    Twinkies are overpriced

    I'm going down to 7-11 and this friend of mine wants me to get him some Hostess
    Twinkies..So I sez "ok I'll get em"...

    I get to the cash register and they ring it up and IT'S 1.68 $$

    I'm like WTF ?? two little sponge cake things with white goo in em cost 1.68 ??

    Jesus Christ on a pogo stick !!...whats wrong with this world ??

    I sez to the clerk "1.68 ??"...an he Sez "ya"...I sez "WOW WTF !!"

    Those were like freaking .25 cents when I wuz a kid...

    little debbie snacks are still 25 cents or 50 cents depending on where I get em, but ya, $1.68 for two twinkies is over the top, even if deep fried

    inflation sucks, at 5% per year it means in about 14 years $1=50 cents

    Have you seen what's happened to the price of corn recently? That's the source of the HFCS used in those things...

    I thought Hostess discontinued twinkie production? If so,t he shortage in supply would jack the price up.
