I live literally within a stones throw of where the twinkie was invented and was produced until last year. I noticed a few days ago quite a bit of activity including deliveries at the shuddered factory that has been completely quiet. I don't know for sure, but I assume they must be planning to produce the Twinkies at the same place they used too.

I never could understand the connection between these two, but then again I was not raised in the south, so I don't knock it.

This is from the article. Do you live near Schiller Park? That's the only Ill location it mentions. They mention Emporia, but that's Kansas I believe.

"Besides the Georgia location, Hostess Brands, LLC also bought plants in Schiller Park, Ill.; Emporia, Kan.; Indianapolis, Ind.; and the Atwater Village section of Los Angeles, Cramer said. At least some of those will resume operations simultaneously with Georgia. Emporia, which is already hiring, according to listings on online job sites, will likely be among the reopened locations, he said. Corporate operations will be run out of Kansas City and Dallas."

It's a little off-topic......but we're in the off-topic forum so it's all good. This might answer that.

You can read the history of the moonpie at their company website, as well as scroll thru it. It's fairly interesting, especially how moonpies were invented originally for miners.

MoonPie | About

As my fellow southerners have pointed out, it's still a favorite down here.....and depending on what/where you attend Mardis Gras parades, they throw moonpies from the floats.
-----------------------------------------------
Here's even more on the subject of moonpies and rc.



Moon pies had reached a peak of their popularity during the 1950s, when many workers bought them as an inexpensive snack to tide their hunger for a while. Around this time, the typical cost of a moon pie was about five cents, and a soda to drink was also a nickel. The popular legend of moon pies states that R.C. Cola became the drink of choice to accompany a moon pie, because a serving of R.C. Cola was typically larger than a serving of Coca-Cola or other sodas. The combination of "an R.C. Cola and a moon pie" became inseparable, and was often referred to as the "working man's lunch." (A novelty song in the early 1950s called "An RC Cola And A Moon Pie" became a popular jingle of the time. The band NRBQ later recorded a different song called "RC Cola and a Moon Pie" which was so popular among their fans that they held a series of concert/gatherings called "Moon Pie Festivals"). At an average cost of ten cents, the food combination became an institution...
----------------------
The official Moonpie website says,

"By the late 1950's, the MoonPie had grown in popularity, so much that the bakery did not have the resources available to produce anything else. The phrase "RC Cola and a MoonPie" became well known around the South, as many people enjoyed this delicious, bargain-priced combination. "

And this comes from About.com:
--------------------------
The MoonPie hit the markets of Chattanooga Tennessee in 1917 and R.C. Cola arrived in 1934. They were an instant success when they combined forces in the 1950's. You could buy a RC (Royal Crown) Cola and MoonPie special for 10 cents, back then, that was a full 16 ounces of soda and the MoonPies' weighed about near (that's southern for Approximate size) a half pound.

This combo was soon labeled as the instant fast food lunch of the fifties. Although it's never been acknowledged that the merging of the two was a planned marketing strategy or just plain luck.

-----------------------------------------------

If anyone happens to be near Bell Buckle TN in June, you might want to stop by their RC/Moonpie festival
