    If so, Twinkies might be one of only a few things that survive. At least the roaches will have something to eat!

    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.
    WHAT! Wait I love Ding Dongs....I don't think they are disgusting at all....the kids at my sons college make fried Twinkie's....they roll them in pancake batter and deep fry them.... As for everyone eating veggies instead....have you looked around lately....we are a very fat nation....and lots of bread eaters.....IMO I think what they needed to do was more advertising on TV.....I don't think I have seen an advertisement in for ever....Anyway...I will miss my Ding Dongs and other chic. cup cakes.....

    Just this one plant closed - this one production facility . . . because everyone went on strike and no one was working.

    They have numerous other places still making them.

    They are going to liquidate the entire company Nov 20th if the strike doesn't end.

    The three closings seem to be a show of how serious they are about the liquidation.

    The Union has to suck it up or lose their jobs at this point. Hostess won the right to cut wages in bankruptcy court. That's quite a bit different than the big bad corporation screwing it's employees for the sake of profits.

    Those employees should feel privileged to be making Twinkies for the rest of us, I mean come on!
