Sorta O/T No more twinkies? UPDATE
November 15, 2012 at 12:26 PM

 Say it isn't so, my husband would be so devastated not to have those Hostess treats on a regular basis, well that and the loads.

UPDATE, the curfew passed and now Hostess is going into Federal court tomorrow to try to start liquidation of the entire company. Companies can start closing as early as Tuesday.

    I like twinkies well enough and have them a few times a year but they reall are unhealthy and I don't think I'd be devastated if they were gone forever.  you know you can look online for recipes to make your own

    They are disgusting.  I am more saddened for the workers who will lose their jobs.

    It is, unions won't accept the pay terms set by the courts. So I guess unemployment is better.

    I don't care about twinkies or hostess at all, my husband however it's pretty much all he has access too when he stops at truck stops along his routes. He loves a little sweet crap.

    Everyone wants the rich to give in and pay more taxes and take cuts, but the Unions won't take any cuts that ensure employment. Shooting themselves in the foot.

    Instead of negotiating a increase as the economy gets better, they'd rather the bread lines. Wait, those to will be closed. We eat a lot of wonder bread, guess I need to learn the recipe quick.
