Great more sugar to be put into our bodies which we do not need.To much obesity already we have.Maybe they can make sugarless Twinkies.

Not everyone over indulges in life. Freedom of choice and free markets.

I don't want life lessons, I want Twinkies and Coke Classic.

I guess they missed the July 04 launch date.

Think about your heart and your cholesterol first.

Think about we are getting older and the less sugar and salt we have the better off we will be in our lives.

True, but sugar also makes life worth living. Laughing

I just believe everything should be in moderation. Heck, I'm in better shape now that I was in my 30's cause of this. I mean, you have to treat yourself every once in a while. Otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy and binge more. At least that has been my experience with dieting and eating better.

I agree. Moderation helps control bingeing on bad things.

The last Twinkie I had was years ago, and I tried it to see if it was still as enjoyable as in my youth.

I thought it was pretty disgusting.

Of course, when Hostess was pulling the plug, all the recipes for home made Twinkies, and assorted products came out. I can only imagine that they are no where near as bad as the real thing.
