  1. He likes Ho-Ho’s better.

    Man, I remember when my mom used to put those in my lunch. No wonder I didn’t learn anything in 6-7 grade. I was totally spaced on sugar.

  2. Yup! He would rather eat Ho Ho’s!!! Haha!

    Quilly — this game has just been so much fun! I’m going to MISS it tomorrow! Thank you sO much! And thank you Thom too!

  3. Because they’re disgusting!

    I’m glad I’ve won a day already so the pressure’s off – I would have never thought up an answer. I don’t even know if they have Ho Ho’s down here.

    A baker’s dozen days of Christmas – such fun!

  4. I finally think I know one of these darned things outright and I see a crowd has formed with the same answer. I do believe he likes Ho Ho’s better.

  5. I read somewhere that he likes Ho Ho’s much better!!
    (I was never fond of Twinkies anyways!)

    These days of Xmas have been fun and a wonderful blogging highlight, thanks to you and Thom for hosting it.!

  6. Definitely he likes Ho Ho s better… I mean seriously there is no chocolate in twinkies!

    Does anyone else here remember the chocolate twinkies called chocodiles in the 80’s or is it only me?

  7. Ho Hos it is!!

    I saw Twinkies this summer in West Virginia, remembered loooooving them, couldn’t wait to eat them, and then OMG nearly barfed they were so sweet LOL. Either they changed or I did!

    You and Thom have made this Christmas so much fun Quilly—thank you!!

  8. i have no idea what either tastes like but i hear he prefers ho-hos (judging by the pictures i would, too – although there would be no pun in that)

  9. i’m joining in! honestly the twinkies and the ho-hos don’t get to this part of the globe but yes, i figure the answer HO HOs makes sense. you won’t take it against me if i copied from the others, right? “Ho Hos” it is then!

    thanks for the fun Quilly and Thom! we all appreciate the time and effort you’ve put in to this game just to make Christmas blogging and blog-surfing more fun.

    Mahalo and Merry Christmas to both of you! 🙂


  10. Well, being Santa, he needs to keep stocked up on Ho-Ho’s!!

    This is funny because someone put out a bowl full of individually wrapped Ho-Ho’s at church today. Some of the kids were excited to see them because they LOVE Ho-Ho’s and some of the kids said, “What’s a Ho-Ho?”

    The bowl was quickly emptied. 🙂

    Thanks for giving us such a fun game, and prizes too!!
