C’mon, be reasonable... I’ve eaten Mexican food and lived to tell the tale. Their stuff isn’t up to US/Canadian in quality; the cookies, the pastas are crude. But no melamine.

As many are pointing out, Bimbo Twinkies would be baked in Texas. Bimbo bread is also baked in the States and, I can personally testify, is darned good, not Mexico crude.

Lets face it-Twinkie junkies won`t care if they come from Pluto as long as they taste the same. I like the Ding Dongs myself. Hope lower production costs will be reflected in the price. Whatever happened to competion? I can make Twinkies at home...its not particle physics.

The Twinkie challenge is to mass produce a consistent cake that has a guaranteed shelf life. Anyone can creme-fill sponge cake bars.

Maybe if they get enough of our businesses down there, the illegals will all go home!

I am a realtor in the DFW area....my company has helped several Bimbo executives move to the Dallas area. I just had a Bimbo exec move here from Chicago this year.... The plant that I know of is just south of Ft.Worth.

I have been told the pronunciation is “Beem-bo”.

The Mexicans just let us crazy gringos giggle at the Bimbo name. They don’t care.

I don’t always eat mass-produced snack cakes, but when I do I prefer Dos Tweenquis.

Stay hungry, my friends.

Bimbo is pronounced “beembo” in this country, and it doesn’t refer to an air-head girl. The drivers are all American and they own their routes, and are able to buy or sell different stores to expand their route or contract it.

Who actually eats Twinkies?

It’s one of those many iconic or well-known products I’ve never seen or heard of anyone eating or liking.

Such as Dr. Pepper.

I don’t know anyone who eats Twinkies, but a friend of mine has gone into a deep depression now that Ho-Ho’s will be going out of production.

Hmmm.... Tweenquis en mole. Sounds interesting.

Such a shame that mole is such a pain in the nalgas to make

I like their plain chocolate cupcakes mostly because of their cream centers. If Tastycake made theirs with cream I’d prefer that.

I also like their mini powdered donuts - Donettes.

Twinkies I don’t get.

"There’s no better product than corn syrup."

Corn syrup accelerates glycation and causes premature aging, especially in the eyes and kidneys. It causes fine wrinkles.

You need to give your immune system practice. Whenever I go overseas, my first order of business is to eat the food and drink the water. I'm talking straight out of the tap or whatever ditch they drink it from. Food carts along the street, no worries.

It isn't pleasant at first and I've spent more than a fair share amount of time trapped in the little boys room, but I'm at the point now where I rarely get sick and eating foreign foods/water doesn't do much more than a day or so with an upset stomach, if that.

What actually messes me up? MSG and all the garbage "we" put in our "food" here.....I've cut out all the fake food from my diet about 1 1/2 ago and I've felt better ever since (I don't buy into the organic fad, I just want my food to be food and not a chemistry set).

Have to wonder if they bought out Gardner Bakery. The Gardner Bakery on East Washington has a Bimbo Bakeries sign in front.

And in some places, no problemo. I visited Latvia once and ate street vendor cuisine that didn’t seem to have anything more than the most rudimentary sanitary practices applied. Not even an upset stomach.

I had never heard of them until now, so I did a search and it came back with 5 locations in my area.

Maybe they could bring the textile mills back next after they finish with the bakeries.

I almost got to visit there once on my employers dime, but engineered test equipment accommodations to the local altitude without flaw in the first attempt.

That's pretty funny. A FReeper friend of mine (who shall remain unnamed) tells me her ex keeps an entire cupboard filled with Twinkies and several cases (you read that correctly) of Dr. Pepper in the back of his mini-van.

I’m with you, Mr Apple! I *finally* learned to check the labels on every. single. thing. we buy at the grocery store. If it says “Hecho en Mexico” or doesn’t say, it goes back. I’m flat not eaten’ it. (The silver lining is that we’re saving a fortune at Sam’s Club)
Filth.
