Where’s the Beef? A Vegetarian Ponders His Last Twinkie. (video)

Hostess Twinkies2012 has come to a dramatic close. We have battled through the end of the world, the fiscal cliff, devastating storms and mass shootings. But I wanted to close the year on a somewhat lighter note, although it does relate to the unfortunate turn of events that forced Hostess Brands, Inc. to shut its doors. Really, what could be lighter than a cream-filled Twinkie?! (You may take that as a rhetorical question or respond to it in the comments section.)

Watch the video to find out the surprise I got when I picked up some Hostess snacks and found that a number of them might contain beef fat. Yep, it’s a real pickle for a vegetarian with a sweet tooth hankering for his childhood treats one last time.
