    Couldn’t believe my wicked ears when I heard you weren’t coming back
    I saw you a decade ago dressed in yellow and wrapped in cellophane pack
    You were content, so sure of yourself, oozing self-confidence and white cream
    You were everything that I had hoped for and everything that I had dreamed

    But then I forgot about you and took for granted that you’d always be there
    Time flew with a wink of an eye and all of sudden I’m living a nightmare
    I went frantically looking for you in the usual corner and designated place
    But all the racks were bare, leaving only haunted memories and empty space

    I will miss you greatly my cloyingly sweet, tooth decaying yellow treat
    Along with your friends that made my gastronomic childhood complete
    I will miss how every bite of you would make my teeth ache in pain
    You were my steady source of sugar in a lonely empty subway train

    Goodbye Twinkie. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

    "Melting" is not what "Diversity" is about.

    Went into a 7-11 this morning for coffee and was told that every Hostess product in the place sold out the day about going out of business his the news!

    Understand there are tens of thousands of dollars worth of that stuff sitting in warehouses. Wonderinf if they're gonna auction them off. A couple of grand for a Twinkie? :)

    Good news for the world.....

    ....but, bad for those who thought they were buying the very last Twinkie, on Ebay.....


    "NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
    Hostess Brands is close to picking a preferred buyer for its iconic Twinkies brand, a move that would be a key step in the eventual return of the snack cake to grocery shelves.
    A source familiar with negotiations says that two private-equity firms, Apollo Global Management (APO) and C. Dean Metropoulos & Co., are the likely winners of this round of negotiations to buy Twinkies."

    Twinkies were so good
    And now we pray to Bimbo,
    "save our sweetest tooth"
