    My inner fat kid is trying to break free in rage and disbelief. I bought a box each of Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, and Ding Dongs to try and supress it.

    In the meantime, I'll be stocking up.

    Given their brand equity, it is almost a certainty that Hostess (or at least its assets in terms of its product line) will be purchased by another company and production will resume.

    The twinkie can be hurt, but never truly defeated. When all is said and done and our grandkids live on mars, twinkie's gonna be doin fine.

    They should return to putting the banana flavor in the sponge of the Twinkies.

    What I will miss most, if they leave... is those single-packed apple pies.

    Since I've never actually seen a twinkie in my life. This news has no effect on me at all.

    If they go, I will miss Ho-Ho's the most. Little Debbies are fine and all, but they just don't do the same trick as good ol Ho-Ho's.

    Guys, they're filing for "Chapter 11 Bankruptcy". They will not just drop everything and halt production. That's part od what "Chapter 11" prevents.

    I feel bad about celebrating over somebody's unemployment, especially in this economy, but I have to say that I would not be one bit sorry to see Hostess go away and never come back.

    Did the CEO of Hostess cut you off on the freeway or something?
