    Alas, they used to taste a hell of a lot better than the teeny greasecakes they sell now.

        I saw on your site that you are actually a 300 pound man in a french maid’s uniform. That isn’t a perfect sexual body. Your Rodney Dangerfield icon is sexier than you.

      Of course you don’t like them, you aren’t eating them the way they were designed to be enjoyed… Battered, deep fried, and covered with chocolate syrup and powdered sugar. ‘Merica!

    mmmm iron…

    • garp

      …mmmmmm…riboflavin

      • Anaition

        …Mmmm…animal shortening!! :s

  • Greg

    Lies!!!! Twinkies are made with delicious goodness in every bite!

  • uhhh

    What the **** is animal shortening?

    • ken

      Rendered pig fat, usually. Lard.

    • HellHathNoFury

      It’s the magical potion that scientists created to feed animals to keep them short, so they cannot take over the world.

      • thatguyyousaw

        my biggest fear is animals taking over the world. thank god for science

  • Mustafa_Beer

    Twinkies are one of the magical cream filled treats that I have offered to young ladies ( above the age of consent ) for quite some time. I find girls LOVE a cream filled treat!

      I’m willing to bet you have never, EVER found that

  • ChrisDG74

    Corn syrup(high-fructose). Only in America. There’s a reason that shit is banned(or severely regulated) in the rest of the world.

    • nemesis

      Yep, welcome to Free Market Capitalism – where high fructose corn syrup replaces sugar because corn is subsidized by the Federal Government. Who gives a shit if it kills everyone in the process, as long as the corn farmers can continue doing what they’re doing.

      • ChrisDG74

        Exactly. That’s why I love my Mexican Coca Cola and Pepsi from my local wholesale club. It’s more expensive, sure. But you can’t beat the sweet, pure sugary goodness. The way soda used to taste before they changed everything back in the mid 80s.

          It’s so difficult to find any food without HFCS. Even the special k cereal I bought has it. Oh and America also has commercials that basically imply that people who think HFCS is bad, are ignorant.

          • ChrisDG74

            The tide is slooooooooowly changing. Hunts ketchup now has no HFCS. Gatorade no longer uses HFCS.
            I know I personally hoarded the Pepsi/Mtn Dew and Dr Pepper throwback when it was out.

        • Matt

          Regular High-fructose corn syrup will not kill you any faster then regular sugar. Regular HFCS has only 2% more fructose then plain ole sugar. It kills you faster because we are fat lazy ass americans with nothing better to do than stuff our pie holes with shit that is cheap, and HFCS is cheaper then sugar. That being said, HFCS 90 will kill you faster because it has 42% more fructose, but you wont find this in many foods.

          • ChrisDG74

            I do agree a lot of the people in this country are lazy. The thing with HFCS is that it’s so cheap in comparison to sugar. Since it’s so cheap(thanks to subsidies), people can afford more(or, MOAR!!, if you will). And by golly, if we can afford more, we are going to consume MOAR. I guaran-damn-tee if you did away with tarrifs on sugar and subsidies for HFCS and let them stand side by side, on their own merits, HFCS would be gone.

              I hope that President Obama changes this. He can save us.

            • Gibby

              YES! that is exactly what we need! our government regulating how much sugar, salt, fats, and other yummy stuff we can eat! Because we all know that Mr. Obama knows best!
              I pledge alegiance to the Obama and for whatever he tells me is good!

            • Gibby

              Of course! they had to give me fatass Farley!
              I call Shinanigans!!!!

          • nemesis

            I thought that it was not the fructose content that was damaging but that HFCS breaks down in the body differently to sucrose (turns to fat more easily) and affects appetite differently.

  • ken

    Where is corn syrup banned? I know the stuff isn’t great for you but I didn’t think it was so bad that it is banned. Why is it banned?

    • ChrisDG74

      In the European Union, it’s subject to a production quota. For example: in 2005, it was 303,000 tons, while “real” sugar totalled 18.6 MILLION tons. In Japan, the quota is 25%

      • ken

        I agree about the Mexican (old formula) Coke with real sugar. WAY better.

        Is the corn syrup quota due to health concerns or economic pressures? In the U.S. corn syrup is in practically every processed food, even the non-sweet ones! Best to cook fresh stuff, as if we already didn’t know that….

        • ChrisDG74

          The quotas are due to health concerns(which have been proven in studies NOT done by the corn lobby- it increases the chances of fibrosis of the liver. it also contains trace amounts of mercury). Our wonderful government slapped a big, fat tax on sugar to help subsidize this crap. The subsidies total something like $50 billion in the last 10 years alone.
          ——-I am thinking too much. It’s Friday, damnit.

          • MichaelGS

            wow a reasonble conversation that doesnt involve name calling and reverting back to the war. I dont see any defensive americans about how the rest of the world is just as fat. is this the twilight zone? am i getting punk’d?

            dont want to make this awkward but i think i love you guys *teary eyes*

  • Gordon of Hesselink

    Looks like makeup

  • krisb

    At least they have eggs in them. Eggs are good for you.

    • thatsnotausername

      Yea, that’s good logic.. So i suppose you’d run through a Gauntlet to get a Multi-Vitamin .

  • Mario Mario

    I guess they couldn’t include one of the ingredients, unicorn farts, since that really doesn’t have a viewable solid form.

  • bcbeltes

    Sadly, the first one – made 75 years ago – just passed it’s expiry date…

    This post was stupid. Someone owes me 3 minutes of my life back.

    • jojo

      how the hell does it take you 3 minutes to look at twelve pictures.

      • ken

        Because (s)he is in a hyperglycemic stupor from eating all that corn syrup!

    so not a twink then

  • Clat1

    I dosnt look all that great when you present it like that, but when you mix it all up in the right way it makes quite the tasty little treat.

  • Yazmin.

    I’ve never eaten a twinkie, in Britian we have more sophisticated cusine, such as deep-friend mars bars.

    • Lupivthegreat1

      No wonder, you look so fat in you pic…..

      • Lupivthegreat1

        *your* pic

  • Bob Andrews

    DON’T EAT THAT TWINKIE!!! You never know where it’s been!

  • dt520

    I had absolutely no idea that they put soy in Twinkies. That surprised me enough to survive the grosser parts.

  • Anonymous

    After seeing this, I’m completely off of the Twinkies! From now on, it’s only HO HOs for me.

    • Superfresh

      Ho hos FTW!

    I believe that in order to get the full nutritional benefits of a Twinkie one must go to Freemont St. in Las vegas. They have perfected a way of keep all of the goodness in it by coating it in some kind of crap and deep frying it in more fat.

  • tyler

    The water looks like a vulture.

    Didn’t Sgt. Al Powell answer this question in the movie ‘Die Hard’?

  • davidm212

    Let’s say this twinkie represents all of the psycho kenetic energy in the New York area. According to this morning’s sample it will be a twinkie, 35 feet long and weighing approximately 600 pounds.

    That’s a big twinkie.

  • Nameless

    There’s a box of Twinkies in that grocery store. Not just any box of Twinkies, the last box of Twinkies that anyone will enjoy in the whole universe. Believe it or not, Twinkies have an expiration date. Some day very soon, Life’s little Twinkie gauge is gonna go… empty.
