What's bad is, while it really may not affect me directly (I hardly eat those snacks...), how the hell do you explain to someone who has a hard time understanding things, that he can't buy Hostess snacks anymore? Brother with autism, for those that may not already know.

Well, I take it Hostess's soon-to-be-former CEO won't be featured on Undercover Boss anytime soon...

But meh, I seriously doubt that these landmark American bakery goods are just going to die out like that. I could easily see them being bought out by other subsidiaries, even if they're no longer under the same name.

But seriously, Twinkie rip-offs with different brand names have been around for years. We even have those over here.

Well aware. I've even tried a few of those off-brands when I was a kid. Never quite tasted like the real deal, though.

Besides, whoever buys up the Twinkies brand will also have the formula for the original.

Chalk that up to dumb ass union people. They had a choice of pay cuts or no money at all. They chose no money. My neighbor sells Little Debbie snacks and he's happier than a witch in a broom factory.
