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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

More nutritious than a Democrat full of empty promises

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.

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.

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

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

"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.

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

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.

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

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