You can still buy an unopened box of Twinkies for $1,500 on EBay
You have to understand the business side of this. The various elements of Hostess will continue on...but manufactured in mostly non-union states. There will be a period when the company is broken up, and pieces sold off. The name for each item is worth a fair amount of money....so manufacturing will start back up by spring of 2013 at ‘friendly’ locations. This whole element is about a business finding a better way to sell their product at a cheaper rate...nothing more than that. The union guys? They really didn’t grasp the game being played until it was too late.
Maybe Obama will rush in and give away another $6 trillion of our tax dollars to “save” the Hostess DingDong Union (how appropriate that is!)
Oh, I forgot. Michelle is against “junk food.”
I cleand out a store of Twinkies and Ho Ho’s today. Woo Hoo - I’m rich now! lol
King Obama is happy with the layoffs. More to collect freebies and become dedicated communists Democrats.
And the union is blaming Romney and Bain for the demise, not their greed.
I blame Moochele the first Wookie.
I’ll never forgive the unions for destroying my Susie-Q’s .....
Government takeover of Twinkies is coming soon, and there will be billions spent developing sugar free, fat free veggie fruit Twinkies produced in carbon free factories by union workers on Obamacare.
No woman with that much junk eats health food. My guess is she’s the iconic poster child for “do as I say, not as I do.”
That said, I bet the First Mooch can polish off a box of Ding Dongs faster than The Bolt runs 100m.
Be proud, dumba55 unions — you unbuilt that!! Enjoy your coming poverty — hope all you union pukes lose your homes.
More specifically, I’m wondering if they would keep in the freezer long enough for weed legalization gets to Texas. Just once before I die, I’d like to re-experience the 70’s with a box of Ding Songs and Twinkies.
Screw you, unions.
The left wing loonies are blaming it on evil venture capitalists. Never mind that the company had over $850 million in debt and could not service the debt without a full workforce. The only ones I feel sorry for are the managers and owners and workers who crossed the picket lines.
