7. Funny what you remember...the pies were once great. (I always loved the corners)

I liked the pink snowballs with coconut also back in the day. Like you (nt) I recently got a package & the cake was dried out and the marshmallow gunk was more gunky & lacked flavor. My husband on the other hand, said "we need to go to the grocery store & buy a few boxes of Ding Dongs." (go figure, he has loved them like forever but we try to stay away from junk food)

I do know that this piling on debt, giving out exec bonuses & selling the company off to the highest bidder is what that disaster of a person Mitt Rmoney advocated. Gov. PondScum pioneered these & other tactics & have changed the culture of business. Restructuring through bankruptcy used to not be a death sentience. This once great American company was 80 years old. So sad for their employees & their families. We heard the recording of Rmoney advocating "harvesting" companies. That's why it's called vulture capitalism. The fact that our workers are the best in the world doesn't matter to rich fucks like him and his ilk..

It is always so sad to see so many lose their jobs. I believe there were 18,000+ or let go right before the holidays. The union is NOT the problem, GREED is.
