    Its all about the weight and the speed, or force that it hits you with. Although the Twinkie has a better ballistic coefficient and fly through the air better than the HO HO...remember...its mostly about weight.

    The HO HO flying at the same speed as the Twinkie will cause a momentary lapse of consciousness if it hits you. The Twinkie on the other hand, will just bounce off of your noggin and fall to the floor, you will still have the ability to just pick it up and eat it.

    This is no theory, but fact. It was proven to me by my Sister when I laughed at her choice of date for the senior prom...back in 1978.
    But a Twinkie, while lighter, will be propelled with more speed and therefore do equal or greater damage.

    Perhaps, but being lighter will shed velocity more quickley than the heavier Ho Ho, and it will be more wind sensitive.
    Wind sensitve could be a serious consideration such as in my case, when my Sister screamed loudly enough to excert a small hurricane force wind, which luckily for us, was short lived. I'm quite sure that in that case, the Ho Ho would have proceeded to its intended target(my head) and that the Twinkie would have been blown off course due to its lighter weight.

    That would be Bimbo. They just bought Merita. I hope they have the cash or they are going to follow Merita and Hostess into BK. They are playing a little fast and loose. I'm sure the company we contract with is, or one of the companies we work with, is trying to get it too.

    A good argument could be made for them both "going through" equally speedily and doing similar damage.

    Ding Dongs have more knockdown power because they are thrown like frisbees and the chocolate coating expands on impact.

    Dark, dark! The horror of darkness, like a shroud, wraps me and bears me on through mist and cloud, for I have neglected tasting the sweet greasieness of a deep-fried twinkie at the county fair. Ever shall I regret an experience not captured.

    I have always heard that but recently found a few Twinkies in the cabinet that were 7-8 months old. They tasted OK but were VERY stale.

    Yeah, but the ones for sale now are the Original "American Made" twinkies, not the outsourced little foreign cakes!
