    Life without Twinkies?

    What are we to do??? Hostess is going out of business!!! How do we live without Twinkies, Wonder Bread, Devil Dogs, Snowballs??? No more Snowballs????? - I love those things! I've eaten the generic brands of them, but somehow, they are just not quite the same. Such sad news....

    I was never a really big fan of Twinkies - but Snowballs and Devil Dogs was another story. Maybe it was a chocolate thing with me. I love chocolate cake, but can do just fine without chocolate candy. I know - I'm weird........

    Oh goodness - I forgot Ring Dings - another chocolaty favorite.
    I wasn't always skinny - yet I ate these forbidden treats anyway. I've been hooked on them since I was a teen! And yes - Hostess really did make them way back in ancient times when I was still a kid.

    Seriously tho - now 18,500 people are out of work - and that is sad.

    Oh no! Who makes Funny Bones? Hope it isn't them. Gotta check. Okay Drakes makes them. Whew!

    Remember how Archie Bunker loved Twinkies?

    I admit I do partake of these type things on occasion. There are times when I just barely make it through the work week and head to the A+ Sunoco for junk food.

    We will have to find you a replacement for the Twinkies

    Not so fast, Ms Funny Bones. Drake's is owned by Hostess! I wonder if they will shut down too?

    I hope so. One of the Chicago area bakeries is about a 10-minute drive from my house. And without Hostess treats, we can't have this...

    Oh My! I rarely eat any of those little cakes anymore but I used to eat them alot. It's hard to choose my fav, probably Snowball or Twinkies. I'm diabetic and really shouldnt ever eat them again but they sure did taste good to me. I bought some Twinkies at a bread outlet a month or so ago when clerk said Twinkies etc was closing... thought I'd have some for old times sake... sad for everyone involved. I hope some company takes over and makes all of them again.

    When I was little my dad worked for a construction co and took his lunch. He had snowballs for his dessert and always saved me one. Another childhood icon bites the dust. Maybe Lil Debbie will buy the recipe.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

  15. Hostess products for me go in the same category as peanut butter and jelly. I have never eaten any - not a Twinkie or a Snowball. (That is not to say there are not lots of other sweet and disgusting things I've eaten!) It is about the texture.

    Hostess has been losing market share (and money) as healthy eating has become more of an emphasis. It is hard to make the case for a healthy Twinkie.

    MOFF - the story of your dad brings a tear to my eye...such a sweet memory!
