Twinkies (along with other various Hostess brand snack cakes) Return July 15th!

http://gma.yahoo.com/twinkies-set-sweetest-comeback-july-225327898--abc-news-topstories.html

 

I post this somewhat saterically, Dont get me wrong; I often wax nostalgic with fond memories of my youth and Hostess Snack cakes do share their part somewhere in there. The day the Twinkie and Hostess as a whole died, i did shed a metaphorical tear for the loss of that icon of americana that was the... proccessed snack cake.

 

Ok im glad that the Snack cakes that i grew up with are making a return, but im not all extatic about it. Its not worth 50 bajillion news articles about it. 

 

Is it?

 

Maybe im just angry that this news comes out as i just start a new diet plan...

 

*Sigh*

 

What do you say forum?

 

"Greatest comeback since... ever"?

 

or have you already started to have to struggle to "Remember the Wonder"?

I didn't eat Twinkies before, and I'm not going to start.

If only Americans were this interested in their political process.

Never was a fan of Twinkies.

 

Looking forward to Hostess CupCakes though.

no, you really didn't poison the thread; seeing as that was kinda the underlying subtext of my post.

 

Jokes on you.

and no unions to drive up production cost on them this time http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/28/No-Union-Label-on-Twinkie-Return

 

Don't get me wrong, Unions are great.   I only have an issue with the Unions that go to far and bankrupt a company (auto bailouts, hostess, many state and local governments)
