So don't go on Ebay and buy those $10,000 boxes of Twinkies.

Oh good. They're going to operate the brand for the next 18-24 months. Great! Then THEY'LL be out of $ and it'll all just die.

Too many rules to run the business efficiently. Simple as that. Resigning everyone up isn't going to solve anything.

It gives me time to start stockpiling. I was calling the union's bluff but a life without the occasional sno-ball or chocolate zinger seems kind of bleak

I was skeered of the Mexican Twinkie fiasco. Don't wanna bite into that chemically goodness and spit out a severed finger or a balloon of heroin.

<--- drinks Mexican Coke during snowboarding season. Legalized crack, as far as I'm concerned.

Man, I've been looking for a pack of Hostess Cupcakes, for old times sake. The shelves are bare!

We can only hope that Sun or whoever else buys the brand can keep up the famous quality of the Twinkie.

Remember in Zombieland when Woody was looking for a Twinkie. They won't let them go down so quickly.
