All this talk of Ding Dong's finally sent me to the corner stop-n-rob to check things out. Bad news is that they didn't have any Hostess products in stock. Good news is that the whore Little Debbie makes Ding Dong Duplicates. They look exactly the same.

I picked up 4 for market research. Gimme 10 and I'll report back.

A companies responsibility is to it's stock holders so of course companies will try to reduce labor costs where they can.

If you are trying to say that a company should not reduce the cost as much as possible and should not be held responsible to the stockholders, you are a socialist.

If this is the case, you should be true to yourself and should have voted for Obama. He is the more socialist candidate.

We have a problem.

The little Debbie creme filled chocolate cupcakes were a disappointment. The cupcake itself is ok but the filling is less a "cream" filling and more of a marshmellow cream.

I at 2 of them just to see if the first was an anomalie

Its all about the cream filling. Whatever happens they need to get that plant up and running. US, Mexico, I really don't care.

Certi, I believe it is the other way around.

There is a reason Europe is in as much trouble as it is in. They have implemented socialist policies and the companies want to ship the work over seas. They shipped some of it to the USA.

There are several companies making almost the same stuff. I am sure the ding dong vaccume will be filled.

If not, write little Debbie and see if she will make some the way you like. It could be a way of increasing their market share.

If they make Ding Dongs in Mexico they better not have chiles or beans in them. It would taste terrible.

What I do know is what I've stated. I've never had an employer chain me to a machine or force me to work for terms I didn't find agreeable. I also know that if I owned the Ding Dong factory I would move it to Mexico and make the Ding Dongs as cheaply as possible, ESPECIALLY if I had to deal with a union in the U.S. I'd be willing to bet you can train a monkey to make Ding Dongs in an automated bakery.

Furthermore, the investors in the company require a certain return on their investment. If they can't get it they will move their money to another venture.

If I did move it to Mexico, I would offer just slightly above the prevailing wage and the Mexican workers would love me and call me Senor Ding Dong.

I've thought of contacting Little Debbie but honestly, I'd rather remain anonymous. If we get into a conversation she might invite me up for a factory tour, maybe offer me a temp job working in the quality control department. I really don't need that. It would end badly.

Are you afraid the wife will think you are having an affair with Debbie OR are you afraid of getting HUGELY FAT?

Hugely fat

The wife can tell when I've been with Little Debbie. Chocolatey goodness at the corners of my mouth......you never can wipe it all off.

McKee Foods Corporation, a privately held, family-run company based in Collegedale, Tennessee, has sold more than 157 billion Little Debbie® snacks since the brand became available in stores in 1960. If you lined up all those snacks, that would cover more than 9.9 million miles — enough to circle the Earth almost 400 times! That's also enough snack cakes to stretch to the moon and back over 41 times!

I've eaten a coupla klicks worth

I'm convinced Little Debbie and the Hostess guys are in cahoots with the milk lobby.
