No more twinkies...?

I can't believe Hostess is shutting down. I'm just so... depressed. I didn't like Twinkies much... or Ding Dongs, but I definitely loved their white powder and chocolate fudge donettes... those were great! Plus, it played a huge roll in my childhood. xD

Anyway, just saying, this is upsetting to hear. If you're not sure what I'm talking about here's a link:

I guess the most I can hope for is the brand names I like get bought...

I never liked anything from hostess to begin with so in a way this doesn't affect me.

I hate Twinkies lol.

But Ding Dongs..... THEY WERE MY CHILDHOOD.

I hate the spin-offs of Ding Dongs, I will never eat them when Ding Dongs are gone.

NO, DON'T GO DING DONGS. MY CHILDHOOD WAS ALREADY RUINED BY MLP: FiM.

I'm sorry, but seeing a status about missing Twinkies when your username is HungryxHungryxHippos made me laugh.

I want to buy a pack of Twinkies and tap them together in the form of cheers with someone as we both salute and tear into them and bravely hold back our tears.

So long, Hostess. :no:

I've never had twinkies before. But that's okay as they don't look like something I'd enjoy.
Isn't there an off-brand knock off still available?

Twinkies? Ding dongs? White Powder? God, the street slang you kids are using for your drugs is getting ridiculous. Back in my day, you just had to huff a can of Dulux Magnolia paint and that'd do you for the night.

The dumbshits striked, knowing Hostess was already bleeding out.

So instead of settling for an 8 percent cut in pay, they settled for a 100 percent cut in pay.

As in no job.

The stupid fucks.

And instead of settling to simply keep the workers' wages the same and sacrifice some profits, the dumbshits who ran the company chose to lose 100% of their profits.

As in NO BUSINESS.

The stupid fucks.

Hostess already dealt with one strike before this latest one. They couldn't afford to keep their employees' salaries at their current level.

Seriously Hostess was already a sinking ship before this strike. This was just the nail in the coffin.

Do you sedulously think Hostess wanted to go out of business?

Hostess was sinking because they made a shitty product. Maybe if they also had spent some of their precious profits developing a less wretched thing to eat than a twinkie, maybe they wouldn't be in the coffin.

Do you seriously think the employees were trying to drive Hostess out of business when they depended on that company for their livlihoods?
