On If you couldn’t get a Twinkie, what would you reach for?

The question has never been, "If you couldn’t get a Twinkie, what would you reach for?"

The question has always been, "What will you do when you can't reach your Twinkie?"

If you couldn’t get a Twinkie, what would you reach for? 25 sugar packets?

A Girl Sout cookie. Very good and helps the Girl Scouts. Buy extra, freeze them so you can have them year around.

A twinkie and a glass of milk.....every now and then.......is not that bad. Probably much better than soda consumption every day.

Banana Flips were my favorite then banana moon pies. I think I had Twinkies a couple of times. My mom didn't keep junk food in the house.

Another song from the Humble Pie creator (S Marriot). Song of a Baker. Think he is in the Rock n Roll hall of fame.

"Humble PIe? I saw a Foghat LP vinyl at a sale today."

My mom used to see Artie at Foghat concerts. She was a roadie for Foghat in the '70's. Slow Ride is the anthem of the '70's.

If asked in a gay bar, you will get very different responses.

Oh, and the correct OTS answer is -- a Klondike bar.

LP's? Not worth much unless the jacket is pristine. And then . . . still not so much. A friend had 250,000 burn up in a fire. Insurance barely paid a buck apiece for 'em.

Bleah! Even when I was a kid I found Twinkies repulsive. It was like trying to choke down a kitchen sponge with a Crisco filling.

LIttle Debbie. That's the money maker. Agreed with theoljhawk. Hostess has been to pricey for years and the unions have killed the Twinkie.

Have you people ever heard of baking? If they do in fact close, learn to bake and make your own!!!!!

When I was in jail I used to order this thing called a Honey Bun from commisary. I don't know if Hostess made it but it seems likely. I usually don't touch garbage like that but it was the only way not to go to bed hungry. The food is pretty good in there but they only feed you enough to keep you alive.

Something tells me that rich Nebraska Furniture guy might jump in and save this one. Maybe he'll explain what Wonder bread is made of. It's definitely not bread. If you smush it between your fingers you can form it into a little square that looks like a sugar cube.

Damn, with fewer heart attacks, my stock in AstraZeneca (Crestor) may drop.

I haven't eaten a twinkie in 20 years, but now I really want one.

"That's because Pontiacs don't last as long as Twinkies." Parrot

Whoo!

Can't ever remember eating one, although I probably did at some point. They just look nasty.

A fresh glazed doughnut, now that's a different story.

Jebus. What an overblown story. You people will get your twinkies. Just wait for the liquidation and selling of the brands. And then there will be another overblown story when twinkies are back on the shelf. Pontiac didn't even get this much run when it failed.

well I dang sure don't want to reach for whatever Klumma was reaching for...

I do feel bad for those who lost their job but as for the loss of the "poison" hostess sold I can only hope no one picks up the brand and continues producing it. Twinkies are nothing but white poison and that other crap isjust poison with another food coloring in it.

The couple of times in nearly 50 years that I've had a Twinkie I wish I hadn't. I don't understand the appeal. I can't remember the last time I had a Hostess product of any kind.

About a week ago I was thinking it had been quite a while since I had had a twinkie. I bought grapes... :-(
