I ate many a Twinkie in my childhood. Part of my body may actually be part Twinkie. It's sad to see them go. A couple years ago I bought Twinkies, DingDongs, HoHos, Cupcakes, Snowballs, and Zingers just so my kids knew what they were. I left a Twinkie on the counter and my son laughed that he had found "the mother of all junk food" sitting on the counter.
