Default Hostess closes shop AND returns

Still can't find a complete product list. All I see are the brand lists, but didn't realize it was a sign of the apocalypse.

Haven't bought anything from them in a long time, other than home pride bread.

Heh. Grupo Bimbo.

Luckily I don't have a sweet tooth.

The ebay auctions though, have restored my (lack of) faith in humanity.

People actually like this crap ? I have had a few products in the past and have been disgusted on how bad they are. I was hoping this was a sign that fatties were shaping up but it was just bad business moves. Seriously a company that caters to obese space waster goes under in mmmerica ? how ? The best part was some fat lady in a lard mover cart yesterday down the isles in target asking staff if they had any twinkies available.

I'm not at all overweight but used to love a Ho-Ho as a treat. Just saw them somewhere last week but can't remember where it was--almost bought them and now wish I had. Just as a treat.

Just imagine though, if the Grupo Bimbo gets Ho-Ho brand then you can have some Bimbo Ho-Ho's.

Maybe that's why they're interested in the brand.

They're doomed! I was in the CWA and I can tell you first hand their interests are not the members but the union and their peeps, not the members. IMHO unions have outlived their usefulness. No wonder companies manufacture overseas and fuck the people like apples foxCon, sure you can see why I emphasized "Con," lol.

The last I heard a few hours ago, things were looking positive. But we shall see.

And now, those poor folks who went out and bought thousands of $$ of Twinkies, for fear of losing their beloved treat. (Although, as someone said humorously, those things will last years and years! )

Eh kinda liked Funny Bones, but otherwise never thought much of them. They sure do have a lot of isle space in the US though.

Default Let them eat Tasty Kake!

I gonna miss Hostess all that much. I ship in Tasty Kakes. (A Philadelphia Based Snack Cake). Got a case coming in soon I hope. I'll stand by my Butterscotch Krimpets any day over a Twinkie. Candy Kakes over HoHo's. To bad they are only available on the Eastern Seaboard.

mmmmm!

I like the pies, ho-hos and suzy qs, but not the ding-dongs, twinkies and snoballs.
