    That's good haha I finally Googled "what is happening with Twinkies" because I apparently live under a rock and wasn't understanding where any of the jokes were coming from (thought maybe a factory had exploded or something).

    funny to see so many people veritably WORSHIPING a brand, and a junk food brand at that.
    good grief, the power of marketing never ceases to amaze me.

    there's something called 'flour' you mix it with these round things called 'eggs', add some powdered stuff known as 'sugar', and EVEN YOU could make something as good if not better AND CHEAPER than those machine-made fake food products.

    Wall street vultures are blaming workers for getting rid of your sweets—and that’s just not right.

    You might have heard that Hostess Brands, the company that makes Twinkies, Ding Dongs and other desserts, filed for court permission to go out of business, and that its blaming a worker strike for the shutdown.

    The Wall Street hedge fund managers who run the company have squeezed every cent out of Hostess for eight years. And they’ve put their friends with no experience in the baking industry in high-level management positions.

    Hostess workers believe in their company, and we need to stand with them—sign our pledge to support workers, not greedy CEOs who will cut and run for a quick buck.

    What’s happening here is a classic Bain Capital-style assault—blame the little guy to cover the greedy corporate policies that are gutting the middle class.

    It’s not just happening to the workers who make the great products Americans love. What’s happening at Hostess is happening to workers all over this country. It’s wrong. And it has to stop.

    Crony capitalism and poor management drove Hostess into the ground, not the workers who are now paying the price. In this struggling economy, the greedy corporate executives are willing to let 18,000 people lose their jobs—just so they can pad the...

    Workers have borne the brunt of bad decision-making by executives who didn’t know anything about the baking business. And they’re the ones getting fired?

    These brave workers need to know we stand with them—and we’ll stand with everyone who will take a stand against the corporate race-to-the-bottom.

    Everybody has a spin and here is the union side. Bottom line is that you have to run a business, like a business. People go in business to make money and not to provide people with jobs. The jobs are just tools to make money, just like the ovens, pans, and delivery trucks. If Hostess can't make money, then there really is no reason to stay in business. The company is currently valued at $125M and it very well might be the right call to shut it down now and not in 4 years when it's only worth $80M. I for one will be shocked if somebody doesn't buy them out. I'm sure some of their products will never be seen again, but certainly Twinkies will be back.

    Evidently you don't understand business. When sales decrease, you have to decrease your costs. As in shut down some production facilities, reduce the work force, and lower wages. The bread/bakery industry has been suffering as a whole for the past 10+ years with everybody's low carb life style. So it's no surprise that Hostess has suffered as well.
