Woman with large dental bill becomes Twinkies kingpin


Must. Have. Twinkies. (Reuters photo)

Berkley is 29. She lives in Middletown. She has a $2,000 dental bill to pay off, and so, according to the Frederick News-Post, Berkley bought 30 boxes of Twinkies and joined dozens, perhaps hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of $$$$$$$$$$ dreamers selling black market Twinkies on eBay.

What she paid per box: $1. Her resale price: $11 per box. Her inventory of boxes remaining: 8.

“One person from Japan bought three boxes,” Berkley told the paper.

Berkley is also eating into her potential profits.

“I did save a box for myself,” she told the paper. “I can’t help it, I love those things.”
