    I can't remember the last decade where I consumed any of Hostess' products so I suppose I'll manage to survive. Nobody needs a Twinkie, but a lot of people who need jobs don't have them any more. I understand it was a self-inflicted wound -- a nationwide strike did the junkfooders in.

    In keeping with forum rules against political comments I will only say “There goes the Twinkie defense”.

    Not just Twinkies, Wonder Bread too.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I don't think that I have actually eaten one in the past decade either however, the option to consume a twinkie is now GONE!!!!!!!

    We don't have Drake's in FL so I sometimes buy Ding Dongs, and argue with the kids that I will only call them Ring Dings, no matter who makes them, I believe Drakes is owned by Hostess anyway. Growing up we'd go see my grandparents in VT every year and my grandfather would always have a plate of Ring Dings for us for dessert. Especially when I'm feeling nostalgic, I'll buy a box of Ding Dongs for the kids and I to share while I tell them of my Papa Bud, I've never been able to see one without thinking of him. I see a trip onto town today to grab a box, although I know it will take awhile for them to come off the shelves completely. It's kind of dumb but my computer screen went blurry for a second when I realized they've shut down the bakeries...

    When Twinkies return to the shelves with a "Made in China" label, I don't want to hear any complaints from the unions.

    With Hostest down we'll now have to buy BimBo Bread products! Their fortified with mind numbing supplements from Mexico! That what they feed Mexiforians aka Kalifornians aka CommieFornians aka Left Coastians, etc. They seem happy with more taxes and a lower standard of living!

    I love Twinkies, though I can't stand the same company's Wonder Bread.

    Anyway, fear not. They will get made in China, with even more chemicals, and then be
    shipped here. They'll be back.

    You can bet the "bankrupt" company will sell their patents, trade names, trademarks,
    manufacturing technology, and all of their intellectual property. Maybe they will simply close shop
    here and move to China. In a few years we'll be eating Twinkies contaminated by G-d knows what--
    same as with Chinese made dog treats.

    Can you imagine the size of the Twinkie market over there?

    Maybe they'll close up and re-open under another name in a Right-To-Work state.

    Unions have to understand that sometimes "NO" means "NO". It's about time. The days are long gone when Unions actually looked out for their workers safety, health and well being.

    It's kind of sad to think that there will be no more Twinkies.
