Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

Stinky Twinkies


This gross game is played up front with a few people while the crowd watches. Set up as a simple Twinkie eating contest, where the 1st person to down 3 Twinkies wins. However, some special preparation is needed well in advance. You’ll need enough Twinkies for each volunteer to have three, not knowing that their 3rd Twinkie is rigged. Cut about a half-inch above the brown covering on the bottom of the Twinkie. Carefully spoon out the cream. Then use your imagination.

I’ve seen sardines, ketchup, mustard, relish, onions, Tabasco, cottage cheese, Vienna sausage, Spam, horseradish, etc. Save some of the cream that you took out so you can stick the bottom piece back on after you’ve rigged it. When the contest starts, make sure an adult hands the Twinkies to the contestants because they can’t start on a new one until they’ve finished the one in their mouth.

By the time they get to the 3rd Twinkie, they’re so focused on winning the contest that they could care less what’s inside the last one. Facial expressions are priceless at the end of this game!!!
