As well as lower paid non-union workers!
Grupo de Bimbos? What the Fluke? Is this one of those “war on women” things?
The artificially high priced sugar is another thing I hate about government. It’s a reason they use corn syrup in soda, a crime... those trade barriers meant to simply raise prices to benefit a few should be done away with.
a better product using cane rather than ‘corn sweetener’.
So do people still think tariffs are the answer?
Now about how the Mexican tortilla manufacturers are doing, they do Guerrero ~ no lard, no trans fats ~ no flour in their pure white corn tortillas.
20 years ago you'd almost always find grit of some kind in any sort of soft corn tortilla from Mexico. Now you get pure white corn tortillas with no grit ~ and their texture is nearly that of top end pie dough!
This morning I had a 2 egg omlette ~ with mushrooms, green onions and 5 year aged cheddar ~ all blended ~ PLUS 4 Guerrero white corn tortillas wrapped around raspberry preserves.
All top quality foods ~ but these tortillas are going to be making a run against your ordinary fluff bread.
Doing the jobs American union-thugs don’t want.
I knew Bimbo would be waiting in the wings to scarf up Hostess.
Our local Walmart in southern DE carries their stuff, as there is a large Spanish speaking population in the area.
I guess Ho-Ho’s are now “Bimbo-Bimbo’s”.
Just making the Twinkies that Americans won’t make.
There’s no better product than corn syrup.
Bring on the stevia, baby.
sugar doesn’t cause diabetes
I won't eat nor drink anything that comes out of Mexican bakeries. Never have, never will. No tellin where those Mexian hands have been. I'd say they don't bother to wash their hands when their shifts start.
They own Thomas’, Entenmanns and Boboli. Also they own some of the Sara Lee brand.
Same company that bought Mrs. Baird’s bakeries in Fort Worth a few years ago. Mrs. Baird’s had been family owned for 90 years.
not if you are diabetic.
Carlos Slim will buy them.
Bimbo owns and operates four bakeries in Texas. They’re an international company. Don’t assume your reborn Twinkies will be baked in Mexico.
Just read the label.
