Default Twinkies Insanity!

What is going on? This stuff is all over Craigslist and check out ebay:
twinkies | eBay

I know Hostess is going out of business, but come on! If you look through the pages, you will find boxes of Twinkies for $500!

Yes, this is insane. Until the recent headlines, I thought twinkies went out of business years ago, people still eat this stuff?

Maybe they think there is a nuclear holocaust coming, twinkies and roaches, only things supposed to survive.

I think its more about the 18,000 + families who just became unemployed before the holidays. Not that it would be welcome anytime but it hurts the most to see your kids wondering why they didnt get presents like their friends. In this economy its going to be tough finding new jobs.

I was reading that another company is looking into buying them. It doesn't help all of the people that lost their jobs, but I'm sure that it will make many people happy that are looking for work.

Twinkies have got to be the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. Never liked them. Good riddance as far as I'm concerned.
My husband shed a tear at the thought of no more Ding Dongs though.

I grew up on Drake's coffee cakes, but haven't had one in years.

And who didn't love Wonder Bread? So sad!

I wonder how many (many many) decades those things are going to last, lol?! I know people who collect toys and won't remove them from the packaging, so they're worth more - and Twinkies won't be any different. LMAO, they could be around forever! I'll bet someone will take a bite out of one 50 years from now.

Know what's in a Twinkie?

The Twinkie is a mix of chemical and natural ingredients.

Bleached wheat flour and real sugar made from sugar cane and sugar beets make up a large portion of a Twinkie. But also in the mix are monoglycerides and diglycerides, which replace eggs in the recipe. Hydrogenated shortening replaces butter, and cellulose gum replaces fat in the filling (cellulose gum can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water, so it keeps the filling smooth and creamy).

Given its high ratio of artificial ingredients, you may be tempted to stockpile Twinkies for the Apocolypse, but their lasting power isn't as long as rumored. Officially, a Twinkie's shelf life is a mere 25 days. So you might be better off sticking with the canned goods.

I never even liked Twinkies as a kid, so I'm not going to miss them now. My daughter and I have been looking for those Snowball things forever and have never found them.

LOL, I was more thinking of the human idiot factor. You know there's always someone out there, just waiting to be dared to do something completely ridiculous.
