Twinkies are not food. At best, they're a collection of dodgy chemicals dipped in sugar. Good riddance to it, I say!
Shame about the jobs, though.
Always someone with an agenda to spread... sheesh
Enriched wheat flour, sugar, corn syrup, niacin, water, high fructose corn syrup, vegetable and/or animal shortening – containing one or more of partially hydrogenated soybean, cottonseed and canola oil, and beef fat, dextrose, whole eggs, modified corn starch, cellulose gum, whey, leavenings (sodium acid pyrophosphate, baking soda, monocalcium phosphate), salt, cornstarch, corn flour, corn syrup, solids, mono and diglycerides, soy lecithin, polysorbate 60, dextrin, calcium caseinate, sodium stearoyl lactylate, wheat gluten, calcium sulphate, natural and artificial flavors, caramel color, yellow #5, red #40
yeah, that is a list of dodgy chemicals... nothing different there then what you get in most other foods made on a large scale
since the majority of the thing is Enriched wheat flour, sugar, corn syrup, niacin, water, high fructose corn syrup, vegetable and/or animal shortening I'd say it was doing pretty well on the normal ingredients list..
