    Well Hostess has filed for bankruptcy protection for a second time. In Zombie land Woody Harrelson's character loved Twinkies and would risk his life for one. Is it time to go on a buying binge to stock the bomb shelter?

    Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, and Sno-Balls a thing of the past, along with little chocolate donuts the breakfast of champions? Say it ain't so!

    Not gone, just bankrupt. A Hostess bankruptcy doesn't mean the disappearance of Twinkies any more than a GM bankruptcy would have meant the disappearance of the Corvette.

    But in regards to icons, I think Wonder Bread surpasses Twinkies, since Twinkies were the greatest thing since sliced bread.:)

    Not the taste. The consistency.

    Not the little chocolate doughnuts!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    These, along with a pint of chocolate milk are my favorite 24 hour gas station buy at 3am after a gig for the ride home.

    Little Debbie is pretty awesome. You can get 6 packages of Swisss Rolls for the cost of 1 package of Ho Hos.
