    I'd really like to get someone else's take on this other than Hostess Management.

    Who the hell else are they gonna blame for going belly up? Certainly not themselves..

    I found one article on Politico which had some quotes from the leader of the AFL-CIO.

    https://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83979.html

    LOL - look at the picture of the guy that they deemed appropriate to a accompany the article. He looks like Yosemite Sam on Meth. Thank God the liberal media is on the case.

    He also looks like he downed a few Twinkies in his day. Something tells me we're not getting the whole story yet.

    When all else fails, blame a union.

    Hostess should have adjusted to the market. Twinkies and cupcakes just aren't as popular as they once were. Just look at Krispy Kreme. When I was in HS, everyone ate'em. But now that craze is over. Today? I don't know of anyone who eats Krispy Kreme.
    LOL - I actually think it's the opposite. This country is completely saturated with fat ****s and the market is completely saturated with fat **** foods. Just take a walk down the junk food aisle in your local supermarket. Hostess could no longer handle or evolve with the competition. They've been making the same crap for 90 years.

    I wouldn't worry though - "Hostess" isn't going anywhere. This name brand recognition is way too high. Someone will buy it up.

    I think the Hostess Outlet Store actually put them out of business. I honestly can't ever remember seeing a Twinkie box without a big black marker check mark on the outside or just some messed up looking Hostess Fruit Pies in everyone's cupboards. That place might as well have been Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory to the kids in my neighborhood growing up.

    So does anybody actually like their products? I ate 'em aplenty as a kid, but I don't think I ever really liked the taste, just the fun of my little eating games. With Snoballs and Cupcakes, I liked to peel the icing/topping off and save it for last. If I felt like a real challenge, I would first try to peel the white icing squiggle intact off the top of the cupcake. With Twinkies, I would either try to suck out all the creme filling before eating the cake portion, or try to eat all the cake and leave the creme for last.

    So did/does anyone have any favorite eating methods?

    And make it profitable by not paying their workers what hostess was paying theirs.

    Starting with the CEO, who had his salary tripled yet asked the union workers to take massive cuts.

    Does anyone appreciate the irony that just as Hostess is going out of business, pot is becoming legal in more and more states?
