Here’s One for Your Diet

The Winston-Salem Journal's Michael Hastings points out on the Dishing it Out blog that Twinkies recently turned 80.  He also shares a little tidbit of info that I found most useful: each Twinkie has only 150 calories.  Why did I ever give them up?

No word on the caloric damage found in Ho-Hos, but I much liked them anyway.

    Really did amaze me.  The other thing he noted was that Twinkies supposedly have a shelf life of something like 28 days.  My own extensive field testing (in my youth) shows that its many times that. Theres a reason we called them nuclear food.
