Run on Twinkies: Iconic
treats never looked so good

Chicago Tribune, by Julie Wernau

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/16/2012 3:19:56 PM

Twinkies never looked so good or moved so fast. With the announcement that Hostess is going out of business, people are apparently stocking up on Twinkies by the armload. The liquidation doesn´t necessarily mean Hostess products will become extinct. But Hostess lovers aren´t taking any chances. A ten-count box of Twinkies has been listed on eBay for an opening bid of $200,000, with a buy-it-now for $250,000. Dozens more listings appear at more reasonable prices -- for now. Chicago-area onvenience stores are reporting that they´ve sold out of the blonde gooey pastries

Once upon a time, I found a recipe for a Twinkie cake. I cleaned out my local grocery store of all their supply. That thing required 18 packages.

Trust me on this. Some other company will pay a ton of cash for the Twinkies brand. Plus, they have a half-life of about seven years.

... they have a half-life of about seven years.

One report on the Twinkie Ebay "new capitalism" said the seller identified HIS Twinkies as a particularly good investment, because the "use by" date isn´t ´til 2057!

(Personally they looked AND TASTED much better when I got my start in the market, some 50 years ago. At the time, they were 13 cents for a 2-pack, no sales tax. But I wax nostalgic...)

Don´t count them out just yet. It is entirely possible that the employees can engineer an
employee owned and operated business and get funding from a BDC ( Business Develop Company )that sees value in the situation. I guarantee that the first document would include a mandate that no union ( other than the Teamsters ) is allowed to participate, so in effect, it could only happen in a right-to-work state. This would not be the first time that employees of a busted company gave
it new life under their own ownership. and the employees would be a much happier bunch of folks. Understandably, in order for this to work, the members of the Bakers union would have to leave the Union. Possibly they would do so in order to run their own business and their own lives.

Hostess isn´t a big enough company and so they have been run out of business (excessive regulations, high taxes, and continued rotten economy) by the socialists who don´t want free enterprise to exist anymore.

I´m not all that depressed about Hostess. I was never a twinkie fan, however, many years ago I used to enjoy their berry pie. I´ve tried several other brands of those type of pies, but always came back to Hostess. In recent years the quality of those confections dropped noticeably. I quit buying them.

Twinkies... brings back happy memories of the halcyon days when my 125 pound German Shepherd and i would stop at the corner market --they, and other shops, and banks etc, would let our magnificent dog, affectionately known as "Mr. Perfect" come inside-- and buy a package of those tasty treats which we´d share on the walk home.

We didn´t do this often. It was a special treat.

My first favorite food was the
Twinkie. Mother would come back from the grocery with a treat food for each of us kids. I hoarded my Twinkies like they were gold. Some of the biggest fights in our household was over "Who ate my Twinkies?!" I now look at them and wonder what I ever saw in them. Now, to me, they are oily, spongy, doughy sugar lumps filled with greasy white sugar goo. Growing up just sucks!

Mom swears the first Twinkies she had in Chicago in the 30s had a banana flavored filling. She bought them for us, but pined for the banana. My favorite memories are of all the children I introduced Twinkies to before they were two (I never had my own children). Man filling in the ears, down the diapers, in the belly button. It was so much fun to eat them when the kids were that young. And yes, I bathed the kids, else the moms would have hated me. I can still hear my sister, 20 years ago about her twins "you gave each of them a WHOLE Twinky?".

"The first Twinkies were quite different from the ones we know. For one thing, they were made with banana cream filling, not vanilla. But in World War II, there was a banana shortage, and vanilla became the standard flavor."

Growing up in the burbs of Philadelphia, we were a Tastykake family. I´ve always preferred Tastykake products and thought they tasted moister and more home-made than Hostess baked goods. But because they were foreign to our household, they became more desirable at times.

My favorite Hostess memory is from Sunday School 50 years ago. When it was your Birthday, you went up front in the basement Sunday School room and a fake cake made of plaster of Paris and battery operated candles would be carried out and the classes would sing Happy Birthday. You then were presented with a package of Hostess Sno Balls-- usually white, but in later years, I think they became pink. That thick, coconut-embedded gelatinous (rubbery, really) goo, covering dry, chocolate, cream-filled cake, seemed like the most exotic treat in the world.

I think I´ll have to seek out some Sno balls tomorrow to once again experience that way more innocent time in my life....

A man suspected of shooting dead at least three people at two separate Jewish centers in Kansas City on the eve of Passover screamed out ´Heil Hilter´ as he was arrested this afternoon. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

Saturday was an excellent opportunity for apparel manufacturer Under Armour to take center stage, with logos positioned all over Spieth’s sprawling body.

Today, the image would have gone viral in an instant: The president of the United States, dripping wet in swim trunks before a throng of excited beachgoers, trading a look and a laugh with an attractive woman in a polka-dot bikini. But well before the Internet´s relentless rationing of spontaneous fame, the 1962 photo of President Kennedy at Santa Monica´s beach made quite a splash. For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

LONDON— With support growing for independence just months before Scots decide whether to break up with Britain, outsiders are weighing in with impassioned calls to keep the three-century-old union together. British officials from across the political spectrum, European Union leaders, corporate executives and retired military commanders have made their cases. Even David Bowie registered a plea for Scotland to “stay with us.” But there has been conspicuous silence from one major player with a lot to lose if Scotland secedes: the United States. A vote for independence would dismember Washington’s closest and most important ally, leaving behind a not-so-great Britain at

That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
