I use to keep a pantry full of serious junk food my freshman year of college (long ago), and Twinkies and Ding Dongs were definite staples.  Use to mow those things down.  Of course, I was playing sports several times a day back then, so it didn't do anything to me more than give me some extra energy and rot my teeth.

If I ate that **** nowadays though, it'd be another pound or two straight to my belly.

Not fair.   >:(

These things don't even have a shelf life!  If there was a nuclear war, the only things left would be bugs, Keith Richards and twinkies!  They aren't even baked, they're made with some kind of chemical reaction or something.

Pop Tarts.  You forgot pop tarts.  Those things never age, it's frickin' spooky.  I used to eat them all the time in grad school.  Found an envelope of them that had been in the desk for a couple of years.  I was hungry.  They tasted like they were brand new.

Well the story about the company that makes Twinkies filing for bankruptcy is true, but that doesn't mean they will be closing down production any time soon. Hostess would never let their top seller go away. I do find this guy's audacity to be funny, but what is even funnier is that since a Twinkie's shelf life is like a million years, he can keep trying to sell this MIMB Twinkie 10pack for the rest of his life. Maybe he will get it AFA graded to really jack up the price.  ;D

You bring up a good question...   Do they make a star case big enough to fit a box of twinkies?

I fully expect to win and need them to be protected before they can be put on permament display.
