    Please be a "Dear Boy" & run down to the store and pick me up some Tricalcium Phosphate, Sodium Propionate, some Red Dye #40, a small package of Sorbitol,....and some Artificial Flavor.

    And...hurry back because I want to get an early start on baking these pies!
    Tricalcium phosphate is commonly taken as a calcium supplement.

    Sodium Propionate is produced naturally in the body when certain fatty acids and amino acids are metabolized. It is used in bakery products to prevent molding. Mold poses a bigger risk to your health than Sodium Propionate.

    Red dye isn't healthy, but it is used in almost anything red you'd buy from the store. Soda, Jello, Cereals, Nutri-grain bars, Ice cream, Yogurt, etc.

    Sorbitol occurs naturally in apples, pears, peaches, and prunes. It is a commonly used sugar alcohol in gum and other diet foods.

    (From Wikipedia) The compounds used to produce artificial flavors are almost identical to those that occur naturally. It has been suggested that artificial flavors may be safer to consume than natural flavors due to the standards of purity and mixture consistency that are enforced either by the company or by law.



    Can anyone guess what the following ingredients are from?

    Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Dibasic Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Oxide, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Ascorbic Acid, Ferrous Fumarate, Pregelatinized Corn Starch, dl-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate.

    Contains < 2% of: Acacia, Beta-Carotene, BHT, Biotin, Boric Acid, Calcium Pantothenate, Calcium Stearate, Cholecalciferol, Chromium Picolinate, Citric Acid, Corn Starch, Crospovidone, Cupric Sulfate, Cyanocobalamin, FD&C Yellow No. 6 Aluminum Lake, Folic Acid, Gelatin, Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Hypromellose, Manganese Sulfate, Medium-Chain Triglycerides, Modified Food Starch, Niacinamide, Nickelous Sulfate, Phytonadione, Polyethylene Glycol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Silicon Dioxide, Sodium Ascorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Metavanadate, Sodium Molybdate, Sodium Selenate, Sorbic Acid, Stannous Chloride, Sucrose, Talc, Thiamine Mononitrate, Titanium Dioxide, Tocopherols, Tribasic Calcium Phosphate, Vitamin A Acetate, Zinc Oxide.

    May also contain < 2% of: Ascorbyl Palmitate, Maltodextrin, Sodium Aluminosilicate, Sunflower Oil.



    Those are the ingredients from a Centrum brand multivitamin.



    That being said, I'm not defending Hostess, I haven't eaten anything of theirs in years. But, artificial flavors aren't going to affect your long-term health like a high sugar/fat/sodium/cholesterol diet will.

    Wife came home with some twinkies last month, first time i had one in 20 years. They still taste like (can't say that here) dipped in plastic. I am not gonna miss them, but hate to see Americans lose jobs.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Ever been kicked out of a grocery store??? I have!!! One evening, many years ago, a buddy and I went out drinking and got rather hammered. About 6:00 the next morning, still about halfway popped, we ran to the store to pick up some coffee and something for breakfast. Walking down the aisle in the store, what should appear before my eyes but some fool dressed in a Twinkie the Kid outfit. You know that nothing good could come from that situation!!!

    Just saw on CNN that Hostess might resume talks and the end might not be in sight.....yet
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    I saw that too. Sure ruins the eBay profits.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Don't worry, the idiots who are buying Twinkies on eBay aren't the same people who get their "news" from CNN.

    Now if Jon Stewart ran the same story, Twinkie prices on eBay will most certainly plummet.

    While the "Company" is at war with its labor force...and sister unions will not cross thier lines, effectively stopping production...the heavily "leveraged" looted bones of a once (long ago) profitable company, got rattled by the US trustee wanting to overturn (read WIpeout) its basic Capitol structure by switching from chptr 11 to 7...AND wants to compensate the Trustee management team with 1.75 mil in bonuses...now the looters are Challenged for control...all new legal ground, A-La Govermint Motors (Unions favored over Bondholder)......be hard to make this stuff=up...

    Mediation failed.

    Hostess Plans to Liquidate After Mediation Fails - WSJ.com

    Hostess Brands Inc. will continue down the path to a full liquidation after a last-ditch mediation session with its striking bakers' union failed to save the Twinkie maker.
    At a hearing Monday, Judge Drain said "serious questions" loomed over the decision by the company's second-largest union—the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union—to embark on the crippling strike that ultimately brought Hostess to its knees.
    Interesting comments given the Teamsters agreed to their contracts, and their workforce is more mobile and employable due to truck driver shortages. Some of the BCTWGMIU Members questioned their leadership.

    Interesting times we live in. I never bought any of their products.
