Hostess may be gone but not Twinkies

Twinkie the kid

Yes Hostess is gone and yes it is a sad day to see a company that been around as long “But” between two bankrupts, union troubles and the push for healthy eating Hostess didn’t have much of a chance to make it anyway .

Will we see our beloved Twinkies,ho ho’s cupcakes and wonder bread again Sure we will Hostess has stated that it will be selling off it brands, so they will be back just not under the Hostess name it may take a bit to get up and running say a year or so .

I think the Bakers Union may have screwed themselves along with their rank and file.Whoever buys the brands may or may not hire back the bakers who went out on strike, They could very well start fresh with their own people not only that but if they hire back the same folks I will bet you now the new contact will be nowhere close to the one the union wanted from  Hostess, but we will have to wait and see.
