ZeroCorpse: I might eat one Twinkie per year. Then I remember why I only eat one Twinkie per year. The mediocre flavor isn't worth the empty calories. There's absolutely nothing of value in a Twinkie. They're solid-baked chemical sludge.
firefly212: lionfish: Irrelevant, Walmart's brand "Great Value" has already stolen the Hostess technology and cloned all their snacks, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Hohos, cupcakes, even the long lost Hostess "O's" (Rasberry filled white dohnuts) are back on the shelves at walmart and are indistinguishable from the actual products they copy. All the old hostess brands are there, even dunkin stix. And they are FAR cheaper than hostess ever sold them for.I'll shop at a WalMart half past when I die. I'm not giving my money to people who use it to keep wages artificially low by putting American labor in competition with Chinese slaves.
verbaltoxin: We buried you. There was a coffin, a gravestone...the whole thing.I knew you were alive, I knew it. Everybody said I had to let you go. I love you. You're the love of my life.You said you'd be right back.Well I'm sorry too...but I had to move on.[www.nypost.com image 524x615]
HotWingAgenda: Gifted Many Few: I just check ebay. Twinkies are miraculously going for a reasonable price. Except one guy, charging $500 for a box that expired 3 months ago.That's the last box of REAL Twinkies before the factory shut down. It's like selling the last six pack of original Coca-Cola from before New Coke.
Zebulon: The Hostess brand was bought by an *Investment company* that doesn't even own a bakery. They will end up sitting on the Hostess name, then trying to re-sell it to someone else for a profit.
CarnySaur: The winning bid is a joint venture by private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co.[lostified.com image 600x400]
Iczer: unlikely: wow no one saw that coming that's amazing i am so surprisedI'd wager there are a few idiots around the country that're wondering if they can declare bankruptcy now after spending $1,048 per Twinky on eBay...
Pointy Tail of Satan: Great. Now there is going to be shortage of embalming fluid. Or did they take that out?
PsiChick: scared coward: subby made me think of http://www.theonion.com/articles/bush-our-long-national-nightmare-of- p eace-and-pros,464/...That is...holy fark. Was Bush that obvious pre-9\11? Or is this writer just psychic or something?
Bill_Wick's_Friend: Twinkies get all the good press.Bears need love too.
