Twinkies

Brian loves Twinkies and the news that Hostess is going out of business has upset him terribly.  He needs his Twinkies.  Twinkies last forever.  Right?  He's going to buy enough for 15 years of Twinkies.  In this activity, students examine urban myth and reality about Twinkies.  They calculate area and unit measure when they figure out how many Twinkies per week, how many  millograms of salt per day, and what percent of daily requirements a significant dose of Twinkies supplies.
