No, I would think there is going to be a huge market in smuggling Twinkies across the border.

It does help us feel superior... but then we feel really guilty aboot being superior, so we spell stuff funny and pronounce it weird so you guys can feel superior too.

I totally want a business card that says "Twinkie smuggler" on it, but I'm too terrified it has some double meaning in the gay community.

I didn't realize twinkies were contraband. Canadians sell a lot of maple syrup here completely legally, wouldn't the same be true for baked goods?

The maple syrup is Canadian branded or rebranded and sold in the US. But Twinkies are branded in the US already, so selling Canadian ones here would be a violation of that brand.

Oh well, unlike Beanie Babies, Twinkies can be eaten.

Unless maybe the American manufacturer were to go bankrupt? They would probably be willing to sell their trademarks, or maybe there wouldn't be anyone around to pursue an infringement case.

Now is the time to launch the invasion of Canada. For too long, the polite Canadian menace has scourged America. First they gave us Canadian Bacon, so we could pay a dollar EXTRA for what is sliced ham. Now they rub the twinkies in our face? No more, America! No more!

We shall fight them on the beaches.
We shall fight them in the air.
We shall fight them in the streets.

Pictured above: Bloodthirsty Canadians ready to steal your Twinkies.

We shall fight them until every last Canookistani man and woman are free of the Monarchy. Free to exercise the rights due every free man. And free to give us our God Damn Twinkies.

God Bless America. And God Bless our GODDAMN TWINKIES.

Someone will own that brand, and they will go after anyone who tries to tread on their American territory.

Unless it's the Canadians. In that case they would just own both brands. Plus, they are really polite and nice and wouldn't be mean anyway.

Only buy pre-chewed Twinkies from eBay. Why go to extra effort?

There are still some Hostess products in the vending machines at my work, still at the normal prices. Amazingly they haven't been cleaned out yet.

I mean, I would hate to see you farkers have to turn to vegetables or something!
 
2012-11-20 09:00:10 AM
The execs who own Hostess now are just going to reform under a different name, and sell the brand to themselves.

I doubt there will even be a break in production.

Came here to say this. America can no longer stand idle while Canada flaunts it's Twinkie superiority! This insult must not go unanswered!

My wife picked up a single pack of Twinkies, and we split them with our kids. I haven't had one in like twenty years, and our kids have never had them. My god they were sweet. The sponge cake was nasty and dry, while the filling tasted like it was just about pure corn syrup. Even if someone makes them, I won't be getting them again.
 
2012-11-20 09:05:16 AM
Over the past few days no one, NO ONE has mentioned any sadness over losing Snoballs...where's the love for Sno Balls?
 
2012-11-20 09:05:45 AM
Do you Canadians call Twinkies "Hostess Tube Cakes" like they call Mac and Cheese "Kraft Dinner"?
 
2012-11-20 09:07:05 AM

ZAZ: Are they real Twinkies or some curd-and-gravy based imitation?


Seeing that it's a Canadian based food product I'd guess Twinkie equals orange sponge cake injected with chocolate mousse. Ya know, just like normal.

Bacon =/= ham from the shank
Whiskey =/= rye fermented with awful
Schaffer =/= musician
