Twinkies will be no more, so it's time to start trying different twinkie recipes before they disappear.

Although I am quite certain eating just one of these would give me heart disease, High blood pressure, diabetes, and any other diet related disease

There go my hopes of roaming the land, shotgun in hand, fighting off zombies while looking for the last box of Twinkies.

YOU could be the new owner of the TWINKIES brand. Just think...

Exactly. Twinkies are ok but Ding-Dongs rule.

Help nationalize twinkies. Please sign the petition.

But neither can beat the legendary Sno-ball with all those bits of faux coconut that lodged in your teeth.

This morning, on air, no prizes for guessing who.

ďI canít believe this, folks. I simply canít believe it. The Socialist takeover of our nation is now taking away an American icon, Hostess. No longer will we enjoy Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Wonder Bread with our loved ones, but rather we will be forced to chew on carrots and celery like animals! I truly blame the First Lady and her Socialist push for healthy food. This is all Michelle Obamaís fault, I feel as though a part of me is dying. We canít let this happen! Not in America! We need our food made of chemicals and pretend sugar filled with preservatives. I donít like knowing what Iím eating. Carrots?! Apples?! Strawberries?! How boring does this White House want us to be?! Weíre not Americans unless weíre eating things that are bad for us. Itís what makes us great! Iím so upset right now I think I need go to a commercial. Weíll be right back.Ē
And they object when they're called wingnuts.

this thread can be combined w one of the political ones in my opinion. A hedge fund took over the company, and like in Wisconsin made threats to the union and in the end followed through by closing down and putting 18,000 people out of work.
Like you see all time globally the trademarked brand is what has value, vs the employees that make the product. The people controlling the brand will scramble to reestablish a Twinkie baking operation as fast as possible so that the already established distribution and shelf space doesn't go away completely. forever

Good news. A Canadian company has a license to manufacure Twinkies. We can import them from the Canucks. They might even use real sugar instead of corn crap.
