Oh Noes...not my Twinkies ...


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.
(s&f)

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 can't talk)

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.

R.I.P Twinkie

you know, twinkies are something that have been taken for granted all these years, i had noticed but could not pinpoint the change myself though i did remember them being much lest moist and gooy, a lot of the goodness of the original twinkie now that i think about it was taken. But had i not read your entry i would not have noticed. However.... i think that this twinkie is still on my books as one of the worlds most perfect foods... because if its less sweet, with less filling it must be better for you righ>? DONT YOU DARE DISAGREE LET ME HAVE MY DELUSIONS lol

OMG... the poor twinkies. BUT they can make more of them that way at least they lasted this long right>?

oh no... i hope the government bails them out they can do that right>?
twinkies should be the new currency!

No more drowning my sorrows in a twinkie binge...


No more hiding the box of twinkies in my shopping cart under a pile of lettuce and carrots....

No more stashing twinkies in the freezer behind the frozen broccoli...

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa........

Wonder if our Government will bail them out. Or, provide a new division of social services for those going cold turkey from withdrawals....a Hostess 12 step program at the very least...

There will always be a place in my heart for the twinkie.. but it will be reserved only for the Original Twinkie!

I can't get hold of them in the supermarkets or the shops near me, which meant I could only have what I bought overseas so it didn't matter how unhealthy they were. Mmwaa ha ha!

Isn't the Twinkie an American Icon?

Do your laws not state that the Twinkie will be saved if bankruptcy should occur?
Because they should!

Yes. They will have to make a program for hostess adicts. There for they should just bail hostess out and save everyone from going thourgh the withdrawls and be stuck eating little debbie snack cakes who copies hostess cakes anyway. Who was first? hostess or little debbie?? Maybe I will look it up.

The first Little Debbie Cakes were made in 1960, while Hostess Cup Cakes have been around since 1919

There actually is a petition! Petition

One of my local radio hosts started that petition. It has gone viral within the last couple of days. Rush Limbaugh talked about it on his show and claimed Obama made the petition himself
The radio station has been having a hay day with that little gem.

Funny thing is.. that is the first thing that came to mind when I heard about Hostess going out of biz.

Could this have a deeper meaning?
