more to the point, there is less demand for the products Hostess produces.

Less demand, but not zero demand. There's no reason that these products have to disappear just because the company that makes them goes out of business. If I understand it right, in a bankruptcy situation it's in nearly EVERYONE's best interests for every part of the company that CAN be sold TO be sold, and that includes the brands, recipes, and equipment that make the products.

If Entemann's (for example) makes Twinkies next year, they'll still be Twinkies. Heck, Twinkies made 20 years ago are probably still Twinkies, but that's beside the point. Which is that the mourning is probably unfounded. As long as there is reasonable demand for them, Twinkies will survive.

There are many once-strong food and snack brands and products now extinct, and most of us probably have a favorite. What's yours?
