Scandalous! The Twinkie's mysterious past, revealed

A pal just passed along a link to a new book that I could really get into. Just from the title alone, it sounds like the same kind of car-crash fascinating stuff Eric Schlosser explored in Fast Food Nation: Twinkie, Deconstructed: My Journey to Discover How the Ingredients Found in Processed Foods are Grown, Mined (Yes, Mined), and Manipulated into What America Eats, by Steve Ettlinger.

You know, I really don't want to know what's in those naughty little snack treats, but I can't resist finding out, either. I've had my share of snack obsessions over the years -- like my high school diet of jelly-filled Tastykake Krimpets -- but a book like this just might scare me straight . . .
