    Moderation please. Lest the Dems will regulate Twinkies next!

    In my 67 years I’ve only eaten a twinkie once. It was just ok.

    Actually, they did it just before the company went out of business. The question is what they did to extend it. My understanding is that retailers had been asking Hostess for a while to keep them frozen until they’re delivered to stores in order to extend the shelf life.

    @Jase99

    Can’t see where shelf life could be an issue. I worked in a shop in Cleveland where someone I knew had nailed a Twinkie to the wall TWO YEARS earlier.
    Didn’t it eat, but it sure seemed like new.

    Longer shelf life? They’ll already outlast civilization!!

    I had a couple in the 70’s. Still digesting them…

    “I won’t be eating any of those worthless pieces of garbage. No more ex-Hostess products for me since all Hostess did was destroy their unions.”

    From what I read, one union did it to all of the other employees. And the other unions asked them to agree, so it doesn’t sound like the company was as evil as you’d like to believe.

    But you’re a lib, so facts don’t matter.

    But the Teamsters asked the Bakers not to strike, right?

    Word is the new version will have a SHORTER shelf life. Poor little things are just sponge cake and (originally) lard, which was then exchanged for “mystery filling”.


    Which btw, going through some of my dad’s old formulas from decades ago, and it’s amazing how many call for lard (lots of lard) in those baked goods, that have now substituted polyunsaturated fats, that may be worse for you, especially with all those chemical “stabilizers”.

    “Not suffering himself” might be more accurate.

    Dear Comrade Benson: Twinkies aren’t why people get fat.

    This is such a non-issue. The company failed through the greed of management. It produced products that both wasted food and contributed to the compromised the health of their patrons.

    Greed is destructive.

    The Bakers union decided to kill the company, even when the other unions saw the wisdom of negotiating. So 1500 bakers killed 17000 jobs and now Hostess is made by non union workers. Way to go unions. The shoot yourself in the foot award goes to……
