The Damn Union !!! let`s shut down lay every one off the re-open under the same name a few months later hire back the employees at a much lower wage with a lot less benefits ....AND NO UNION!!!!!!

Anyone think this is just a sales gimmick like when coke made new coke and then brought the classic coke back?

Thanks Squirls and Ruth, I think I might just leave this one as a legend. If I don`t try it I can never spoil it. Kinda like that girl at school I never got with. She was probably sh*t in bed anyway (yeah, right...)

It is HILARIOUS that the union refused to compromise on pensions and benefits, so 15,000 union workers ended up losing their jobs, pensions and all benefits. Classic.

Anyone in a union who thinks their union is looking out for them is delusional.

Twinkies taste the way sex feels and shame on anyone who attempts to take them from my sticky hands.

Beardofzeus - do you live in the UK? If so there are specialist shops that sell them here, at extortionate pries of course, but if you are desperate to try one go for it.
Try and find an American style pancake and waffle house or milkshake place, they tend to sell lots of American sweeties as well as twinkies, my friend bought some for her bf the other week.

@ BeardofZeus: Here`s a description of the Twinkie experience.

1. You tear open the clear, crinkly plastic wrap from the Twinkie, which is made about as thin as is technologically possible. It adheres to the bottom of the Twinkie, and as you pull it away, it pulls off two spots of white filling from the filling injection holes.

2. You hold the Twinkie in your hand, preparing for that first bite. The cake is spongy and tends to stick to your fingertips. A sweet smell fills your nose, with notes of artificial vanilla and burnt cake.

3. You take a bite. It`s soft and moist and spongy. Very sweet. The dominant sensation is one of an engineered food: the cake is somehow plastic-y and the filling seems more like some kind of foam than anything resembling whipped cream.

4. Depending on your tolerance for artificiality, you either proceed to eat the rest of the Twinkie or throw it into the trash.

Hope that helps.

Ever since first watching GhostBusters as a child, I`ve wondered what a Twinkie tastes like. Visited the USA a few years back and never tried one. Huge regret...

They are revolting. I schlepped a box back from the states a few years back because no2 son was desperate to try them. The poor child excitedly took a bite, chewed twice -then spat. Never has a child been so disappointed. we threw them away but I expect they are in a landfill somewhere- glowing luminously yellow and untouched by rats or microbes.
