    Truthfully if you buy TWINKIES now they will still be edible without refrigeration 25 years from now so...(yeah) stock up. A 25 yr shelf life. That's disgusting and amazing both at the same time.


    Side Note:
    Some day read through the list of ingredients on a Hostess Fruit Pie package.
    See if you can find the fruit in the list of 52 other chemicals, artifical flavors, and preservatives.

    Yep, Hostess filed for bankruptcy and the reason they gave was that ingredients were becoming too expensive. I guess if you have 50 ingredients in a little fruit pie things would get a bit pricey.

    Steel wool makes a lot better fire-starting tender, works just as well when wet, and a lot more can be packed into an area required for a given amount of Fritos - but ya' can't eat steel wool if you get hungry and don't need a fire

    If you're hungry enough you'll eat that steel wool. It's loaded with IRON.

    At least come the Zombie Apocalypse they will be easier to find than Twinkies, cause no one will be grabbing THEM off the shelf. I actually made a trail mix of Fritos and Peanut M&M's years ago. Really was good mix of sweet and salty, but it left the teeth looking like I crawled out of Gollum's cave

    You can light the steel wool with a 9 volt battery.

    Try this! Cut the top of a small bag of Fritos and add a scoop of chili. I was served this from and Native American food stand at a state fair in N.V. tasted great!

    I actually learned this tip about Fritos on "Man, Woman, Wild" a couple of months ago. Pretty cool tip actually. And I personally like Fritos--been eating them since the 50's. Nice to carry "dual purpose" items in your backpack.

    Hostess Fruit Pie vs B&G Fried Pie

    I don't know how widely distributed B&G Fried Fruit Pies are, but many of us here in North Carolina believe they are the best fried pies a person can find. And they do have real fruit in them - lots!

    Are any of ya'll outside of the South familiar with fried fruit pies?

    B&G Fried Pie. None of those up here.

    I just recently came across a flashlight on Ebay with a fire-starting element as part of its dual function.
    It was too expensive though for me to buy it out of curiousity and I'd rather depend on the good ol' firesteel.

    I first learned about this in an arson investigstion class. Instructor got a 50 cent bag from a vending machine and showed us how to burn a car with it.


    BTW, I love my job.

    Years ago my old Pontiac was stolen from my south Texas apartment complex. Cops found it the next day (only about 5-6 hours after I had parked it for the night), and it was already at the impound yard. So, I go to meet the police and see whats left of my 85 grand prix, well, not much to be sure. Poor car was burnt to the frame, tires melted, glass melted, etc. As I was taking a couple of pics, I noticed some potato chips bags in the front seat. I told the officer that thief's must have had the munchies before they wrecked my car. See I thought my car was burnt because Mr. Car Thief wrecked it, nope, the officer told me that car thieves routinely throw a bag or two of chips or whatever onto a car seat and then light 'em up, the grease in chips burns super hot and that is that, instant fire that will burn all night.
