It isn’t the twinkies ill miss as much as the wonder bread. That was always the best store bought bread there was. It was the softest bread that took a long time before it went stale. Just perfect for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Now ill have to buy second best brands.

I cna see it now - either repacked as Chinese Baking Corporation Super Good Yum Chocolate Fun Logs - now with more melamine, or the Habib Brother’s Death to America! Fudge Snack Bars, where every box has a one in five chance they’ll explode on opening.

The unions may have been the ones to put the final nail in the coffin, but most of the nails were put in my Bain-type idiots who were more concerned with short-term profits than maintaining the longterm health of a company that provided a product that millions of people enjoyed.

Don't forget the many nails put in by the EPA, OSHA, USDA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Workmen's Comp, Unemployment Insurance, Property Taxes, Health Insurance Mandates . . .

Ahhh ... the feminists hate the name Hostess anyway. Even the conservative radio talk show hostesses seem to go by “host” these days. It looks like the word actress is going the way of comedienne and poetess as well. Waitress might be the only one left before long, despite regular assault.

Bammy folks should be thrilled they hate Twinkies anyway. Try and find one in a school cafeteria, or a lunch bag, since they now examine them, for content.

Keep in mind that Obama told the bankruptcy court to give part of GM to the Union.

That IS something he would do - “give” Hostess to the union.

Rush said there was a petition on "We The People" asking if the President should Nationalize Hostess.

I think that is a white house web site.

“Those guys are still on strike.”

I remember reading one story of picketers outside their former workplace even though the place went out of business years before. Don’t now how true it all is, but with the Union mentality it’s possible...

The brand’s too valuable, and the recipes are unique (eat a fruit pie from the grocery store’s generic brand and you’ll see).

KC started shutting down mills in the US. Same story - unions knocking the sh!t out of them. Atlas came behind them (company started from nothing) and bought up their shuttered plants. No unions, and they are turning a healthy profit right here in the US of A.

IBC is gone, but Hostess will rise again. They will sell to someone who’ll operate it without union bakers, they’ll do a deal with the truckers, and that will be how it ends.

Seattle won’t get their bakery back, probably, but maybe something in Skagit County will open, at least locally.

Bimbo bakeries may buy it - they have the cash. That would give them a HUGE entre to the US market. Nabisco might buy it too.

The same reason Politicians hold the Bad economic data until after the elections. Case in Point Connecticut which is completely controlled by Democrats,last year quietly pass a Law that says economic data on deficits will not be released until after Elections. So after a 2.5 billion dollar tax increase last year we find out Yesterday that the State is 350 million in debt for the first quarter of this year and projected to be 1.2 billion in the hole next year. Never enough folks,never enough, Democrats Lie through their teeth,they never cut spending on anything,its just reductions in the rate of increase and the taxpayers get the increases in their taxes 100% of the time

This is the end of Hostess Bakery Company. It was started in 1930 and died a few days after Barack Obama was reelected

Dolly Madison, Drake's and J.J. Nissan will cease to exsist in a few months.

I'll miss Twinkies...

Thanks UNION!!!

Hostess should offer the union employees a discount on remaining stock. They can eat cake!

Roday the wife and I were shopping at the local grocery store. I decided to check on what stock the store had. Much to my suprise, Two 2, packages of twinkes were left on the shelf.

I would suggest that the formef Twinkes bakers find something else.

many knew that Romney would change many things and where holding out hope that Romney would actually kill Obama care.

They where burning through reserves trying to hold out till after the election.

Then there where those that held out to help Obama because they wanted him to win.

“Can anyone explain why so many companies are announcing layoffs after the election? Certainly their long term business plans showed trouble ahead, before the election, and layoffs would have happened regardless of the election results.”

Only a guess on my part, but they were hanging in there to see if Romney won. If he had, they might have tried to tough it out without layoffs in the hope that the business environment would soon show signs of improvement.

With Obama, there’s only one way the business environment is gonna go. So, might as well lay them off now and get it over with...

I hear you. I don’t eat them often, but man, when I want a treat, I love Hostess cupcake.

I am seriously thinking about buying a bunch and putting them away for ‘later.’ : )

I grew up with Tastykake, which also makes a tasty cupcake and now has a delivery service for folks outside their geographic area. I may have to place an order. I wonder how long this stuff lasts in food storage?

Whe wal mart in Canada was being forced to unionize, they just packed their bags and left...the canadian courts try to stop them from leaving....it didn’t work...they left..When a government is so arrogant as to tell someone they have to stay open, a spit it their face and a train ticket is all that is needed..

Serious delusions.

I've managed union work forces in manufacturing for many years. One thing for certain is that most of the rank and file are entirely and hopelessly clueless about the economics of running a plant. And union leadership is almost as clueless.

So the leadership is clueless, marketing talking points to the even more clueless. So 18,500 people lose a job. The union business model is broken and they don't even know it. Even thuggery can't outsmart economics in the long run.
