It is sad. I will miss Snowballs. And those little hockey puck's of delight, the Ding-Dong.

This can't happen. I'm in denial.

I rarely, if ever, eat any of their products, but occasionally a pink snowball really, really hits the spot.

Now the comedians won't have anything to slam when it comes to shelf life of food. No more Twinkies to trash!

And lawyers will no longer be able to use the twinkie defense. They will have to come up with new tactics. A hummus induced homicidal fit? Nah. Won't work.

I haven't had a Twinky in probably 40 years. It's not really on my list of preferred foods, but I may have to have one again just for nostalgia's sake before they're gone forever.

There's talk that another company is looking to buy them out but no mention of which company that is. The TV news has reported brisk sales of Hostess products since the announcement.
