okay, so, everyone who's american (I was talking to a guy in australia who only knew the theory of twinkies so I'm pretty sure it's an american thing, mexicans and canadians sound up if they're there or were there) knows about the fact that Hostess went out of business. Sad news for those workers, obviously, but... god I am so glad.

basically 3 days after the announcement, my mom comes home with fuckin like a box full of cupcakes. I am literally talking like there was close to 100 cupcakes (only 10 twinkies but no one but my dad likes em). It was bananas, all chocolate cupcakes too (she works at salvation army and as far as I know they just got them out of a truck and the workers there got as many as they could carry I don't know I wasn't really paying attention) so me, having little to no self control and they being RIGHT THERE, decided that having like 6-8 cupcakes a day was a sound thing to do that would be perfectly healthy and I should stop worrying.

Of course, I'm pretty sure any person that knows what cupcakes are made out of can deduce this is a bad idea. I know it's a bad idea and I partake anyway because I have a carefree personality (when it comes to my diet, that is)

So we finish those, or get close to, in about a week. a day later she comes home with, like, 80 more.

ugh

I guess this really doesn't have any discussion value, so I wanted to know if something like this has ever happened to you; you got so much of a food item that you got sick of it? I mean it's not like cupcakes are my favorite food or anything but I do know that after this is done, I will not want any more cupcakes ever, and fuck hostess

The only thing I can think of is getting too much pizza and fuck any hostess stuff they're all gross.

#3 Posted by VisariLoyalist (2991 posts) -

I really hope they get restructured so the cupcakes can come back. As horribly unhealthy as they were they satisfied some dark need.

#4 Posted by Animasta (14671 posts) -

@VisariLoyalist: that they did. and you know what having near limitless amounts (obviously not limitless but it seems like it) does to a person?

it's grim as fuck, lemme tell ya

@Colourful_Hippie: I've never had that with pizza, even when I was buying 2 little caesars pizzas a week

I am Canadian and only remember seeing twinkies once.

so what you're saying is... NO ONE MAN SHOULD HAVE ALL THAT CUPCAKE

I never had that, but since I'll go off to university soon, I have a feeling I'll have pizza all the bloody time! I just can't get enough of it, and since it's cheap, tasty and I hate cooking, that'll be my meal of choice!

@VisariLoyalist: no one should have more than 1-2 hostess cupcakes per month, to be QUITE honest.

disregarding the fact that they're terrible for you, they're also not very good.

I instantly wanted one.

Holy damn how is your GI system not completely fucked right now?

I don't think it would take much will power to stay away from those cupcakes... those things are gross.

actually I'm pretty sure it is but I didn't want to get too gross in the OP

@TooWalrus: yeah, but they're RIGHT THERE. it's not hard to just grab them and eat them and hate yourself and do it again anyway.

This is what I hate about the Twinkie narrative from what I've seen. It's "Hostess has gone out of business! Thishasput18000workersoutofajob BUT THINK OF THE DING DONGS, GODDAMN IT!!"

I've checked every store I've been in for Hostess stuff since I heard the news and have had no luck. Count your blessings... or maybe I should count mine?

...I'm over here NOT drowning in cupcakes, please send ME help.

Ding Dongs are where it's at. Microwave 'em! (Take the tin-foil off first though.)

@Animasta:

So "tastes good" is not as great a priority as "is close to me"?

when you are waking up starving? yes. Then you want to get some food while a game loads.

and then it just snowballs into utter depravity

@Animasta:

When that happens, I just transform into Sonic and bolt to the best pizzeria in town.

Happens all the time. Poptarts, honey buns, chinese food, etc.
