Deep Fried Twinkies in Santa Barbara?

Simple question.
Where can I get a Deep Fried Twinkie in Santa Barbara/Goleta this weekend?

  1. I don't think anywhere. Santa Barbarians tend not to go for the deep fried stuff.

    1. I've only seen them at the County Fair

      1. Agree, you will have to make them yourself on a motel hot plate if you want them in Santa Barbara. Next best things are the onion rings at Hungry Cat, light, sweet and almost donut-y in flavor. Just had the Affogato (expresso and white chocolate) dessert at Ca Dario tonight - perfection. Settle for this and you may never yearn for a DF Twinkie again. Last time I saw those was at the summer time MidState Fair in Paso Robles.
