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 [^] ?
