The Twinkie. An American icon. The thing that was said would last past the end of the world.
Apparently it's company had gone bankrupt twice and the last time they just couldn't come back from it because they just couldn't come to a compromise with the union.
It was bought out by a new company and will be coming back to shelves next week. It will come back with a longer shelf life and be made by non-union labor.
It will be back with twice the shelf life. I wonder what they added to make it last on the shelf longer? It was never a health food to begin with, but shelf life extenders are never good for our bodies, so I wonder how much worse it will be when we eat them again? It's probably one of those things that are poisoning our bodies slowly over time.
Also, going to non-union labor means that their labor is paid less and probably with fewer benefits that the people that were striking. No unions mean worse working conditions.
But at least that means you get your Twinkies for cheap! They are coming back with the same price they had when they left! They'll still be the oily cream filled cakes they were!
If you're going to have a Twinkie, buy the single serve pack and eat only that. I know when I buy the multi-packs of treats, I eat the whole thing. Single-serve is the way to have your cake and eat it too.
