All hail, the return of the Twinkie!

So, you've terribly missed that oblong, sticky, yellow sponge "cake" with the "cream" filling, eh? Well, the wait is FINALLY over for the triumphant return of the Twinkie!

This comes not a moment too soon as Mexico just took the title of most obese nation from the United States. These overly processed delights are just the ticket to help us regain our rightful mantle as the world's capital of roly-polyism!

Lest, anyone think Twinkies are a poor choice for a healthy diet, please keep in mind that, in 8th grade, I once ate a 6-month old Twinkie and went on to play the best basketball game of my life. So, Americans, nosh away on those Twinkies and Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, CupCakes, and Suzy Q's (oh, they're all back, too!) to your heart's content.
