No more Twinkies !! Mixed feelings.

By November 16, 2012 No Comments

I just read that Hostess is closing down. As a kid I loved Twinkies and Ho Ho’s and do not forget wonder bread, so there is a powerful nostalgia built into me. As an adult with children and a doctor with chronically ill patients I see the harm that these products cause our population. The important point that came to me was the power of social and cultural forces in out diet. Food is a big part of our social experience ( birthday cake, Halloween candies , chocolate Easter eggs etc..). As a culture we need to make new food choices and create a new culture based on healthy eating and not based on big advertising promoting cheep sugary addictive foods for profit at the expense of our health. So on that note GOOD BY HOSTES AND GOOD RIDANCE!
