According to ABC.com:
“Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of the iconic snack Twinkies, announced today that it will liquidate the entire company because not enough striking employees returned to work by a Thursday evening deadline set by the company.”
Not only are we going to lose Twinkies, but also … Baker’s Inn, Beefsteak, Blue Ribbon, Bread du Jour, Butternut Breads, Colombo, Cotton’s, Di Carlo, Drake’s (a real killer there), Dolly Madison, Dutch Hearth, Eddy’s, Good Hearth, Holsom, Home Pride, J.J. Nissen, Merita, Millbrook, Mrs. Cubbison’s, Nature’s Pride, Parisian, Standish Farms, Sweetheart, Toscana, and Wonder Bread.
RIP Hostess. Personally, I will miss Eddy’s the most.
No word yet what will become of Twinkie the Kid.
