Twinkies -- the snack icon of our youth -- may soon be history. Say it ain't so!!
The after school treat of grade school years, the meal replacement of high school days, the late night sustenance of finals week may soon become a victim of the no-carb generation.
Well, not quite yet. They've got to do all the bankruptcy stuff first. So think of this as more of a cry for help.
Mrs. Linklater hears their pain and she has a plan. Something we all can do to prevent the untimely extinction of this beloved spongy yellow cake with the very gooey white stuff on the inside.
Yep. Go out and buy some Twinkies. Think of it as a public service. If the millions of people with an AOL account went out and bought just one package apiece, we could save the entire company. Or at least delay its death. Can't you feel the power?
Life won't be the same with out those darling little cakes with the surprise inside.
So get down to 7-11 and do your part.
Some day you'll thank me.
