    Some food company out there will pick up some of these brands at a steep discount and make them in their factories.

    I took for granted that they'd always be there if I got a hankering.

  • You chose an article from yesterday that obviously cannot even know about today's announcement? And out of all of yesterday's sources, you chose one as trusted and well-known as KFAB News Radio?

    It would be hilarious if bankruptcy court awards Twinkies Ding-dongs and other assets to the union in order to pay off the company's debt.

    Even the teamsters, who after accepting a pay cut after seeing the books, told the baker's union that Hostess wasn't bluffing.

    Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area.

    Oh believe me, they've already been screaming "unions!" as the management drove it into the ground, even though the unions made concessions just last year to keep the company afloat. The employees were hosed over, plain and simple ,but bad management and worse owners.

    I'm sure Hostess won't care who buys the assets, if the union wants to buy the assets i'm sure they can. However, if you buy the assets, and pay the people the price they are demanding, then you'd end up in the same boat.
     
  • Fear not! Twinkies are made by other companies up here in Canuckistan.
    We made be able to fix you up, man.

    No.. they are closing down at this point.
     
  • it amazes me that a company like hostess, which is very popular and sells its products across the country, could possibly be so financially insecure that a strike like this could literally destroy the company. you'd think they must have been making huge profits, and while a strike certainly couldn't help them, it is something they could have weathered. were they really running on such narrow profit margins, that one work stoppage could ruin them? and if the unions were strangling the company, couldn't they have just raised their prices or something to offset their workers' high wages? i'm not a business major, but this whole situation bewilders me.

    personally, i like little debbie products way more than hostess, so i guess in the long run, i don't really care.
