Most of that sweet creamy filling in snack cakes and cookies is animal fat or vegetable oils whipped with sugar. Ever read the ingredients on cheap snack foods; Polysorbate 60, Red 40, mono and diglycerides and calcium sulfate. Calcium sulfate is a food-grade equivalent of plaster of Paris. If they put sheet rock in food or drug products, would you defend them for being unethical capitalists like the Chinese capitalists that were shot for doing same thing?
Here's what's in a Twinkie:
*The Cake:
* Lecithin is an emulsifier made from soy. It's also used in paint to keep pigments evenly dispersed.
* Diacetyl mimics the taste of butter, since the real stuff would go rancid on a store shelf.
* Cornstarch is a common thickener. But it's more often used to make cardboard and packing peanuts.
* Yellow No. 5 & Red No. 40 give the cake the golden look of eggs.
* Sorbic acid, the only actual preservative in Twinkies, comes from petroleum.
The filling
* Shortening (in the form of partially hydrogenated vegetable oil and/or beef fat) is the main ingredient.
* Polysorbate 60 is a gooey substance that helps replace cream and eggs at a fraction of the cost. It's derived from corn, palm oil and petroleum.
* Cellulose gum gives the crème filling a smooth, slippery feel.
* Artificial vanillin is synthesized in petrochemical plants. The real thing comes from finicky tropical orchids that are pollinated by hand on the one day they bloom.

I very rarely eat Twinkies, but in the last few years when I did eat one, I noticed that they weren't as good as they used to be years ago.
Now, whether that's just me or whether they're actually not as good, I couldn't tell you. But, to me they just didn't taste right.

I just got a Robo call wanting me to send money to John McCain to fund a Congressional Investigation of the Benghazi Attack.
First of all, the FBI and the CIA are already investigating it and second of all, are we now going to have to pay our Congressmen and our Senators AGAIN to do what we already pay them to do...and pay them way more than they're worth, to do it?
I couldn't believe it! What kind of a Party has the GOP become?

Don't know if you're a smoker but, I've smoked for 50 years and nothing seems to taste the same. Wondering if smoking kinda messes with the taste buds?

Thats because when people get OLD, their taste buds change. Isn't it funny how someone will spend their lifetime worried about their neighbor and their personal, private lives but won't bother to look into their own HEALTH issues? Smokers are the worst! They stink, their homes stink, their cars stink, their breath stinks and they want to force us non smokers to die from their habits!Smokers are addicted to a drug, so just another drug addict.

Wait...no need to answer that question.
You must be a joke.Satan does not deserve the time of day.Any old 64 year old woman sitting on their ass all 24 hours a day doesn't get my time.She ought to get off it ,get out get a job.
Any SOB that talks abortion is stupid.That is personally between a dpoctor and his patient.
Ever been to an abortion clinic,go before you support killing babies like chickens.
Anybody seeing 18,000 people losing jobs that throws rocks at a company that doesn'tt have to keep the doors open one day longer is stupid.
A person concerned with pensions instead of food on children's tables is stupid. She repesents the devil.How little she knows of how all those families are going to pay the price for union loyalty instead of the one signing their checks to put bread on their tables. Soon you will see more in line at job fairs..She ought to be praising the company instead of throwing rocks but then it's gone anyway.No wonder she's had so many jobs.

Put that fried Oreo down before you start assailing smokers. Obesity kills more people and adds more to healthcare costs every year than smoking.

Hilarious. You don't go to bed until SHE goes to bed. Which is more embarrassing? You're wasting your entire life stalking her every post. Shameful.

From what I have read the union represented 5000 of the 18,500 strong workforce. I gave them extra. If I used percentages it would be 27.02%. You seem to be confused stumbling about trying to find something to praise this Union for.
Obama bailed out Gm to assure his votes from union members. Now unions are helpig shut down an AMERICAN company. Unions closed plants everywhere demanding of the ones writing the checks.
You can't blame the compnay.When a compnany has had enough,they do shut doors.They are there by choice not by force.Just having work should be appreciated.Enough is enough.Forget the math.They can spend their monney any way they choose.It's so hard to raise a ship when it goes down.

It looks like she is getting plenty of your time to me. You should go pray about your anger and "hate" issues.

company.money.
Instead of figuring the companies money,she needs to be pointing out the blessings workers were enjoying.
Namely a roof,food and warm home to lay down and sleep in every night.That's what the company makes possible,taxes for the towns,bank deposits..Now what does the union pay for?
Nothing,only takers,collecting dues to pay the mafia people up stairs...How little she knows.
Unions closed plants here to make our county number ONE in Tenn for unemployment.

The companies make these things possible ??? I thought those wages were EARNED by honest labor, not gifted from a benevolent company "123" ?
You imply the workers should be happy to give up 8% of their wages to Hostess as if they do not deserve the wages they EARN. Then I hear Republicans steadfastly supporting a LOWER tax rate for unearned income than money made from honest labor. SO...UNEARNED income deserves a 20% LOWER tax rate than income made by working for a living AND workers should give back an additional 8% to the company to keep those dividends coming ! PRICELESS.

Yes, I'm a smoker. But, I haven't noticed anything else that I liked , not tasting as good as it always did. I think they did something to the filling in the Twinkies. The creme filling in all their other products taste the same. But, I also noticed that the filling in their Turnovers taste the same , but there's less of it.

Really? Well, my doctor delivered my Daughter and he didn't know until about a year ago that I smoked, when the subject came up and I corrected his statement that I didn't smoke.He had never asked in all those years because he had assumed that I didn't smoke. He was shocked and said that he did not know that and that "he had never smelled it on me or seen any signs of it". And he's not the only One who's told me that, either. BTW, I smoked when my Daughter was born, too. So, you're full of BS and ignorant, on top of it!

Stop trying to show your math gift.You have to see people without jobs living in poverty as I have seen right here to know what it costs the family to see the doors shut.Reality is the standard of living goes down because there are no jobs to be had. America is hurting for jobs and you are figuring fractions.Ever seen a foreclosure?
Ever seen a family have to move out,auction home off? Watch for it.
