Matt Lauer said on the Today show that Hostess snacks were a part of his childhood, and that he's not the only person to be upset about Hostess declaring bankruptsy:

I loved them as a kid. I would have been much better off leaving them as a fun memory than to have ever tried them as an adult. I did once, and won't ever do it again.

My kids have never had them, that I know of. I suppose they may have at a friend's house or something, but if they did, they didn't think highly enough of them to tell me about it.

I've never really liked Twinkies. We used to eat Ho-hos and those little cupcakes occasionally. The last time I had one I thought it was pretty gross. I think a better American food icon would be an apple or cherry pie.

Isn't it Twinkies that last forever without preservation? Like, there's some teacher someplace that's had one sitting unchanged in his science classroom for thirty years? I think they'll be around for awhile.

I am sure that there are a lot of folks who are better off without Twinkies, a lot of folks who think they're better off with them, and then a whole other bunch who just don't care.

Are we getting desperate for discussion topics?

IMO, twinkies are good for one thing, and one thing only: quick strawberry shortcake.

Otherwise, I can leave 'em.
