    And if you even bother to read the article and not just sit there being completely ignorant:



    Clearly Obama's fault! This absolutely would not be happening exactly the same if Romney was elected.
    ^this
    People just need something to whine about imo.

    Pouring premeasured ingredients into a hopper or putting 6 wrapped cakes into a box is something that shouldn't earn more than minimum wage, but because of unions, it does. And that's why a box of twinkies costs $5, and why I stopped buying them a long time ago.
    Like I said, they pushed too hard and lost. That's how unions work.

    The Twinkie reference from Ghostbusters will be meaningless to future generations! Well....not that they would watch Ghostbusters anyhow.

    Oh no no no no. We must educate the next generations of the awesomeness of Ghostbusters, and force them to watch and like it. And educate them on the awesomeness of Twinkies, and, if available, force them to eat and love them too.

    By the way, the whole "they stay good forever" deal is a myth.

    Besides, as if starving children from those who lost their job is not significant in a 1st world country.

    just bought ho-hos, 6 double packs of twinkies and 2 boxes of zingers, i can live until production resumes, man this is gonna make me put on a few.

    I just realized that this includes wonder bread items as well. Now that sucks its the only bread my kid really will eat.

    This is a dark day for humanity. Twinkies were a major deterrent for nuclear war. being the only food to survive a nuclear war, nations would be much more cautious as to not doom us to eat those things. Now, we're doomed, DOOMED.

    Convince him his favorite celebrity or cartoon character likes real bread, A la Michael Jordan eating Wheaties.

    Good, these snacks are pretty nasty. Both taste wise and health wise.

    You'll have to import. Wonder bread will keep being made in Canada by Saputo, Hostess bankrupt or not.

    My kid loves that whole wheat white wonder bread, will have to see if there is another comparable brand.

    Independent bakery's already make twinky like products that put actual Twinkies to shame, that being said I will still miss my Wonderbread as well as many other hostess goodies be it the small pies or even the little raspberry&coconut things.

    I would really miss the Raspberry filled powdered Donuts but I haven't seen one of those in years as Hostess has only been circulating them in larger cities and even Walmart hasnt had Access to them around here in over 10 years.

    Either way I must applaud Hostess for not caving into the demands of the Union and maybe our government will now pass a law to prevent the thuggery/blackmail caused by Unions.
