They're not going anywhere. There's too much money to be made, someone will continue making them!

Yesterday's news said they would mediate rather than shut down. A great marketing ploy to get them free publicity I would presume.

I've gotten them at Plaza. They were not as good as I remember though.

Twinkies? Yuck!

Those things should just be labled as hazardous to your health.
It would not be a great loss to the world in general if they stopped making them and people would probably be healthier for it.
Stock up now if you really love them and you will still be able to eat them in 20 to 30 yrs.

The REAL question is how they got here. The problem is GREED by everyone. The management staff and the unions!!!

They drove this once great company to nothing. Now the options are limited. One of which is to sell it to Mexico. Think about that. One of the greatest companies that has plenty of demand for their products could be sold to Mexico.

Take a bigger picture look. Think about the all the businesses in our country and were they are going.

It is a sad sad state of affairs.

I may only have 10 -20 years left on this earth. I really wonder what will happen 20 -50 years out. I am very sad for our future.

Hey Billd...I share some of your pessimism. As Bob Dylan said back in 1964 (almost 50 years ago) "The times they are a changing" . Back then some of the most amazing changes happened. In the US it started to right some wrongs...but... It is been tougher since then. It seems we haven't learned the lesson. Sometimes the minstrels and musicians tell us the truth.

In the world today, I see union bashing, intolerance and uncivility every time I turn on the TV. Some power groups have picked the unions as scapegoats in our current economic mess. The unions despite their own bad leadership are just trying to defend the middle class workers, but they are not doing a very good job of it. The unions have very little to do with the economic change in the USA or it's place in the world community. The problem is ..... The times they are a changing...

Perhaps Twinkie should be made in China. Their long shelf life would facilitate the extra shipping time.

DC: I'm getting to that age when some of my memories have been altered from the reality of the event/item. I don't remember Twinkies having frosting with squiggles. However, the Hostess cupcakes, my favorite, sound more like what you are speaking of. I never could get into plain Twinkies because for me it's all about the frosting.
