Extra Calcium Sulfate With That Twinkie, Please!

Why do people do this?

Somebody broke down and analyzed all of the ingredients in a Hostess Twinkie and wrote Twinkie, Deconstructed.

He must not have heard the old saying, “I used to wonder what was in a hot dog; now I know and wish I didn’t.”

I WRANGLED UP SOME DIGLYCERIDES FOR YA, PARDNER

How nice to know that many Twinkie ingredients are “often more linked to rocks and petroleum than any of the four food groups.”

What next, deconstructing a Jack in the Box taco and totally ruining my favorite late night snack, Twinkies and tacos?

JUST LIKE MOM USED TO MAKE -- OF COURSE, MOM WORKED AT JACK IN THE BOX.

    This is another reminder of how most people live in The Land of Pretend. Fort Worthers are masters of the art. We pretend that drilling in neighborhoods is OK. Pretend we need a heliport. Pretend the Star-Telegram is a newspaper. Pretend Mike Moncrief is a decent man. Pretend the Trinity River is the Guadalupe. Pretend the Trinity is purple. Pretend the TRV is good for FW. ahhh but I’m spoiling the fun. Pass the Twinkies. Just don’t tell me what’s in a Marlboro, please.

    The non-food chemicals in a Twinkie are irrelevant. The “food” substances — almost entirely refined white goop and refined white sugar — are quite poisonous enough on their own. The chemicals are just a lagniappe.

    Shhhh… you are going to scare people into believing calcium sulfate is used as a coagulant in their tofu. They may get wind of the facts and find out most calcium is made of powered rocks and will begin to realize it’s ‘hard’ to digest that stuff. There are lots of kinds of calcium and the newest is a plant-based calcium from marine algae in South America that studies show actually builds bone density. But everyone believes that it’s all the same so let’s not tell them the truth.

    Don Young trashes Fort Worth over an article about Twinkies and Jack-In-The-Box tacos. Jeez.

    Young, have you ever passed up an opportunity to slam Fort Worth?
