    It is alien foam meant to be crushed into a singularity. Fortunately, all Earth children instinctively know that, and have hence been saving us from alien domination by crushing loaves of Wonder Sleazebread into bite sized, component pellets. Or in my case, into quarter sized "holy wafers."

    And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."

      I don't care at all about Hostess products (the workers, that's another story). Wonder bread is disgusting; even as a kid I wouldn't eat it.  Not a fan of Twinkies & DingDongs either.   Little Debbies are way better, IMO.

      Interesting side note:  six years ago when my husband was on dialysis, prior to his transplant, he had a really hard time keeping weight on, because the kidney disease diet was so restrictive.  He couldn't eat much protein, or potassium (so no bananas, potatoes, tomatoes, melons, etc), or phosphorus (milk products).  So anything that was healthy food for me & the kids, he couldn't eat.  His nephrologist sent him to a dietitian for advice.  She suggested he eat candy (but not chocolate) and Twinkies, because they would add calories but had no nutritional value!
