    I know one person very upset by this predicament



    But seriously...always kind of sad to see long standing brands doing poorly

    Sorry - but they've done little to prevent the inevitable over all these years.

    They have seen the entire health of the nation shift.
    Everyone has taken on new and different snack options.
    And they responded by doing what - nothing.
    They have had the same snacks and breads . . . they've done little to change with society's interests and preferences.

    Change - is essential to keep a business going.

    And you know - Twinkies are the only thing they make that I eat - I don't like any of their breads and I don't need ding dongs and hohos (which are just disgusting). Everyone got fat - went on a carb-free diet - or went to fresh fruits and veggies - and abandoned a lot of breaded goods in general . . . and they did what exactly?

    They should have slowly shut down and reorganized their business structure over the last 10 years as people became more and more health-conscientious.

    Hehe- excellent catch. I had forgotten about the endless search for the Twinkie.

    He even says the perfect thing for this situation: "Some day very soon, Life's little Twinkie gauge is gonna go... empty."
    But they're stubborn and fighting back so, "Oh, this Twinkie thing, it ain't over yet."

    That's the spirit.

    But serious - Hostess sort of **** itself by not changing with the times.

    Not much of a loss, imo. Twinkies are gross. Little Debbie is a different story.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Teachers strike when the gov is broke but the gov can raise taxes to pay them more, bye bye Twinkies. My advice is stock up if you like the things, they have a 300 year shelf life.

    Just because they are soft and cylindrical, and squirt out white stuff when you nibble on them, that doesn't make them gross.

    Eh, they would have become illegal in this country in a few years anyway.
