Groupo Bimbo tendered a serious offer to purchase liquidated Hostess brands, makers of the Yuppie icon, Twinkie.

Bimbo would make an ideal marriage partner for the marque as Mexico has seeming inexhaustible supplies of petroleum crude oil.

    I must admit I have a weakness for Penguinos…A bad habit engendered by my sainted mother, I’m afraid.

      I wonder how a gooey, sticky Twinkie would taste with a squeeze of fresh limon and chili powder?

      Last week I was invited to a special steak dinner, replete with baked potato, squash, and small salad. one elderly gentleman carved up his char broiled New York strip into tiny cubes and wrapped them and the contents of his salad bowl in a flour tortilla. Then he carefully opened his foil wrapped baked potato and spooned in lots of mayonnaise. When the apple strudel a la mode was served he waited patiently until the scoop of ice ice cream had completely melted before diving in.
