Not a big fan of Twinkies but I love their cupcakes. Fortunately they’re still available in Canada, made under licence by Saputo in Montréal.

BTW given their shelf life this may be a good topic for SunkenCiv ;)

Twinkies are OK but I've always been a fan of the chocolate cupcakes.Now that they're gone I miss them terribly.I really hope they return.

What will happen to the "Twinkie Speculators", those who paid insane prices on the net for "the last Twinkies"? I heard Twinkies were bringing $20 for a three-pack and $100 for an unopened 12-pack (the local convenience store pulled all of their stock and sold it on the net).

Wonder what they're worth now? I expect the price to crash when word gets out they're back in production (maybe it has already).

Twinkies I can do without. Hostess Fruit Pies on the othe rhand, especially the Lemon ones, totally rocked!

It’s a win-win for whatever buyout gets the Hostess brand.

A MASSIVE amount of their revenues come from government assistance: EBT “Snap” cards and other food programs, that continue to expand by billions of $$$$ under the Obama regime.

Be real interesting to see what happens with the two unions, the idiots that caused this in the first place. The contracts are still in effect, I believe...but there is no way that any new buyer would touch this without first renegotiating the contracts..

"After years of management turmoil and turnover"

I see.. so it was MANAGEMENT that killed the company, not those union goons who refused to accept a reasonable offer.

Might be a bad investment based on all the hoopla surrounding the situation. Any idea of how many Twinkies were being sold on an annual basis? More of a nostalgia item for those of us born in the ‘50s-’60s. Of course, if I was a business genius I wouldn’t have so many concerns about finances as things fall apart around us.
