Hi all here is your humor of enjoyment
The Dark Side Takes a Hit…
…and by the dark side I mean Hostess, folks. Not exactly the diabetic's friend when it comes to carbohydrates and sugars. After an 82 year run…Hostess has been forced to go out of business during failed labor negotiations. There's been a run on the stores like some precognition of a nuclear holocaust. When I heard the news yesterday I jumped in the vehicle and headed for Supermarket. The Hostess section…wiped clean. I grew up with Hostess. Hostess was my go to snack along with a pint of chocolate milk. Me and Hostess had history.
After I became a diabetic me and Hostess parted ways. The chocolate cupcakes with the chocolate frosting and the little white curly que across the top; the apple and the lemon Fruit Pies with a pint of half & half; the Orange cupcakes I'd only crave after sex; the Twinkies I always wished had more cream in them; and the little 6 pack of Donettes that I'd plan to just eat three…and then eat the other three in a feeding frenzy. When Lay's came out with their "Bet You Can't Eat Just One" slogan for their potato chips…I often thought of my Donettes- "Bet Ya' Can't Eat Just Three!"
As collateral damage I'm loosing the bread I've eaten since I was a kid. Wonder Bread. Wonder Bread was under the Hostess umbrella. I like Wonder bread. Now I've got to interview a line of wanna-be-my breads until I find something that's close. I go through a loaf of bread about every two weeks. At two loaves a month…I should find a replacement by next spring. I'd thought about maybe making my own bread…but it didn't sound that appealing once I was sober.
America losing Hostess is going to be like a crack addict finding out someone just killed his drug dealer. A reaching simile, yes, but I'm in mourning.
Have a good weekend. Me and Jack will…burp
