I agree 100%.

Put some Ho-Hos in a bowl and cover them with milk. Heaven is a place on Earth, then.

Yes, the "arrogance" and "greed" of the union members in refusing to accept an 8% pay cut and a 30% cut in benefits.

2.5 billion in sales per year and the union is responsable for killing hostess? Right....
I've been through this before, managment gutting a compnay of the course fo a few years to boost short term stock prices, force a strike/lock out and then claim they are bankrupt. People eat it up too. What aload of crap! They've been engineering this failure for along time. Companies get extra "poor busniess" tax breaks and write offs for failing busniess.

Exactly...now they get 100/100..... But they deserve what they get...they voted and paid the union...I hope they are all happy. Not to worry the union will find them new jobs.

I was told that were not even baked anymore. It was more like they cured in some kind of chemical reaction like Bondo or epoxy resin. Add a polymer creme filling and you're good to go!

I was always a Suzi Q man myself, goes back to comfort food my mother bought me once when I was 5.

I thought about buying some on the way home tonight. It's been years and years since I had one. I figured it would taste like crap and that would just ruin the memory so I passed.

The only Twinkies I'm familiar with are H-D's Twin Cams

The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.
