    No more Twinkies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hostess has filed for bankruptcy and that means, no more Twinkies!!!!!! However, Hostess is selling their brand on Ebay for a low price of $10,000,000.

    If there is ever a zombie outbreak, we are all screwed!!!!!!! Without Twinkies, we will all die from starvation.

    P.S. I really hate Twinkies anyways, unless it is the ones with strawberry filling! YUM!

    Hostess made some good stuff, shame they have gone into bankruptcy.

    The brand isn't going away. They are selling all the assets off. That also includes the brands. Somebody will buy it, its iconic and has good brand association. So distribution will be shaky for a few weeks maybe a couple months til it is sorted out. Twinkies will survive. My speculation though, they are gonna shut down, lay off the entire force and then hire a non union force, or they will auction off everything and the new owners will hire a non union force.

    Somebody get me a doctor, I ain't feelin' ill ...But I ain't feelin' this at all...

    I'll tell you why they had to sellout. back in the 80's, their twinkies and cupcakes had a heavier cream in the center, it was almost as thick as frosting and people liked that, they sold a ton of cupcakes and twinkies. Then for no reason, some $#@!sucker in that company thought it would be a good idea for them to cut corners and use a lighter based cream. point being, they started going the generic route. this selling of the brand serves them right imo. anyone stupid enough in business to change/fix something that isn't broken deserves to go bankrupt, imo.

    You know what's fun to do with twinkies other than indulging in their fine cream-filling?
