Especially considering some business will most likely buy the brand and its recipes down the line.

That's what I was thinking, some company will make the hostess products

zonacats8 11-16-2012 10:12 PM

holy crap

I went to a bunch of stores today and they were all gone

went to some gas stations and grabbed a bunch of the two packs of twinkies, ding dongs, ho hos, and snowballs

Just got home from Wally World. The large $1 single serving display was quite full of products. Only the Choclate Twinkees were left to represent the Twinkee Nation. There was plenty left of all other Hostess Products.

they'll be back under the same names, just new ownership

it's just going to take time to find a buyer and then time for them to negotiate with the unions to get them back to work

probably 6 months to a year before they hit stores again I'm guessing.

MarshallCutler6 11-16-2012 10:15 PM

Just saw another one 5 Boxes 200 dollars 31 bids. Absurd, Its just food, you can already buy the off brand stuff, so its just a matter of time before the real stuff surfaces under a new owner.

Regardless, doesn't justify the prices.

Plus don't Hostess snack cakes only last like 14 days anyway?

I sure as hell hope people aren't buying these as "memorabilia". lol

I was also thinking of this, if there was a knock off brand....

Next time some popular food company is going out of business, I'll be buying their stuff

zonacats8 11-16-2012 10:17 PM

So I've got 8 packs of the two twinkies, do I sell them?

Looks like I might be able to get like 100 or more for them right now, hahaha

Imac7065 11-16-2012 10:17 PM

hahahahahahahaha.... god bless the stupid states of America.

Honestly, In all seriousness, I would, you could probably make some decent cash on other peoples insanity.

I think they said they'll still be produced through like Tuesday or something so pretty sure if shelves are empty now all hope is not lost for those who just want to get them before they go away for awhile.

wju2004 11-16-2012 10:23 PM

Oh if only I'd been able to find chocodiles before this all happened. Curse living on the eastern part of the US as I will never get to taste one! (Not that it's probably all that different from eating a twinkie. lol)

HaystaK760 11-17-2012 12:20 AM

I wonder if people will really pay, just bought a box at the store for $2.50 they had like 30 boxes left

Pine Tar 11-17-2012 12:26 AM

Love the line in the description: Will not accept food stamps for payment.

What is the world coming to...

zonacats8 11-17-2012 12:54 AM

On a semi-serious note (if you can actually be serious about Twinkies), if you guys are actually looking for them and can't find them at any grocery stores or like Target/Walmart, try gas stations. They won't have the boxes of them, but will have the two packs, almost every one I went to today had some left.
