Hello Spark Friends,

Last Friday I bought a bunch of Hostess Donuts and Hostess Donettes as the company went out of business. Something possessed me to get in the car and go get these many boxes of “food” that now sit in the living room laughing at me. Trust me, I will not be eating them. Of course, I do plan to become wealthy by selling them on the internet:

And then I had a tiny crisis of conscience. Aren’t I supposed to be a role model of the healthy way of life now?

But now I know why I did spend money on Hostess Treats:

I guess I’m pursuing Spark People who don’t know they should be here yet. If you have anything to add to my posts above, please comment on them and say what I forgot to say.

I’m the Number One Result on multiple Google searches for the whole Hostess Crisis, so anything you say will be seen forever. Right now five people an hour are reading about how to freeze hostess products and maybe they would rather be here reducing portion sizes instead.

A year from now, people will say, “No! Hostess did NOT go out of business”, and then check the internet to see if it’s true. People will still be led to these posts and hopefully to better health as well. I think this is a good way for me to pass on just a little bit of the Spark I got from Chris Downie on October 10, 2007. If just one person makes a very small change and turns it into a habit, I will be very happy, grateful and proud of myself.

I hope you all have a great week and don't forget to let me know if you want any expensive Donettes.

XO Sharon

    Sharon! I have a hostess story for you! My sweet Gary was on T.V. here in Bakersfield because he was trying to find a twinkie when people were buying them up! He is so funny! You would like him! On T.V. the news people referred to him as the twinkie loving stranger! He offered the news guy 20 dollars for the box but the news guy just let him have the box. emoticon

    I never even liked the Hostess products! Never ever bought them. I don't understand the hype. However, you will probably make a fortune. :D

    I think there will always be a twinkie. Some company will buy the recipe/rights to these products and continue to make them. If there's a market for it, someone will supply the product I think junk food will be with us forever.

    I don't buy 'em nor do I eat 'em. I would have if there's a zombie apocalypse emoticon . Guess I just have to find something else.

    I'm unable to find Hostess products anywhere in my community. In fact I haven't seen them in years. I guess I'll just have to get along without having a final Twinkie. Ah well. I guess I'll survive.
