People are already selling them on eBay!
Either way, I work at a grocery store. The frenzy was unbelievable.

All I'm saying is that I'm thankful it was Hostess and not Little Debbie. ヽ(^o^)丿

Sounds like the union did the worst job of all! The exec pay raise does sound fishy but I blame the workers and their union more (shutting down a company? REAL smart). My job had a really nice pension that went from 5% to .25% - these things HAVE to be done today, the Hostess pension and med was simply unsustainable (like Obamacare will be).

You blame the union even though they offered to cut their wages by 8%? Even though Hostess has not changed anything about their brands since the beginning of time unlike other products and companies who wanted to survive? Even though there are no ads for Hostess other than the display you see in the grocery store when you go? Tradition can only get you so far in a competitive market.

I miss Twinkies. Good news? I found a package by hostess with twinkie molds, the recipe, and ingredients. Hallelujah!
