Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Last Box of Twinkies

Time to nut up or shut up. The expiration date for Twinkies  is upon us, with news that a strike by 18,500 bakers in the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union has forced Hostess Brands, Inc., to shut its doors. To read the company explanation of the shutdown, visit  http://hostessbrands.com/Closing.aspx

No more Twinkies. No more Ding Dongs. No more Ho Ho’s. No more Donettes. No more Wonder Bread. Not even friggin’ SnoBalls. Welcome to Zombieland!

The rise and fall of the Twinkie.

A stroll back to better times as Buffalo Bob Smith (Richard Schmidt) gives a pitch for Hostess Twinkies on The Howdy Doody Show in the 1950s.
