There was a patisserie in Magog called "Gaby" years ago. We'd cross the border just to visit it. The mille feuilles were worth the drive. Darn place burned to the ground.

However, we're not discussing flavor in regards to Twinkies. I haven't eaten one since the 1970s, and frankly haven't missed them at all. They are a matter of national security. What other food will sustain us through the Zombie Apocalypse as noted previously? They require no particular special storage. There is no such thing as a "stale Twinkie." Cockroaches shy away from them. When you needed an instant burst of energy to decapitate a Zombie, though, Hostess had your back. No more.

It's a sad age we live in, indeed.

High in cholesterol and leads to Mad Cow Disease. Almost as bad as Twinkies.

I should have just kept my childhood memory of Twinkies.

When I heard the news, I bought some at the corner store to share with my wife. When I bit into it, I was truly disappointed. The cake did not have that sweet, trans-fat flavor that I remember, and the frosting inside was literally the diameter of a pencil. My first thought was "no wonder they are going out of business".

I started to go buy some Zingers, then decided to keep that memory intact...

I was told that men can't get Mad Cow disease because we are pigs. So I guess we're safe on that count.

Wife V2.0 has a much better interface and is definitely more user friendly. Still got a couple of bugs though...

I wouldn't get too worried. Rumour has it that Twinkies have a shelf life of around 200 years. So i am sure you will find some sort of a stash on the US mainland. Look in old barns etc. and i am sure you will find. Look for fat people that have not started to thin since the production stoppage. They would be my first targets.

3.0 is near perfect. Good looking, fun to be around, and, bonus, she has a job whereas I don't

I saw some Twinkies in a convenience store today. Wasn't tempted either to taste them, or buy a bunch and commence speculating in them.
