Subsidies for Twinkies

Ever wonder how people came to invent the Twinkie? I can't say I know for sure, but I can say that there's a lot more incentive to create them when 14 of the 37 ingredients listed on the bag are government-subsidized. The paper overall comes across as having been written with the conclusion firmly in mind before they began looking at data, but some of the information accumulated is nonetheless interesting.
