Last year I had a friend doing a performance piece that involved eating Twinkies on stage and once it was done he handed out the extras backstage. The smell of the yellow cake was intoxicating and somehow my grade school brain was activated to expect something spectacular. I opened the crinkled plastic and took a bite. I immediately had the most visceral response to the acridly sweet bite of sugar cake I think I've ever had. Grateful that I opened the package without anyone else in the room, I spit it out.
"Oh God! Why was this ever so popular?!" Clearly my tastes are still uncool...
Now Hostess sputters out of existence we will find just how long a Twinkie's shelf life is... shelves are being emptied and ebay is suddenly the coolest kid on the playground.
