I still haven't gone to any type of store that would have Hostess products since the announcement.

I won't "miss" these persay but just seems hard to believe ALL stores are absolutely selling out of these things. Especially considering they'll keep being re-stocked through like Tuesday.

From what I hear the last bunch will come in on Monday morning. That will be my last hunt for these most likely. They should go up in value once they are completely gone. I'm guessing it will take at least a few months before a company buys them out, and more start getting made. So should be a good amount of room/time for profit.

I know some people who have placed orders as of today for resale. I think you are wasting your money as the tasty pastries will still continue to be made.

eBay sales would say otherwise. I'll take my chances though

Did you actually get paid?

A few 1-day auctions that started yesterday are at like $50/box but people have since put up BINs at a more reasonable $20 or so.

My wife didn't believe me that people were buying them... we happened to be at Target and took a stroll down the snack food aisle, you can tell where the Hostess used to be

My haul from yesterday, none at the supermarkets, targets, or walmarts, all these came from gas stations and 7-11's

I went to 5 7-11's, a few Walgreen's, a Albertsons and only got one cherry and strawberry fruit pie. I want to find the blackberry fruit pies before it's too late.
