I know! I'm SO glad they put it in AFTER I retired. It's pretty damn embarrassing being a cop in uniform and standing in line at a doughnut shop.... that's why I always went through the drive-through at the Krispy Kreme whenever I was in Roswell in the patrol car. lol!

I haven't had a Hostess product in a good twenty years, seriously.

I also haven't had fast food in over 10 years. One thing I do at this point in my life is cook a lot and eat healthy. I enjoy it and I feel a hell of a lot better now than I did when I was in college twenty years ago.

However this does not mean that I have no opinion on snack cakes. Twisted Evil That said in the world of packaged snack cakes, IMHO (Dave is correct here), nothing and I mean nothing comes close to freshly made Tasty Kakes. They are amazingly good when fresh, and like any real baked items, they suck after sitting around for a spell. But hey, that's the way it should be right? Don't tell Hostess (the king of plasticized frosting) that though. Their snack cakes belong on a shelf in the Mutter Museum. SICK Evil or Very Mad

It's all gross.

That said, I just told my family members to go buy all the twinkies they can find. In a decade or so when nobody can find them anymore, I will sell them on ebay for like a billion percent profit. It's not like they will go bad, I can just store them outside. They may even keep the stray cats away and the birds from pooping all over my deck.

It's a perfect plan. I've only shared it with you all out of the kindness of my heart and fondness for the brothers here, so that you too can take full advantage of this potential windall. lol!

Dave, this is just mean to do to a pregnant woman Twisted Evil . I've never had one, but read the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich and they are all over the place. You should really think about adding them to your monthly bombs......just saying.

I have been surviving on vanilla zingers and water for the past few weeks.....I know it sounds weird, but it's one of the few things I can keep down. I guess I'll stock up at the store tomorrow.

Kaiser....you want I should send you some ho hos?? Or just amass a collection of them to send you at Christmas time?? Laughing

I have no great love for Hostess. Used to eat those crappy sugar sweet cakes as a kid. They were great back in the day.

Here in WA state they will be closing 6 facilities. And hundreds of living wage jobs lost.

That's the tragic news!

Mad


Cheers,

RR

It really goes with out saying that I'm going miss Ding Dongs. They were, after all, a staple of my diet during my formative years. The lack of Hostess' other nutritious-yet-sensible goodies will surely leave a huge void in snackdom as we know it. It hurts me to think that a child born today won't know the joy that is Ho-Ho's.

I believe there is a positive way to weather the impending famine.

Brother Frost wisely pointed out that cellaring now could pay great dividends in the future. Hostess products are known to have a shelf half-life of appoximately 450 years. In fact, it is speculated that the only two things capable of surviving a nuclear holocaust unharmed are cockroaches and Twinkies. A generous supply in storage now could mean years of enjoyment down the line, not to mention the investment potential.

Think about it, we did survive the Dunhill tobacco hiatus and even thrived in some cases. Japanese fishing conglomerates have massive stores of Bluefin Tuna frozen so they can sell it at a premium when the species is extinct. Who's to say that a Hostess time capsule on Ebay couldn't put the kids through college in a few years?

No mismanagement. They have been operating under Chapter 11 since the beginning of this year trying to get things back on track. They had about 5000 workers (I think that number is right) from (I forget the name of the specific union) the union that walked out last week. They couldn't reach an agreement on paycuts/pension cuts to keep the factory they walked out on going. Hostess gave them until Thursday morning and no one budged........

Let's see, take an 8% paycut or else... scratch

Oh well, now they can sit at home and collect unemployment benefits and get their free Obamaphone.

I keep waiting to hear that it has been resolved and operations are going to resume. But, the more time that passes the less likely that is.

It sure is sad though

At wal-mart today, folks were picking up remaining hostess products pretty quickly. One on his cell, "I can't get you four packages, there are only three left. . . ."
