Think twice about that last Twinkie...

Friday, November 16, 2012

In case anyone was thinking about making a run to the store to snag that final box of Hostess... take a peek at this:

This is a Hostess cupcake that I socked away in August of 1999, for sentimental reasons (long and weird story). A real testament to the power of preservatives, it is almost entirely intact, no mold whatsoever, and I bet the filling inside is just as creamy as the day it rolled off of the production line.

It is really scary what we put in our bodies, isn't it? I was considering getting a box, maybe some Ding Dongs or something, 'hey I have been eating like a champ, I deserve a treat' kind of thinking...but then I remembered that I had this and changed my mind. I am done eating this sort of garbage!

    I was never a Twinkie fan, but I did like the cupcakes and ho-hos. Can't say I'm running out to buy them now...

    Yeah, only thing that surprises me is that you kept it around, I would have eaten it 13 years ago. LOL
I wouldn't get near one today, but learned a lot this year.

You are doing great!
