Something I thought would last longer than me. Well...with twinkies, we really haven't a clue what the life span is.
This is a big indicator of how bad our economy really is...
Hostess files for bankruptcy; Twinkie maker’s financial woes include high cost of ingredients, debt
High costs of flour, sugar and other key ingredients as well as snowballing debt
Aah, that would explain that then.
Around 4-5 years ago I went to the USA with my ol' man. I had been longing to try a Twinkie since seeing them on the film, 'Richie Rich'...
....(you know, the part where the security guard takes it off the obese kid and then eats it in one go)....again
(i'm strange I know!)
So I bought some and fell in love... but it was that sort of love that you can only see now and then and we couldn't speak over the phone. (twinkies
So, fast forward 3 (+or-) years and i'm off to visit my ol' man who now resides in Canada.
I couldn't get hold of ANY.
The 14 days I had out there were soon coming to an end until, on the second to last day.
I got some. (twinkies)
But they were not to my expectations.
It was like going away and leaving your dog behind and then coming back to find he got hit by a car and now he don't run so good.
There was less filling, not as sweet and I was heartbroken to say the least.
I had hyped them up to my friends and work colleagues and they let me down.
So, the whole point of my post was to say that would explain the reduction of EVERYTHING to do with Twinkie and why I left Calgary with a sore heart
and a whole in my stomach only the finest, fullest twinkie could fill.
(maybe this should be in short story's....)
Thanks for the heads up anyway.
It will be better this way.
