My kids found a store near here that sold them. I bought one for them to try, they both had a mouthful, spat it out and said it was so faarrrkkkking sweet it was inedible.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Alas, yes, it appears that Twinkies, Ho Ho's, and Ding Dongs, are all on the endangered species list, until their next re-incarnation.
America's pantheon of heart-disease, diabetes, and obesity icons will have to rely on just "Happy Meals" and "Double Whoppers with Bacon," for a while ?
The Twinkie's history is truly wonderful; where else can you find the combination of:
... a successful 1979 double-murder defense (ending in a verdict of involuntary manslaughter ... due to Dan White's mental state, at the time of the murders, being judged to be incapable of pre-meditation) of a San Francisco Mayor and City Supervisor in which excess Twinkie consumption was part of the defense [^] ...
... and ... the sudden upsurge in a sweet-treat's popularity related to a "replace vanilla with original banana flavor" promotional marketing venture by the Hostess brand associated with the 2007 remake version of the King Kong movie [^] ?
