In this Dec. 14, 2012, photo, artist Nancy Peppin poses with her artwork titled ``The Search for the Darwin Twinkie,'' one of dozens of pieces of art she has created over the years using Twinkies and other Hostess products, in Reno, Nev. A graphic artist by day for slot machine-maker International Game Technology, Peppin doesn't like to eat Twinkies. She uses them to depict popular culture similar to the work of Andy Warhol.
