chuckle.gif I knew they would be back. Hostess filed for bankruptcy and by dropping Twinkies, created a demand.
They will sell like crazy when back on the shelves, money problem solved.
This is the new Coke story all over again, it created a demand for the original formula.
Yeah they brought it back and made a ton of money, but it wasn't original formula, the sugar was replaced with high fructose corn syrup which was half the cost of sugar.
They only feed that to that poison to people in the US as far as I know. The rest of the coke in Europe and even Mexico still has sugar.
I would not consume Twinkies or Coke if I was dying of thirst and hunger. Twinkies are not even food, and nobody should be drinking high fructose corn syrup.

Quote:A Princeton University research team has demonstrated that all sweeteners are not equal when it comes to weight gain: Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same.

In addition to causing significant weight gain in lab animals, long-term consumption of high-fructose corn syrup also led to abnormal increases in body fat, especially in the abdomen, and a rise in circulating blood fats called triglycerides. The researchers say the work sheds light on the factors contributing to obesity trends in the United States.

Now it's shown to damage the liver as well: http://naturalsociety.com/high-fructose-...er-damage/
