Hmmm I was thinking maybe I will buy a few, then lock it away for like 30 years. What would a Twinkie be worth in that time? hehe

# 24 Twinkies may rise again?

It looks like Hostess is trying to sell off its brands, so it's possible that some other company may buy Twinkies and start making them again.

Don't worry... any that are out there will last a couple of hundred years...

Don't - STO can't afford to loose a good environment artist such as yourself.

(I've had Twinkies when I was younger - but I think the sugar rush would be very detrimental at my age now. Twinkies aren't for adults. )

Even if not, there's several knockoff brands that are pretty much identical that will probably spread to more stores now. There's one that Kroger stores carry around Michigan that's honestly better than the real deal since it comes in six or seven different flavors.

Ummmm .... no. .... We don't need twinkie flavoring in the taco mix.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

No, just a relatively remote part of Europe somewhere between Greece, Italy, and Hungary.

Used to be a regular eater of their "fruit pies" (note quotation marks ), particularly the blackberry and lemon (cream) sorts.
I think I'll pick up one last pair at the store later, for old time's sake.
