The Twinkie Lives!

Very good, now... what's a twinkie? 

It's a golden sponge cake with some kind of cream filling.

 

I'm going to make myself a twinkie weiner sandwich as soon as they come back, been so long since I had the disgustingly delicious treat.

Good, now we can continue to indulge on processed cake as we continually get fatter.

 

I've never actually had a Twinkie in my life, which one my consider blasphemy considering I live in a country very close to America.

Twinkies are relatively over-blown for what they truly are.  They don't even taste all that great.  Other Hostess snacks are pretty decent though. :P

Hardly, I've never had one either.

Speak for yourself man - for me they're just sweet enough to be heavenly but not so heavy that they demolish my stomach in too high a quantity like certain candies or chocolate do.

I've only ever had two in my entire life. It was like little cake angels of yumminess casting wonderful spells in my mouth. Wish we had them over here at a reasonable, not £5 per box due to shipping cost.

Come to think of it, I do think that the last Twinkie I had potentially sat on the shelf for far too long. :P

Honestly. Twinkies aren't my favorite snack. I admit they are good but Ho-Ho's man. You don't even WANT to challenge their taste.

Because it is relevant to the topic. A series of commercials all featuring this punch-line was probably the main reason Twinkie's are so well remembered. I can't argue with the results, these commercials are great.

Twinkies will never be the same to me. Ever since the debacle they've been a symbol of union busting.

I'm not trying to get political, but some facts are in order: For those that don't know, Hostess was purchased by a PE firm in a leveraged buyout. The PE firm then moved the loans they took out to buy Hostess onto the company's books. With the sudden debt load, the company began to crumble and repeatedly asked the workers to take cuts, which they did, until the company pretty much demanded they give up their bargaining rights. The union refused and the plant shut. Of course the PE guys didn't care. They got rich off of the deal and got to unload the debt, and collect what was left over after the bankruptcy sales.

The investors kept their money and the workers got the shaft.

Now a new PE firm owns the brand and has stated that they will NOT hire union workers.

Well apparently Southern Iowa doesn't care, for the most part Hostess wasn't even dominant here in the first place, we have Little Debbie instead, which I definitely don't mind.  This also means we've had their knockoff of Twinkies to keep us going. :D
