Hostess is going out of business.

This is an outrage. A world without diabetes is a world I don't want my children to live in.

Wait, snowballs? All of the things you could have chosen, and you pick snowballs?

sad day.

wonder bread will be gone too. even though i don't eat it, it's pretty iconic.

unfortunately the product of a world that's trying to eat healthier, even though americans are consuming more calories than ever.

They will all be around. Just some brands will be made by different companies. And that's assuming hat the bankruptcy goes through. It could all be a ploy to end the baker's strike.

I got offered a job to deliver for Hostess back in the summer but they told me about this possibility so thankfully I declined.

Now time to stock up CupCakes...love them things

Don't hate. I didn't choose the snowball life, the snowball life chose me.

a company has to most likely pick it up and save the twinkies and etc.

if a business can do it right there is a lot of money to be made

Only the strongest survive, and by strongest I mean Little Debbie Zebra Cakes which are better than anything Hostess offered.

Can't anyone else just start making Twinkies and selling them now? There's already store brand twinkies that are pretty much exactly the same thing.

First the store brand isnt close to tasting the same. Second the profit is all in the brand name. Some other company will buy the brand name and exact recipe from hostess. The question for those workers is will they use some off the old hostess factories(seriously doubt it) or just make it in their own factories.
