Hostess Brands Inc. on Friday sent out letters notifying its more-than 18,000 workers that they could be laid off in the next two months.
The maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread on Friday mailed out WARN Act notices to all of its employees, a Hostess spokeswoman confirmed to Bankruptcy Beat Monday. The federal WARN Act requires companies to give employees 60 days notice before closing a facility or ordering mass layoffs. However, sending the notices doesnt mean a company is definitely going to lay off the recipients.

Perhaps this will become merely a memory - instead of an option.
You made my day!
That would be a Ring Ding. Got to keep your Ding Dongs separate from your Devil Dogs, Yodels, and Ring Dings. Personally, I will be renting a storage unit to hoard all my synthetic Hostess “baked” goods in. You never know when you’ll get a yen for a Yodel. If you ever see it auctioned off on Storage Wars, you’ll know that was me.
I personally think they raise the prices (soda, chips, medical supplies, fast food items, etc., etc) because they can. A few cents at a time so the price gouging is under the radar unlike the gas prices that are front and center.
Since you brought up the topic, this is a classic in that space:
Yeah, I assumed rationalized, since it doesn’t look like you rationed anything much. Personally, I’d do the box on a slightly long ride home from the market. I’m not trusted around artificial food.
Unions didn’t make pot illegal.
The government did and since it is illegal we should just throw up our hands and let Michelle Odinga ban anything she wants?
We should just give up?
They’re out of TN, so almost certainly non-union.
I had some guys I worked with ~25 years ago who were addicted to their stuff. Me, I was never much for junk food of any sort.
Ho Hos? Ding Dongs? Cheeze Whiz
Best if all this crap was off the market. “
Fie! You’ll pry the Cheez Whiz from my cold, dead hand. If I could visit one moment in the past, it would be a toss-up between the moment Tchaikovsky thought of putting cannons in a symphonic overture, and the moment the words “aerosol” and “cheese” first came together in someone’s mind.
Yeah, we got lots of exercise walking back and forth to the candy store.
You nee to either get a bigger butt or try Viagra.
Oh yes...all the caffeine and none of the calories! (Though look into using actual loose tea instead of teabags...a 100% improvement in taste!)
I think inflation is more of a cause than anything else (though we officially have none). Our tolls just doubled here in NJ; everything costs more (gold, foreign currencies, etc.) because the IOUs are weakening our dollar.
Playing outside until dark helped.
I once found a can of Minute Maid that was 100% fruit juice instead of the soda-type and it was the best thing I ever drank.
Thanks; I’ll definitely give that a try. I have to do something; it’s one thing to be heavy, and another to have just this grotesque gut.
Hostess used to be part of Wonder Bread, in the Philadelphia area, anyway.
I’m not familiar with a Minute Maid soda-type drink; what do you mean?
This story is about HO HOs, not HOs.
