Ta-ta, Twinkies!

I haven't had a Twinkie in decades, but I'll admit to being melancholy over the demise of the baby boomer lunchbox staple. I'm pretty sure I had a Twinkie, Hostess cupcake or Ding-Dong every school day of my formative years. (And I wonder why I have to fight my blood sugar levels like a dog!)  Reportedly, Hostess is no more, and that's sad - mainly because of the jobs lost and lives upended.  I, for one, won't miss the individually wrapped desserts, although I now regret never having sampled the deep-fried versions at the county fair.  Oh, well....

I'm partial to Ding Dongs. This is tragic! Tragic, I tell ya.
