The unions are ruining this country. Yes they are always trying to get more money for the employees, but the union dues are awful and it goes into the union bosses. They are the only ones getting rich. Not the lowly employee. All they can do is pay the dues. I am not for the unions just thinking of the employees. Now they won't have a job.

I like Hostess treats (not that I always eat them), but this is not the first time I believe they went bankrupt either. I am hoping based on the news that another company will buy the branding and restore to a degree some of the tasty treats. I'm still a sucker towards the twinkies.

I grew up on Hostess, but haven't eaten anything but the occasional apple pie (the pocket size) in years.  I've heard about the uproar about this situation, but haven't paid close attention.  I think they're reconsidering or something.   :dontknow:

Yeah it has definitely been madness, I'd figure even if the name brand never comes back, there would be plenty general store brands coming up with similar items or products; I understand it will probably won't be the same, or taste remotely like it, but if it never comes back, we just have to move on, the other option you have is to pay thousands of dollars on ebay for the so called "last Twinkies on earth", lol.

If I ever crave Twinkies that much, there would have to be a real zombie apocalypse for me go ala "Tallahassee" in search for the last Twinkies.

Well, it is an end of an era. With Hostess going out of business, there will be no more Drakes either and of course no more wonder bread. Sad.

 ??? Ok its just crazy about ebay having twinkies for so much inflated price.  I didn't like twinkies that much anyway and hardly ever eat junkie junk but my mom loved the Hostess cupcakes but then Little Debbie has something similar enough to those. Someone will come out with a version of twinkies or buy the "formula" lol.
