    My Mom worked at Hostess for many years. Twinkies were over rated then.

    Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's were better.

    Bought a box a couple of days ago and have been munching on them, great with coffee.

    We missed on Twinkies but picked up the bread line. My job is going to get more interesting in a few weeks. Hopefully after vacation. It's amazing what a competitor going out of business does for everyone else.

    What mad genius came up with THAT idea? Sounds like a state fair thing - Minnesota leans towards nanny-state, but they leave fair vendors alone when they deep fry anything and everything.

    Ding Dongs are tasty indeed, but there's just something about a Twinkie. "Sugar, enriched flour, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, polysorbate 60 and yellow dye #5 - just everything a growin' boy needs."

    Never had a Twinkie, they sound like a mouthful of sugar. There is a unique treat in State College, Pa. called deep fried stickie buns I have yet to try also.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Now you've done it. This thread will be degenerating into a

    Twinkies/Ho Ho's war.

    Thanks!

    Mods, keep a careful eye on this one.

    Here's a photo of my two unopened Twinkie's, still in packages dated 2009. (Cautiously revealing the odd side of PPKheat )
