My wife and I were at the Puyallup fair (western Washington State Fair) a few weeks ago, and some one stopped us and asked where the deep-fried twinkies were. We just looked at each other and started laughing. Deep-fried Twinkies? Definitely an ode to wreched non-nutritional excess.
Maybe it should be another testJL

We had two that sat on top of the fridge for 9 months. They looked and felt just as "fresh" as the day we bought them.

And did you know that the "m" on M&M's is plastic?
How are they as a "Turing Test" subject :) ?JL

Glad you enjoyed the Twinkie Project. It's been around a "long" time, but it's still funny.

Happy riding.

Not plastic, it is metal compound (IIRC, titanium oxide)

I can feel my arteries congeel just thinking about it. I didn't see any racers standing in line thankfully.

Funny story. I was at the base of the hill shooting the peleton when a rider decides he can't hold it anymore. I have a picture of this somewhere. (How bad a day do you have to have had, when you must take a wiz on Main Street in lap three?) Well there was a bench full of ladies from the temporance society behind me who, in unnison, declared, "Oh my," turned red and promptly returned from whence they came. I'm guessing they won't grace the criterum with their presence next year.
I saw those at the local fair and was curious, butKen of Fresno

just couldn't bring myself to try one. Kinda makes your arteries clog just thinking about it.

Ken,
Also saw them at the Fresno Fair covered with chocolate sauce!

Did you try one?Ken of Fresno

I was thinking about it, but I decided that's just too much fat and sugar in one little package. If I hadn't just gotten through pigging out on a plate of nachos I might have given it a go. What the heck? You only live once right? Besides, just one of anything won't kill you. Or will it???
I saw those too and line of 100 people trying to get one...<nm>Ouch

"Interesting" is the best word to describe them.
I am trying to think of something to compare them with (this from a guy who own's most of the CIA cookbooks and Larousse Gastromique) and I am a big fan of pastries but there really isn't anything quite like it. Was'nt good enought to waste the calories on, that's for sure.

Creme filled donut holes are the closest I can get to it, but it is not the same.
