OH JOY! PBR Saves The Twinkie
    #662062 - 03/12/13 10:39 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

How PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) Saved the Twinkie

Quote:


Exciting new developments in the Twinkie saga! According to AP, Hostess has accepted a joint offer of $410 million from Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management to purchase the famous brand and its tasty slate of cream-filled confections.

The offer from Metropoulos & Co., which also happens to own hipster-hick beer company Pabst Brewing Co., and Apollo Global Management, which owns Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, was deemed the only viable bid to acquire the historic company. (Our offer of $65, the first season of The Good Girl on DVD, and a lifetime of gratitude was politely declined…)

Hostess caused a national frenzy back in November when they halted 82 years of production of America’s classic sugary snacks—including Ding Dongs, Ho Hos, and Twinkies—due to irreconcilable differences with the labor union.

The beloved snack cakes should be “back on the shelves this summer” according to Metropoulos & Co. CEO Dean Metropoulos.

Congratulations, America—you win.

Anyone happy to see the Twinkie is not gone forever?

I have a 13 year old glass bottle of Coca Cola I have been saving. I got it from the Coca Cola factory in Las Vegas the year it got shut down.
Wonder how it would taste on 7 years.

i get one of those carrot cakes maybe once a year from the vending machine when I'm too high to remember they're not good.

Twinkies tho, I don't think I can smoke enough to forget I don't like them :/ I can't remember the last time I had one.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Urban legand.
It's a pastry packed with preservatives but it's still a pastry.

Oh. And fuck snowballs.
