TWINKIES! I love Twinkies although I haven’t eaten them for a long time since I found out that they are loaded with fat and preservatives.
“A pop-science journey into the surprising ingredients found in dozens of common processed foods, using the Twinkie label as a guide.” http://www.twinkiedeconstructed.com/Twinkiewebsite/Welcome.html
The study was done at the University of Illinois which is located in Champaign/Urbana Illinois. Jim and I lived just 30 miles from the UI. We both worked at Chanute AFB In Rantoul Illinois. I carried a Twinkie to work in my lunch every day until I read about this study. Goodbye Twinkies and now goodbye Twinkies forever. It has been proven that a Twinkie has so much preservative that it will stand alone without changing color or becoming moldy for an extended period of time. It just stands alone and does nothing. And now I feel this compelling need to check out the local stores to see if there are any Twinkies.
On a serious note, the Hostess liquidation is costing 200 jobs in Peoria. So this is a really big thing here.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. I was fitted with the heart monitor on Thursday which I have to wear for 28 days.
Have a peaceful weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
