    Yeah, and I feel a lot of hostility towards me...your posts come off very cold like you have some issue with me. And I'm not the only one who has noticed it. Someone else brought it to my attention. Do I need to remind you about how you jumped down my throat in that one thread when I said that the OP didn't understand what furries were? I wasn't talking to you and you started yelling at me about how you didn't need to understand anything.

    This is all I'm going to say on the matter as this thread is for talking about Hostess...

    YOUR posts come off just as cold. And I'm not the only one who has noticed things about you either so it goes both ways. I wish I could name one member who has said not so many nice things about you but I won't.

    As for the other issue I can name three members maybe even four who have brought such things to my attention as well. And just like the post I made to DrTooth I wasn't talking to you. As for the thread you mentioned I have no idea what your talking about.

    EDIT- Oh and if I did have such issues with quoting then I really should've lashed out at every person on this board who has quoted me. The only reason it seems like I am the only who has an issue with him is because some members have just stayed silent.

    Why are we fighting over here?
    I thought we were all friends here. This is the reason why certain members have left in the past.
    I don't come online everyday to see everyone fight here.
    Pinky, I like you, and you are my friend, but personally, I feel that you probably should not have said that to Drtooth. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
    You're all great people, I'm going to act like a mod here and end the fight. There is really no giulty person. I'm also going to request to have this hread to be closed.

    Pinky, I hope you don't have any thoughts to leave, We all like you here. :(

    As an attempt to get the conversation back on track...how many of you actually eat Twinkies? I never had one.

    Personally, I don't like 'em.

    I haven't had a twinky in years...I've had a little fun with this over in my video blog and stuff....but truthfully personally I won't miss them all that much...its just one of those things that has always been there so it seems odd they might be gone...but we will all be healthier for it until we find other garbage to eat :)

    Just an update. Me and Sarge were able to work things out and all is well in the Muppet universe or at least in the MC universe. It is safe to post in here again. :p

    And I have only had a twinkie maybe once in a blue moon. I don't hate them but that's another food I'd have to be extremtly craving to eat. I like Tastycakes better. :D

    It was never dangerous to begin with :shifty:

    I thought it was :p but anyways...honestly the only thing I really liked from hostess were their cupcakes. But again I think tastycakes are better. However I do feel bad for the people out of work.

    I went through a phase where I LOVED Twinkies. I think I got over it once I discovered the chocolate cupcakes.

    I alway liked Zingers...and I thought hostess bought dolly madison but I saw a whole shelf of zingers this weekend and it said something different on the label...so I guess they sold some of their assets already awhile back....

    DannyRWW Well-Known Member

    hmmm...maybe I'm wrong because online it looks like hostess still owned dolly madison...perhaps they aren't selling out because no one realizes the connection

    It's good to see that at least some of the workers have been re-hired, even though they're no longer part of a union.

    Uhh... Twinkies never even really went away... they've been on the shelves all this time, only from different companies and with different names (ala Little Debbie's Cloud Cakes).

    That's like saying that Oreos and bargain/generic brand chocolate flavored sandwich cookies are the same. And most of those bargain brands make those cookies taste like sugared dirty.

    Debbie's Cloud Cakes, as ersatz a Twinkee they are, have a completely different (and kinda unpleasant) taste and texture. And their ersatz Hostess style cupcakes are hexagonal and not even remotely like a cupcake. I've noticed my local discount supermarket chain had generic versions as well... didn't bother trying them though.

    All I want is some sort of pie like the Turtle Pie back. We'll NEVER get that back.

    As long as the management isn't as blindly greedy and imbecilic to raise their pay to twice what they saved for doing such a good job at sucking like the last group.

    I mean it's like "Why you call Grimlock stoopit? Grimlock genius compare to Hostess CEO."

    Okay, you got me on that one.

    I prefer the generic store brand over a lot of the name brand foods. I don't like oreos to begin with though. But I'm not a big one for anything hostess or nabisco anyway.

    Fun Fact: I lived about 20 minutes away from a Nabisco factory :p

    Generic food tends to vary. I once had a very good Lucky Charms knockoff that tasted better than the actual thing. Then I once had generic Frosted Flakes which tasted freaking awfully vial. Like they were made out of some terrible sugar substitute and they used too much of it.

    I think I sorta liked Hydrox a little better than Oreos, but I haven't had them since the 3 month period several years back when they brought them back briefly.

    You know, they say that Generic stuff tastes the same, but it doesn't. They do indeed have different recipes. I save generic stuff for inedible goods.
