    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!
