If they go out of business, oh well - I'm certainly not buying them just to keep them in business for nostalgia's sake.
Neither will anyone else apparently. The Hostess company is liquidating.
After the company had been through two bankruptcies you'd think the union would get the hint. Union intransigence has run their workers right out of their jobs.
Don't expect to see Twinkie Withdrawal Centers springing up all over the nation though. The last time I went looking for a Twinkie in our supermarket I had search through several (locally made) genuine imitations that looked the same.
