The cream filling used to be banana flavored, but in WWII, they couldn't get bananas, & they never changed it back.
I think I'll get some Uncle Al's Banana Planks!
Good luck defeating a supervillain with those.

They're going bankrupt because they make the worst-tasting junk food on the planet.

Twinkies were never good as far back as I can remember.  I clearly remember having Mom buy me some because I saw them in Ghostbusters, and thinking the first one I ate was utterly disgusting.  Not only did it taste bad, it made my throat burn and my stomach upset.  Our dog wouldn't even eat them.  However, vile as they are, Twinkies can't hold a candle to those gross, pink snowball things.  They should be relabeled as hazardous waste.  Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, those godawful mini-muffins and cupcakes, and even their superhero endorsed fruit pies all tasted like sewage with sugar on it.

Good riddance, I say ... at least until whomever buys the brand names reintroduces them.

I hope NEVER to think the phrase "Uncle Al's Banana Plank" ever again.  Somehow that just creeped me right out.

I will miss HOSTESS Cupcakes the most.  Especially the ones with the orange icing.  One of the best sugar rushes out there!

I haven't had a Hostess product in years.  Now, there's no chance that I'll ever have another.  :(

This morning the radio said the judge wouldn't grant Hostess permission to liquidate everything yet.  He ordered Hostess and the union to try to work it out.  Maybe there's still hope?

(Anyone else heard about this? An online article would be appreciated.)

Tonight's news said mediation failed.  Hostess is going to ask the judge for permission to auction off their assets in the morning.  Bluesad

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
