I, Twinkie

by Jeffrey Tucker

Oh how everyone (of a certain class and income) makes fun of the Twinkie, the ultimate symbol of modern food decadence and phoniness. I don't get it. Have the critics ever tried one? They are so appealing and delicious: light, spongy, sweet, and creamy, all in a tiny package.

The news that the parent company Hostess was going out of business caused a huge run on Twinkies in my own community. Every store had an empty space where they should have been. The preppers were right: we should have stocked up for emergencies like this.

205209 Way to try to make Twinkie hate an elitist thing. It doesn't matter what bracket you come from; IMO Twinkies are shit and will kill you slowly over time if you eat them on any kind of a regular basis.

Poor bosses having to share profits with an organized workforce, sob sob. What more can I say? They had to make themselves feel better by raiding the coffers, taking $1-2M with them for as little as one month's work over the last year.

6464 First of all, Twinkies are not going to pass from the scene. They will most likely be manufactured by another company.
This reminds me of the light bulb frenzy. "OMG, better go out and stock up on light bulbs, 'cause you ain't gonna be able to get them anymore!". Yyyyyeah, how'd that turn out?
205209: We're going to die whether we eat Twinkies or not. Nobody gets out of this world alive.

IMO, Zingers are better than Twinkies anyway.
