.

As we mentioned earlier, the hardcore vegan made sure that his special dietary needs were met on the set; including the Twinkies his character so desires in the film.

“My character is searching for the ultimate comfort food, which to him is not another human being but a Twinkie,” the 48-year-old actor told the NY Times. “I’m not a Twinkie lover. I don’t do sugar or dairy either. When we finally shot my Twinkie-eating scene in the movie, they had to give me a specially made mock Twinkie made of corn meal. It could spur a healthy Twinkie revolution.”

That actually doesn’t sound half-bad — though I wonder what they used for the filling? Asked about what food the actor might seek out should the world come to an end, he said, “I’d be searching for a mango. Or an avocado. It really is a tough call between the two.”

I’d go with avocado.

    Just discovered Dillos, vegan Twinkies. They are good, but don’t hold a candle to the chocolate-covered Choco-Dillos, which are dangerously tasty. I found them at VeganEssentials.com.

    I made an organic healthy, vegan & delic twinkie on request for bk launch (Twinkies Deconstructed). Vegan white chocolate filling, naturally sweetened cake, no yellow glow. Nightline picked it up, and recently BetterTV.com too. I refused to taste a Twinkie -figuring I ‘d heave, then no recipe testing possible.
