Twinkies are disgusting, i can only hope that they go the way of the Lawn Dart.
When is the last time you actually bought a hostess product? (anyone), with so many generics with the same ingredients and taste I bet it's been 10 years since I have.
And when you really think about it, unless you are high or extremely drunk, twinkies are nasty. Dry little things with barely any filling at all.
The only thing I would miss (if another company wasn't going to buy the pieces and still make all the products) would be wonder bread, and even that I haven't bought in a decade at least.
Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
See how dumb that model is?
His union should never have agreed to allowing Hostess to take their pensions contributions.
A more honest approach would have been that Hostess was simply going to halt pension contributions for that year and the people would have to take a pay cut.
What it wound up being was the employees collectively loaning money to Hostess. Loans get dissolved under bankruptcy. Everyone knows this. That's the danger of loaning money.

I wasn't really much into sweets growing up. I still am not. But my friends and family grew up enjoying Hostess products. It's like a childhood memory disappearing

2. And what is the harm in promoting healthy eating? Do you want our children to grow up fat and unhealthy?
Taking digs at the FLOTUS like that is pretty fucking low in my book.

Twinkies and many other Hostess products are pretty iconic snack foods. I haven't seen a Hostess commercial in a rather long time, not sure if that's a symptom of their failing of a contributing factor. All in all with a product line as safe as what they have, they had to have fucked up somewhere hard.As for complaining how many billions the company took in and "still couldn't be profitable" quote, that simply shows an incredible amount of ignorance when it comes to running a business.
It seems as if you are saying that a complaint regarding wages isn't valid.Almost all I hear from them is how horrible it was that the company was trying to cut their pay. Yeah, it always sucks when you have to take a pay cut. But sometimes the company just can't afford what you're making. If it's that bad and your union can't help, then quit and move on. There's nothing to be done.

An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.
It's possible they did fuck up. It's equally possible that a nation that's sick of producing fat kids began curtailing hostess cake purchases.Twinkies and many other Hostess products are pretty iconic snack foods.

As I said, it always sucks when you have to take a pay cut. If the company can't afford to keep you on, though... something has to give.It seems as if you are saying that a complaint regarding wages isn't valid.
