I should’ve run a truckload across the border when I had the chance- they never stopped production in Canada.

I should open an ebay store then- the retail price here is $3-$3.50, and as a bonus they’re fresh.

Any chance you’d try baking your own bread? Its not all the difficult and it’s way better than store bought.

Should add that we started with a bread machine and expanded after we became experienced.

When the kids were growing up, before bread machines were popular, we would make our own bread but we still bought Wonder bread for sandwiches.

I work in an inner city region for a competitor snack food company. You would be amazed at the extent Cheetos, Little Debbie cakes, hot fries, Doritos, etc. serve as food staples for EBT recipients. Little wonder why American “poor” are the fattest people in the world.

"After years of management turmoil and turnover"

I see.. so it was MANAGEMENT that killed the company, not those union goons who refused to accept a reasonable offer.

Sorry, but GGG only pertains to the historical legacies of cultures. ;’)

That's why America had to re-elect Baraq. 4 years wasn't enough for MooseChelle to work her magic and transform them into specimens with "fabulously toned arms".

Might be a bad investment based on all the hoopla surrounding the situation. Any idea of how many Twinkies were being sold on an annual basis? More of a nostalgia item for those of us born in the ‘50s-’60s. Of course, if I was a business genius I wouldn’t have so many concerns about finances as things fall apart around us.
