Many of us ate them in our school lunches: Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes…the list goes on. But soon, those confections made of…well, some real food and a lot of junk… may live only in our memories. And perhaps on our hips, too.  

RIP (retire in plastic?).  

May we eagerly enjoy fresh food that will prolong our longevity, instead of gobbling up the well-preserved confections of yesteryear.
