I'm sad to see Twinkies close their doors. But on EBAY the box of twinkies I saw someone bid go for $7,100 for 24 boxes of Twinkies and 2 boxes of Cupcakes.

I hope the buyer sticks it to them and don't pay.


Its a free market. Wasn't there a discussion about price gouging, and how it could be good after a disaster?

If someone has the money to waste, let them buy Twinkies. They aren't a critical resource.

The rights to produce Twinkies will be sold. The product will be back on the market as soon as the court allows sale of the name. Making a Twinkie isn't rocket science. There are a number of bakeries that could start making Twinkies tomorrow, if they had the rights to the name.
