Oh, joy of joys! Oh, dream of dreams! Twinkies will be back on the shelves this Monday, July 15. Actually, really, I never liked Twinkies, even as a kid. There were a couple of reason for this. Number one: I don't eat anything I can't identify. I mean what exactly IS a Twinkie? What's that spongy material it's made of.....and what's that gooey cream on the inside? Forget about it. The other thing that always turned me off of Twinkies was this story going around that they have a shelf-life of 37 years. It turns out that is not true. It's an urban legend. However, it IS true that the shelf-life of Twinkies is 26 days. Well, that was the shelf-life of the old Twinkies. The new Twinkies coming out next week have a shelf-life of 45 days.
Even though I don't eat Twinkies, I plan on buying some up anyway. They make great paperweights and door-stops. I think you should also have these on hands as weapons in case someone breaks into our house, you can hurl one of these at them and if you hit them in the head, you'll render them unconscious
Anyway, for those of you who enjoy these things, get ready to go to it.
By the way, they're also bringing back Ho-Ho's............and no, I'm not talking about the Kardashian Sisters.
