I was devastated when I heard the news.
Hostess was going bankrupt.
For most of their products, most that I didn’t even know they made, it wasn’t a big deal to me.
But for one in particular, I was devastated.
And that one? Twinkies.
Of course, I hadn’t had a Twinkie in ages, which is probably the problem.
But once I heard the news, I had to go out and buy a couple of packages.
I haven’t eaten them yet — they are still sitting on my kitchen table — but I’m hoping they are going to be consumed rather soon.
When I was looking at them at our local grocery store, a youngster looked at me and said, “You heard about Twinkies, too?”
And while my everyday life won’t be affected, I’ll always be able to tell my children about the magical food called Twinkies.
