    Actually the company has filed for bankruptcy well before the strike and has had financial troubles.  It was a matter of time before they were forced to shut down for financial reasons.  Nice how they threw the bakers under the bus though. Not!

    Those things probably would last 40 years too.  Gross.

    Lol to you comment.

    On a more somber note.  I feel bad for the workers who willl lose thei jobs.  My dad was a bread delivery man for 20 years, so it makes me sad to see a company like Hostess go under.

    I'm sad for those losing their jobs, but I don't eat those things so it doesn't affect me.
