Seven Writing Links -- Volume 134

Last weekend, my wife and I were driving up north, and along the way we stopped at one of those convenience stores to pick up some traveling snacks.  Imagine my surprise when I spotted the following box. 

They're back, folks!

Hostess came out of bankruptcy a year or two ago, and although they've slowly been releasing their original lineup of snacks (Cupcakes, Twinkies, Ho-Hos), as far as I was concerned, I wasn't considering Hostess back until they began making Suzy-Qs again. 

Admittedly, they're smaller than before and they aren't using as much filling, but they're still pretty good, especially after sitting in the freezer for a while.  

So even though writing progress was a bit on the slow side, I still consider the week a win.  

Enjoy the links and the weekend!

  1. I remember those. Smaller? Probably good it's a smaller dose of sugar.

    1. It just means I'll have to eat more of them. :)

  2. I just bought some Twinkies at my local store, thinking, "But aren't they out of business?"

  3. I've always been more of a Little Debbie than a Hostess person. But I can relate to your surprise. I remember feeling the same way when I walked into CBS and saw a row of Nutty Bars. Unfortunately, like the Suzy Q, they're smaller than before too.

  4. I think I've eaten A Suzie Q. I think. Definitely twinkies. Not proud of that, but yes, twinkies for sure.

  5. Did you know that you can shorten your long links with AdFly and get $$$$$$ from every click on your shortened urls.
