The Twinkie Apocalypse Has Begun!

Soon, there could be no more Twinkies!

DIY Twinkies: How to Make Them at Home If Hostess Shuts Down

However will we survive?! LOL! I think I can count on one hand the amount of Twinkies I've eaten in my lifetime, and they aren't part of my family's zombie survival plan. ;) Actually, I had no idea that the iconic Twinkies were originally made with banana cream filling, which makes them sound a little more tasty to me. Check out that link above for a recipe to make your own version of Twinkies, which is a little more healthy and without icky preservatives. (Well, unless you use the marshmallow cream. I think I'd try to make them banana pudding!)

Regardless of the humor in it, it's still rather sad to know that over 600 people have lost their jobs, and many more on the way if Hostess does shut down. :(
