Los Twinkies

Twinkies Like most Americans, Steve Ettlinger eats processed foods. And, like most consumers, he often reads the ingredients label—without a clue as to what most of it means. So, when his young daughter asked, “Daddy, what’s polysorbate 60?” while eating ice cream at the beach on a hot summer day, he was at a loss—and determined to find out. Twinkies Deconstructed. (From Derek K. Miller). Not good - Beef Twinkies

The pie chart reminds me of "Pie For Strength," the motto of the Park Cafe in St. Mary, Montana:

I don't know if this happened for anyone else, but that Twinkie page looked like ass in Firefox (as in "unreadable", not the good kind of ass)

We don't get Twinkies in Northern Ireland, but we would see them talked about on TV etc. I always fancied trying one, but I'm not so sure now, the thought of Pollyfilla kinda puts me off.

When eating American junk food, you must follow a process:
1. remove said food from package
2. close eyes
3. place said food in mouth, enjoy
4. NEVER read the package
