TWINKIES - AMERICA'S #1 JUNK FOOD!!!
Yeah, you read the title for this week's blog correctly and no, it's not a play on words. You have been debating some hot topics for the past couple of weeks and I decided to give you a break from the political and social issues and let you have some fun - even though the topic is a serious one!!!
The idea for this week's blog comes from one of your fellow APUSH 2 students that had the NERVE to say that Twinkies were terrible!!! HELLO!!! Twinkies, like them or not, are an American icon and just as American as apple pie!!! When the company announced that they weren't going to make them anymore, riots nearly broke out across the nation and people swamped their local stores to stockpile their supplies of this national treasure!!! Once again, AMERICANS spoke and forced the change and Twinkies are being mass produced, once again, from sea to shining sea!!!
So, that got me to thinking... and as you all know, that is a VERY dangerous thing for me to do... and I came up with this week's blog question!!!!
THIS WEEK'S BLOG TOPIC:
Should Twinkies be officially declared, by an act of Congress, America's National Junk Food?? If not Twinkies, what? (yeah, I have to give equal opportunity for those of you - and you KNOW WHO YOU ARE, MA.... that may have a different opinion!)
PS> Be on the look out for the KeyElement & Lord Gehm Twinkies public service announcement coming soon!
