    My son just came back from Wal Mart with some of the twinkies that are now being sold!

    Yummy to the tummy...

    So, do you like or dislike twinkies, and have you missed them?

    :D

    Too bad I'm back to eating healthy and working out. Can't be eating that and disrespect my coastal amigos on the sand.

    Yeah, I think he was one of the guys on ebay trying to sell them for $600.00.

    But, what do you expect from someone that lives in Dallas? That's how they get rich! They prey on us poe folks.

    I heard the twinkies were smaller than what they used to be sold at the same price.

    They are smaller but cost less and last a few more days.

    Just for fun:

    Excerpt from: What Exactly Is In A Twinkie Anyway? (LIST)

    Posted November 16, 2012 by Dimas Sanfiorenzo for Global Grind Staff

    Scroll down and find out exactly what is inside a Twinkie!

    Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour

    When you hear the word "enriched" you automatically think good stuff. This, folks, is not true. This informative blog on GlobalHealingCenter explains why:

    "The reality is that many of the good things that were originally in it have been stripped out through refinement. The components added back to the flour are actually toxic!
    Iron is a “nutrient” added to enriched flour, except the type of iron added is not really a nutrient at all, but is considered a metallic iron. Metallic iron is not bioavailable to the human body and was never meant to be consumed.
    Enriched flour is not absorbed by the body as wheat or a grain, in which case your body could use the energy slowly and effectively, but as a starch.
    That is because the wheat germ has been stripped from the flour; the FDA states that enriched flour cannot have more than 5% wheat germ."
    So, really, it's just a bunch of starch, which turns into sugar. (Not a great start.)

    Water
    Water is the best stuff on the planet. No beef here.

    Sugar
    Not very good for you, but you can't be surprised, right? It's a Twinkie.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup
    Basically, if a food is processed, it is jam packed with this stuff, which is a sugar substitute made from corn. This stuff is brutal and one of the reasons why our obesity rate is so high in the United States.

    Partially-hydrogenated Vegetable Oil

    Also known as Trans Fats, also known as utter and complete ****. Basically Trans Fat is an engineered product that is unhealthier than any other real oil out there. MayoClinic says:
    "Scientists aren't sure exactly why, but the addition of hydrogen to oil increases your cholesterol more than do other types of fats. It's thought that adding hydrogen to oil makes the oil more difficult to digest, and your body recognizes trans fats as saturated fats."

    Eggs
    Eggs are high in cholesterol, but whatever. Eggs are really in anything cakey.

    Dextrose
    Just a fancy way to say more sugar that's not natural. This stuff is plain awful for you, folks.

    Soy Lecithin
    Soy lecithin is an ingredient that is found in most baked good products. It's usually found in small doses and is shown not to have many ill effects.

    Salt
    Probably just a sprinkle.

    Mono and Diglycerides

    Ahhhh, poison! This stuff is usually used to combine ingredients containing fats with those containing water. Apparently this stuff is important because it will extend a food's shelf life. (You know that myth about Twinkies never going bad, right?)

    Cellulose Gum
    What can we say about Cellulose Gum other than that it's a product that is commonly found in hair gels and laxatives? Yummy.

    Sodium Stearate

    Sodium stearate is one of the most common ingredients that you'll find in soap. Double yummy. Now, to be fair to Twinkies, they stress that there is less than 2 percent of this kind of stuff in the product, but, still.

    Polysorbate 60

    Polysorbate 60 is a product that's found in most artificial creams (what, you thought Twinkie filling was 100 percent natural?) It is also commonly found in other delicious items like mouth sore medicine and rocks.

    Calcium Sulfate

    Similar to Polysorbate 60, Calcium Sulfate is found in pleasant things like rocks, rocket fuel and sheet rock.

    I picked up a couple of boxes yesterday and brought them into work. It was really kind of weird. I brought them in and asked everybody if they wanted one and only one person said yes. Everybody else was like, no.. no thanks. I figured I'd just sent them down and let them get eaten and after a few days, maybe they would be gone. Started to wonder if anybody really missed them at all.

    15 minutes later, I went back for another cup of Coffee and they were entirely gone! Bunch of Slackers!!!


    LOL...........

    They didn't want to seem greedy, so they went on a "bathroom break" and gobbled them all up.

    At my last job, when someone brought in donuts, we just sent an email that they were in the breakroom. They were usually gone in minutes.

    Got me a couple of boxes also. They are smaller and the underside is a bit darker. Something is off in the taste but can't nail down what just yet :p

    I have been waiting patiently for Ding Dongs tho :)
