I wouldn't miss any of these extended-life pastries.
I just ate a Hostess cherry pie. Someone brought a few of them to work, saying this was our last chance ever to eat one. It had an expiration date of Dec 3. It tasted ok, but that is about the best I can say for how it tasted--just ok. Crust was kind of blah, filling was kind of blah. Nothing really memorable about it. Perhaps if Hostess made really good pastries, like they used to, they would be making a lot of money. Or perhaps I just have fond memories of eating these pastries during childhood, and they really didn't taste any better back then, but just seeing the world through a child's eyes made them seem better than they were.
Someone else at work said there is a box of twinkies on sale on ebay for $10,000.
Earlier this year, they had a premium grade HDMI cable on sale for twice that much.
A PBR Twinkie?
That might be an interesting Twinkie!
Last Friday, a 2-box set of Twinkies was on ebay for $339,000.00 :eek2:
Beer and Twinkies. Now there's a combo! :goodjob:
At some point I noticed the cream filling wasn't as good. Less sweet and thicker. That slowed down my intake.
Yet another person agrees with me.
We're getting there!
I just ate a Twinkie. It was OK. Nothing special.
Full disclosure... as a very young kid, one weekend in a hotel room stay with my parents... I ate most of a whole box of Twinkies... and threw up later that night... so that one event pretty much soured me on Twinkies for the most part the last 30 years +...
But, every once in a while, when I tried one... I noted they were not nearly as good as they used to be.
I still like cake... and cream filled cakes... so I tend to think if the product was better, I would consume more.
Well, that mediation was...short.
I'm only 35, but IMO, nothing tastes the same as I remember while growing up. Twinkies, Nutter Butter cookies, even a lot of fast food. I think it has to be one of two things....companies changing the recipes to save $$ or regulations on ingredients they can use. But it very well may just be my taste buds changing :lol:
I remember when I used to travel out West (from Michigan) and bring Coors beer back. It was certainly different than the watered down version you can get everywhere now.
Let's see what the judge says. It somehow seems to me that Hostess management has been bent on liquidation from the beginning of this bankruptcy process. Of course, I could be wrong. If Hostess is liquidated, Sun Capital Partners appears to be the only organization willing to buy the company and start it back up, union, employees, and facilities intact. It would be nice to see Hostess get one more chance, and see the quality of their products go up.
Hmm... I'd normally go fo Beer and Pizza, but I've never tried Beer and Twinkies. You might be getting on to something here :lol:
Beer and Twinkies, Twinkies and beer
Makes your head start achin', makes your eyes unclear
Makes you spend your money, turns you blind and dumb
Shift all the manufacturing to right-to-work states. Unions, which once were incredibly important to the workforce, have now become a cancer.
The union heads are Ding Dongs.
That's just plain crazy. The cost of such a move would guarantee the end of the company. From what I've seen, the teamsters have previously agreed to wage, benefits and pension cuts at least twice in an effort to save jobs. Management did nothing to improve company operations. While unions are often to blame for business failures, I don't see that to be true in this case. The days of union power are long gone.
