That's the problem with Corporate America these days.. It's all about short term gains and self centered / arrogant execs. In the this case the Union leaders contributed just as little. It's no longer about the business... Our country is going down the tubes as well with instant gratification and lack of sacrifice.

Twinkies | eBay
I thought about buying a lot of them and ebaying them off years from now, in case nobody buys the rights and starts producing them again. With all the preservative in them, they probably will still be good. LOL

This all reminds me of Woody Harrelson's character in the movie Zombieland....when he was trying to find Twinkies.

We have a Hostess outlet store directly across the road from our shop. I have been watching people this morning loading up their vehicles with stuff.

I walked over and got the last box of twinkies in the store, which were chocolate filled. My opening bid is $250.

Anyhow, the girl said they were closing the doors next week, and everything was half off.

I bought all kind of stuff then....powdered doughnuts, zingers, bread, ketchup, etc..........you know all kind of things I'll never eat.

That place is as bad as Harbor Freight.

Well, all those that were getting black market prices for twinkies are losing their cash cow. They have announced that the assets have been bought, and Twinkies should be back on store shelves starting in July, with other Hostess mainstays shortly after.
