    One Twinkie has 150 calories, 41 from fat. Hardly the bane of a healthy lifestyle that they are made out to be.

    It's more that it's devoid of nutritional value to go along with those calories.

    Every now and again I get a fierce craving for a Twinkie and I'll go through a box in a weekend.

    Apparently my habits aren't enough to keep Hostess from bankruptcy.

    The last decade or more the US culture has permeated into British culture, but thanks to US comics being on sale in the UK when I was small, the Hostess Twinkie was my very first example of something that I would never physically encounter within my own country, but which I knew about.

    I instantly knew what was being referred to when I saw the thread title, which seems strange, considering the impact they have had in my life, compared to say, air hostesses.

    As an Aussie, I too thought Air Hostess, but like Sith-I-5 I know what a Twinkie is. Never seen one in real life, never tasted one, but the American culture has infiltrated ours and we know what a twinkie that could survive a nuclear explosion is. ;) Sad that of all the food that causes weight issues, that the humble Twinkie is the one biting the bullet :(

    If their chief product, the Twinkie, can be left in a High School locker all school year long and still be (relatively speaking) edible, I have a feeling that the company will be able to bounce back from this just like their cream filled sponge cake :p
