Yeah they we're on the bay the day they announced - a couple $MIL for an un-opened box of 20 - almost jumped on it but couldn't pull the trigger as the seller failed to provide the exp. date...

They were okay when I was a kid. Last Twinkie I ate,maybe a couple 6 months ago tasted like it was made from sawdust flour. Shoulda not eaten one and left fond memories be.

Because they don't have an expiration date.

Hopefully they sell the marketing rights to Century Arms! There is no better taste in your mouth then an ABT Twinkie.

I love the thought of eating the new "Angry Beaver Tail Twinkie".

Of course most here will claim they are not as good or as valuable as DSA dingdongs.

Anyways, I'd rather have a beaver bruised Twinkie then a man handled dingdong.

Just a con-fuddled thought.

A bunch of us here did the same thing when the Bankruptcy talk first came up (all individually-no one talked about it before hand).Not one of us liked them,even though we all ate them as kids.

Hadn't had one in 30 years and agree-should have stayed with the fond memories......
