What will Antonio Burrell deep-fry for us at the picnic now...?

No, I eat my fingers separately.

This deeply saddens me. All of us out there grew up with something favorite from hostess, and now it's going to be all gone. Some of my go to goodies are those yellow cupcakes and the ho ho's. I guess little Debbie is going to rock it now. And I already checked, they are not publicly traded.

Growing up, I was always a Little Debbie Star Crunch fan.

I didn't have my first twinkie until I was 13. My Mother abhorred all those Little Debbie things and other packaged, sugary items marketed to children. I ate bite size frosted mini wheats or honey nut cheerios for cereal being the most sugary cereal my Mother would allow. Strangely enough my first twinkie came from my best friend whose Mother was even stricter. They had a tofurkey one year, nuff said. It was a really memorable experience. I wouldn't have them often after that even, but it was oddly satisfying and I could see why my best friend liked them. It is kind of sad to see them go.

But I learned fast how to keep my head up 'cause I

When I was in high school, my best friend and I would have all night video gaming/TV watching hangouts with lots of Little Debbies and other snack cakes, various sodas (which I still called "pop" back then), etc.

Of course, back then I could do that and still stay skinny. Skinny-ish at least.

(I've not had a Twinkie in years...)

A few of you might remember this. Yes, Veda Pierce.

If I remember correctly, the sponge cake in twinkies is produced by a chemical reaction, not baking. Good riddance.

I will not miss Twinkies. I will miss the idea of Twinkies.

Twinkies will be back. The venture capitalists who own Hostess will no doubt sell the brand names of all their products to others and walk away with a tidy sum. Who loses here? Oh yeah, the workers. <head slap> Don't get me started.

I have been a fan of Paul Krassner for many years. He has definitely has been there and done that.
