With the announcement of Twinkies potential death,

there are those who stood not idle but moved quickly.

Alas, some people know opportunity when they see it.

And as for junk food, may everybody enjoy a glorious round of pies after their thanksgiving turkey. Happy feast to all, and to all a good night.

Every wonder what bugs your turkey eats?

But news has it that Bimbo may pick-up these Blondies.

Everything Coffee
