Hostess liquidating.. i'm sad

Friday, November 16, 2012

I'm sad because all those people are going to lose their jobs.. I'm very frightened in what is happening around me. Don't know how many people will be affected but my prayers go out to them.

Interestingly I was a bit sad also to know that we will not be seeing twinkies on the shelfs and cup cakes.. ect ect.. People are buying everything right now.. hoarding these treats..

I honestly have not bought any of these in years. Don't even want them, wouldn't want them.. but part of me thinks.. gee maybe I should go buy a box just because.. why? It brings back my childhood memories. Thats it! these are the worse of worse foods.. for our health. I won't be going an purchasing any.. but I will miss what they represent, I will be sad for all those workers who are only trying to take care of their families..

Well this has not been the best week for me. I should stop saying i'm gonna do this and that.. I just can't seem to follow through. I have been working out.. still.. but the food situation.. I need to figure that out.. weight in this week.. gained two pounds... and have lost zero inches when I measured. sigh. kind of depressing to say the least.

I'll just keep plugging along.. just wanted to stop in and report..

    Even though they are far from anything remotely healthy I still hate to see Hostess go under. I'm hoping for some last minute investors to buy Hostess and save her from extinction. In the meantime, I bought the last 4 cupcakes at Bel Air. Considering the average half life of a Hostess cupcake and how infrequently I eat them, they should last me a while.

    Twinkies were few and far between for us when we were kids. We ONLY got one if the class went on a field trip. Then I wanted those banana flips. I agree I haven't had one in years and years. I worry about all the ingredients that keep them looking great on the shelf for 20 years.
I do however worry about all those workers.
