HoHos are awesome. Twinkies were just ok. The snowballs were also pretty good.

I realize this is an old thread, but I just came across this video and it seemed appropriate to put it here.

my wife recently came home with something called a bingle, an almost exact twin of a twinkie.

i googled and found this: The Happy Nerd: The Twinkie is Dead. Long Live the Bingle!

Perhaps it's like a fruit flavoured soft drink sold under the name of Vimto in England. It had a huge following in the north of England where it had been made by a family firm since the early 20th century but couldn't break into the market in the south around the London area. A few years ago the company arranged a leak to the media to say that it would be ceasing production of Vimto and then all the Vimto in the stores went on "special offer". Apparently, this caused a demand for it both all over Britain and miraculously it is still for sale.

Perhaps the Twinkies people are trying the same tactics to boost sales.

Nope, Hostess went out of business, you can no longer buy their products.

Hmm. We have a little shop in the place where I live which calls itself "The American Candy Store" and has a display of Twinkies in the window. Sounds like old stock and to be avoided.

(Unless you'd like me to buy up the stock and ship it over to you ?)
