Farmers Market Thursday Opening Delayed
Wind postponed the opening of the Thursday Farmer's Market, however the usual Saturday Farmer's Market went as planed. Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle picked up a dozen eggs and 2 lbs of ground turkey from the Colony, and it only set him back $6.25. Next Thursday being Jerry's birthday, would be a great time to try it again!
Twinkies Are Back by Jerry Hinkle
Yesterday, the first batch of Twinkies have landed on store shelves all over the world. Time will tell if the next time around will be any improvement. As for me, I'm less them impressed. I went to Walmart to do a little comparison shopping. I discovered that not only does Little Debbie have there own version of the Twinkie, but so does Sara Lee. Not surprisingly, Walmart also has a knock-off version of America's favorite snack cake: the Cloud Cake.
I purchased a box of both Twinkies and Cloud Cakes. The new Twinkie is visibly smaller than the Cloud Cake, and it weighs less as well: 38.5 grams compared to the Cloud Cake's 80 grams. There is, to me at least, no difference in the taste and texture. The kicker is that the Cloud Cakes are 50 cents cheaper in the 10 count box.
We'll see if the change of management will help keep Twinkies on the shelves and in demand. I hope those of you who have missed Twinkies all this time are not disappointed. Don't you just feel sorry for those people who paid $1000 for the "last box" of Twinkies? I'd whole lot rather have a creme filled cupcake myself. God be with you and do the best you can!
