...the shining star of the show was the Twinkie. CNN reported that the company made 500 million of the creme-filled treats every year. The icons have been on shelves since 1930 and have so many stories surrounding them. As news cracked this morning, many joked that they could buy some today and keep them for their great-grandchildren, because supposedly the cakes never go bad. Despite the high amounts of preservatives, Hostess says, Twinkies really only have a 25 day shelf life. President Clinton placed a package in the Millennium Time Capsule in 1999, scheduled to be opened in 2100. I guess time will tell if they really can spoil.

A second birth was given to these calorie-dense (150 per cake), sugar-loaded (18g per cake), nutrient-void treats when the state fairs began battering and deep frying them on a stick for fair-goers. As if they weren’t rough enough on your system in their original form, we found a way to make matters worse. Fairs and Fried Twinkies are nearly synonymous. This coming year’s fair scene could be quite different.

So there you have it. No more Twinkies. Regular or deep fried. Sniff.
One more American institution gone. Thanks to the stinking greedy union workers. Demanding free healthcare to fix their arteries stuffed with cholesterol. Selfish b*s*a*ds!

I'll bet this wouldna happened if Mitt Romney had won the election.
