When I was a kid, my favorite after-school snack (purchased from a little store
on the way home) was a Twinkie and an ice-cold Coke! Now that I've joined
Medicare, and "come to grips" with my impending mortality (!!), I'm
forced to eat healthier foods...I subscribe to the thoughts of my neighbor, who
reminded me, "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would've
taken better care of myself!"
Maybe this will be a turning point for them and they can actually sell something
that is healthy!
There's no discussion topic so banal we can't drag politics into it.
Hostess went bankrupt amazingly just like GM primarily because of unions and
legacy costs. Truck drivers were not even allowed to unload the delecacies in
Twinkies are one of the basic food groups.
Wonder bread builds strong bodies 12 ways. With all the wars our country manages
to get itself into goodness knows we need strong bodies.I say give
them a bailout.
Well sure, Hostess deserves a government bailout. The French did it for the
Danone yogurt company (which was threatened with being bought by, horrors, an
American company), and surely Hostess Twinkies is the American equivalent of
George W. Bush signed the Wall Street Bail outs and the Auto bail outs. You want a corporate hand out? Go to the Republican party.
The pink snowballs were my downfall.
Eliminating Ding Dongs must be what did them in. Chocodiles could never compare
with the creamy goodness of a Ding Dong!
So funny. But, I know for a fact that twinkies will go moldy. I was rather
bummed when I found a twinkie in my desk drawer only to discover that there was
mold growing on it.
Hilarious article! Thanks for writing it! I laughed until I cried! I hope
Hostess can make a come back. I never ate many twinkies but I loved those
styrofoam bars infused with glue,dipped in chocolate flavored wax things!
Where's Obama when we really need him?He bailed out the banks and the
automakers. Now it's time to save the TWINKIE.
