230

The shelves that usually hold Hostess products are eerily empty, as if an Apocalypse is coming and people are stock piling the food that has the longest shelf life.

I haven't eaten Twinkies in quite awhile, but now as soon as I can't, I want one!  After perusing eBay, and seeing how many bids there are on those yellow cakes of pure yumminess, I can tell I'm not the only person jonesing for just one more taste.

A lot of 40 individually wrapped Twinkies has 22 bids, bringing the price up to $230.

Yes.  Not a typo, not a misplaced decimal.

Two hundred thirty dollars.

I haven't reached the point where spending that much money on a snack cake seems like a good idea. 

Give me a few more weeks in a Twinkie-less land, then I might change my mind....

  1. I feel the same way. I haven't wanted a Twinkie in years, but now I'm craving them like crazy!

  2. :( What's happening to the Twinkies? (I'm from the UK so have no idea...all I know is that the only time I visited America I couldn't find any! I was desperate to try one, I have no idea why...guess I never will now).

  3. Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I really believe the rumors of Twinkie's death are greatly exaggerated.

    Still, I am not unaware of the possibility that they may be going by "Los Twinkios" moving forward.

  4. haha who knew---my daughter just gave a friend of hers a box of twinkies a couple of weeks ago, for their birthday---wish we had kept them--but we would have probably eaten them before the news :)
