I've still got two Twinkies left. They're going for a million dollars apiece. And I'll get it, you wait and see.

Yeah, okay, I ate them; they're gone.

we cannot allow big twinkie to fail, think of all the other support industries involved. all the twinkie part suppliers. it would destroy the economy to allow big twinkie to fail.


in all seriousness, I expect Nabisco or whomever puts out little debbie to pick up the line and pick up the slack. Hostess itself has been dead for years.

though I expect the wonder bread thrift store to be dead very soon, and that's a shame.. it was always my go to place for sugary, devoid of any nutritional value pastry snacks.

is there a white house petition I can sign to bring back chocodiles?

dear President Obama, please force whomever takes over the hostess line to bring back chocodiles, or I am seconding from the union!

I think I'd rather just not have real twinkies any more than your paltry northern knockoffs. I mean, look at what you people call bacon.

No, you people call Back Bacon "Canadian Bacon."

Why would WE call anything "Canadian"? Everything here is Canadian! That's the assumption! We call it back bacon like most of the planet. And it's not even that popular. Regular, real bacon, that's the shiat, and that's what we call bacon.


"Canadian Twinkie" sounds like a rather involved gay sex maneuver.

Twinkie the Kid, or "Reggie" as his birth certificate would indicate is a one time halloween photo in which the young sponge cake was dressed as a cowboy. That photo was purchased, and the Twinkie the Kid likeness was licensed from Reggie.

Reggie actually was found deceased in 1982. A hotel detective discovered his body at the Chelsea Hotel in New York. He was found wearing womens lingerie and had a purple thong lodged down his throat. Autopsy report showed a combination death of asphyxiation and herion overdose. Although a cocktail of speed, qualudes, and cocaine was also found in his bloodstream.

At the time of his death Reggie was a roadie for the Rupert Holmes' "Pina Colada" tour.

Somewhere in there, is the last box of twinkies on earth. Believe it or not, Twinkies have an expiration date. One day, life's little twinkie gauge is going to go..ploop. Zero.

Time to nut up, or shut up.

You know, for Secret Service Agents, those guys in the sunglasses don't look too intimidating. After a couple of beers, I believe I can take that pudgy one in the front, as well as the midget on the left.

Oh, and this is me. They don't want none of this:

Bought a box of Twinkies this afternoon, just to sit and eat a couple while watching that glorious, glorious movie.

So it was bye bye yellow dough and creme pie.

Marc_Arsenal: Yes another company will buy the Twinkies Brand but until production starts up again the only Twinkies available will be the ones left on the shelves which last time I checked were none. I'm betting 20 Years from now an unopened box of Hostess Twinkies will probably go for way more than $15.

scottydoesntknow: So are they going to put Twinkie the Kid down? Or just release him into the wild?


He's far too acclimated to living among and having his needs met by humans to stand much of a chance at survival in the wild.

It's unlikely he would be accepted into an established pack and may even be killed by another Twinkie, that is if he didnt starve to death first.

Also, neither RC Cola or DADs Rootbeer have been the same since their production was taken over by others.
