I never cared for Twinkies but I still love Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's

Hubby enjoys the snowballs but only when they are green at St Patrick's Day LOL plus he thinks their fruit pies are the best.

Guess I better hit the store and get some of those into the freezer before they are all gone.

You don't need to put twinkies in the freezer. Twinkies don't have an expiration date, they have a half-life.

I understand hoarding and price gauging are already in effect. Unbelievable.

I was just at supermarket and saw woman with like 6 large boxes of twinkies.... She was sad to see them go.
I think they'll be bought out

My store was almost out. I got the last box of Ho-Ho's and I got two Snowball, two Twinkie and two Ding Dong small packages. I didn't buy everything off the shelves, I left some for others but there was not much left. I hope they bring out more from the back. I was hoping to score a fruit pie or two. =o(

I haven't had a Twinkie in over 30 years since that one guy had one too many Twinkie and went on a shooting rampage in San Francisco.

And he got off because of the "Twinkie Defense."

They are a yellow sponge cake with no real taste and an artificial cream filling. Again no taste. Have no idea why they are so popular. Maybe because they are indestructible. They never go stale or become hard.
