Word is that there is a strong possibility that we will not be seeing our beloved Twinkies (and other well known and well loved Hostess products) here in the near future and this story is all over the news these days. I remember going on a field trip back in elementary school to the local Hostess Bakery. It was a pretty cool field trip for kids that age. We were fascinated with the products that they produce and seeing how they made and packaged their baked goods was interesting and educational enough to keep our interest through out the entire tour. Something that is an issue with most field trips, if you can’t keep the kids interested they are going to wonder off and/or ruin the day for all the other kids and chaperones.
And the end of the field trip, each kid was given a mini loaf of Wonder Bread to take home and eat. We were all fascinated with these tiny little mini loafs with all of the brightly colored dots all over the package, something that Wonder Bread is well known for. I remember wanting to eat that bread right there on the bus, but I wanted to take it home and show my family before diving in and eating it all up. And if I remember correctly I never did eat the darn thing, which ended up requiring me to toss it out with the rest of the weekly garbage for the compost pile that my mother was always adamant about us contributing to for her gardens to utilize and prosper from.
