That's it, I'm definitely cancelling my trip now!! I could have kept my zombiphobia in check, but no twinkies? That's just cruel and unusual punishment right there.

I should have guessed. When you have zombies, twinkies get hard to find (ask Woody Harrelson).

Russians have tons of sweet pastries & candies. No twinkies that I remember seeing, but they have Snickers.

The russian kids arent fat, not because of poverty, actually, most of the people there seem to live rather well. Sure, there is poverty, we have poverty here in the US also.

They are not fat because they dont sit on their asses all day eating & playing video games. They walk everywhere, most play sports, they ride bikes, work in the gardens, etc.

just my observations.

When I was in college at Penn State - a huge campus that everyone walked a ton within, and around town, I noticed the same when I visited other colleges that students used cars and buses more often.

Of course, the typical Penn Stater gets used to the increased metabolism, fails to adjust the diet when leaving college, and gains the weight later...

Will you be at the Long Beach show? I cant find a speaking schedule (might be too early yet), like they posted for San Mateo.
