I heard a story on NPR a few weeks ago about how Hostess had to file for bankruptcy and it may be an end to Twinkies. While I have not eaten a Twinkie in forever, I was suddenly sad that a whole new generation of kids (mine included) would never taste a Twinkie.  I grew up with the tasty cake treat. We only had it every now and again, but I could recognize a Twinkie anywhere! Isn't it a staple snack amongst T-ball and soccer teams?  Fortunately, Hostess has released a statement that Twinkies are not gone...yet.

Just the other day I dropped off our MOPS donations for a local food pantry. As we were walking out of the door, one of the volunteers offered the spongey cake treat to Buggy.  I couldn't resist and let her have it. Now at least one of my three children has had a taste of the long standing treat enjoyed by many generations of kids everywhere. Now to introduce it to the boys!

  1. Did you know that Twinkies are now available with chocolate or lemon creme filling, in addition to the traditional ones?
