That's the only Hostess product I've ever liked. Tastycake is king

Hostess is in bankruptcy and the court ordered reductions in pay...the union went on strike,despite it not being the companies decision.
Hope they find a job since they obviously don't want that one

Poor Andy Reid can't catch a break this year. He's probably losing his job with the Eagles and now Twinkies are going away too.

This just in: Little Debbie gloating, drunk and completely obnoxious today. Just keeps repeating "I got your Twinkie right here."
37 ingredients Twinkie eaters ingest
More, including a fun pictorial, at link. Plus, I noted this comment at bottom of page:
Now I know where LSF worked!I was doing fine reading through all the ingredients until I saw they included at least three derivatives from Soy. Soy will sterilize males, and this is just another left-wing feminist conspiracy to destroy us males.

I was listening to the radio on the way in from work today, and the person calling in was a Hostess salesman/distributer. He said that the company had been bought by a hedge fund, they had spent the last few years cutting back and selling off pieces of the company, and that they decided that the real estate of the various Hostess factories and offices was worth much more than the company as an ongoing business. Blaming it on the union is just an excuse for completing what they had been doing all along. I do know that Hostess had a large bakery here in San Francisco on Potrero Hill, and that it was closed and sold to developers a couple of years ago.
I don't know what the real answer is, but I thought I should throw that out there. It's just as reliable as a shamelessly biased article from the zerohedge.com blog.
"The Internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea: massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it" - I wish I had said this.
(They have/had a plant here in NC and about 275 people lost their jobs. That area doesn't have the best employment options either)
What's a twinkie?
Did Hostess ever make anything that wasn't toxic garbage?
All their stuff was revolting and unhealthy.
