It seem the Hostess plant is closing down for good. Thats goes for CupCakes, Ding Dongs, Ho Ho’s, Sno Balls and Donettes and Wonder Bread. >.<  There is a sad gamer somewhere in the US crying.

They are selling off the assets, it's a union busting move... that's all it comes down to. The Hostess brand name and recipes will be bought up and remain in tact. Your Twinkies just won't be made by well paid union workers anymore. You can bet that plants will be moved overseas and they will be paying foreign workers 10 cents an hour to make your sweet, sweet snacks.

Good enough for me!

I never ate a twinkie since they don't sell them over here, but literally everything I like sooner or later vanishes form the market. I still morn over my lost indian chicken pizza... the best pizza I ever had the honor to eat. Appereantly my taste buds differ greatly from what everybody else likes, since they replaced the indian chicken pizza I loved with a filthy onion chicken pizza. I freaking despise onions from the bottom of my heart. Now even more than ever.

Twinkies nooooo!
Honestly, I only buy one box of them every semester at some point.
They kinda became an American past-time.
Oh well, back to trail mix.

Honestly all this talk has made me want a twinkie.  My past habits are about 1 every 5 years or so.

I wonder if the publicity will give them a boost in sales big enough to save the company...

Nope, CEOs are selling the assets. And people have bought them up. I work at a Target and the day of this we ran out of the big Hostess items, the day after the less popular ones.

They will return, don't doubt it, dear consumer.

I haven't had one of those since I was a kid, but these are made in Sacramento, a nearby city which has been hammered by huge employers leaving or shutting down this year.  It's been rough in the Capital City.
