TWINKIES

You know, I keep seeing all the big displays of the "new" Hostess cakes out now. Every darned store has them .....
I don't even LIKE Twinkies, now HO HO's are a differnt story , BUT be that as it may, Twinkies are something of an oddity to me, so, WHY AM I CRAVING THEM LATELY??
I think if someone brought me a box , I'd sit right here and eat them all. For no other reason than to figure out where the craving is coming from and to stomp that sucker OUT of my system.

Ho hos were cool, chocolate covered in chocolate with sweet whipped frosting creme..... ok ...yeh. THOSE I can see craving.... but Twinkies??

anybody else having these weird cravings for things that they have never really liked?? is this only because they seem so READILY availably right now, because they are the very first display in all the stores I see as I come in??? Why do they have to be so IN YOUR FACE about it?
It's ok to say "Americans are too fat" AND "here's a TWINKIE" ? Does that make sense?

bah.....
I think I'm rambling... time for bed... bright and early tomorrow or bust, ladies.

well Kim that might be because one of our ladies fessed up to eating a twinkie over the last day or 2 for the life of me I cannot understand anyone eating that trash about the only thing I used to indulge was some Bakery pastries that had crispy out sides and blueberry filling .. I never liked any of those hostess items unless I go back to my childhood and 'the snowballs were nice and fun to eat // that was a cupcake wrapped in marshmello and covered with coconut

store bought treats have no place in my plan if I bake it then I will eat it .hopefully in moderation'

That is a strange craving, Kim. I could understand it if they reminded you of happy childhood memories. My mom used to get all our baked goods at the Hostess thrift shop. Breads and sweets about to go stale filled our freezer. My favorite thing was a frozen Hostess cupcake. The cream filling froze hard so when you got down to it, you would lick it like ice cream. My lunch as a school child was a nutritional horror. Bologna and american cheese, lettuce and mayo on wonder bread. a bag of potato chips, Hostess cupcake and Hawaiian Punch. No, I have absolutely no idea why I am fat. LOL
Smoochies,
Sharon

You made me LOL Sharon with a description of that lunch. It was soo true in the fifties. My only difference is that my mom wouldn't let me have Wonder bread for some reason but I always wanted it because of the ads on tv. You really brought back a memory!

even tho I was a 60's kid the tradition of "wonder" still kept it up with those bright colored balls on the package. Do they know how to advertise or what? now thyhave those lunchables YUK! I think those are even worse ......luckily I opted out of mayo. lol.. Hmm why then am I fat.... to many twinkies hoho's and cherry and apple pies, powdered sugar donuts etc etc etc... I didn't like the snowballs tho the chocolate cake inside was good Yup I went once a month just up the street to the hostess bakery and got day ole too with mom... Memories.... can be beautiful and yet......................These particular ones...... Made us fat and sassy ..... Memories.........LOL

yup... and then came Nixon in the 70's with his even more terrible food of hi fructose corn syrup. He made Wick and created even more cheap food that was unhealthy.. this is a true fact. Not fiction.

Yup cravings, Well only one solution just cave in BUT WAIT not at any cost and at any quantity and at any time.


Once every 2 weeks 1 pastry real one not this boxes ones.
One that your really love and enjoy with friends and a great coffee. And then you will be able to continue on the journey.
DON'T FORGET ONLY ONE.


Feeling deprived is the worst enemy of a healthy journey.


Now for memories yup a nickel and you could almost get a pound of these Hight fructose candies. Remember the brown back filled to the rim. And all the may west and company.

Like Sharon my aunt would get the broken ho henry bar in bulk. She would put all in a drawer that we could go in once a week. And the barrel of chips. I could go on and on...


Yay for industrialization It is killing us all


Now we have to reeducate these brain cells one at the time.

Oh, Yeh, I KNOW snowballs , Judy, lol

I used to like taking the marshmallow cover off, then eat the cake then fold the marshmallow layer up and stuff it into my mouth, lol

AH , Sharon, you had the same elf packing your school lunches as I had!!! That sounded just EXACTLY like my lunches....
As for the frozen hostess's yeh, my mom did that too.

I think thats why the only way I can endure Twinkies is when they are frozen.

Kind of like eating Moon Pies... only way to eat em is zapped till gooey in the microwave, lol

I don't think there's actually any food in a Twinkie. I told you about the box I sent on a slow boat to a leper colony in India didn't I?

Oh but they were happy lepers, Kim! They had my son with them (every mother's dream, but that's college nowadays) for his birthday, so everyone got a Twinkie with a birthday candle in it to celebrate his special day. It's the power of the Twinkie. What other cake on earth could survive such a journey unscathed? I think they should have put one in that unmanned space probe that's off to new star systems. -83D-E1C

I've got one for you-Fizzies. This was a tablet you put in a glass of water to transform it into carbonated kool aid. My mom never bought them for me but I could wheedle them out of Nana. My Dad had a gas station and he rented the back lot out to eskimo pie so they could park their trucks and plug them in overnight. The drivers would frequently slip my dad ice cream for us as a thank you. Our freezer always had bridge mix Eskimo Pie 1/4 cup servings of ice cream formed in the shape of card suits and coated with chocolate.
Smoochies,
