Chocolate-Espresso Twinkie, a Hostess Mashup from Bette's Oceanview Diner

Bette's Oceanview Diner calls it a chocolate-espresso Twinkie, but it's really more of a Hostess Cupcake/Twinkie/espresso mashup made in heaven. Dense chocolate cake is piped in three places with an espresso-flavored pastry cream that will provoke fear in your arteries. It's the secret carb weapon at the bottom of your lunch takeout bag that's going to ensure the need for a midafternoon nap under your desk.

The most dramatic difference in a host of characteristics that set this apart from Hostess? Its one-day shelf life.

Bette's Oceanview Diner 1807 Fourth St. (at Hearst), Berkeley, (510) 644-3230.
