Sad news for many people around the world, Hostess Brands has asked the courts to allow them to go out of business and sell it’s brands, which includes Hostess Fruit Pies, Ding Dongs, and the beloved Twinkies.
How far has this country fallen when there aren’t enough sales of the saturated fat laced treats to keep a company in business? Remember the good ol’ days when Twinkies were so popular you couldn’t tell the difference between an ad and a scene from your favorite comic book?
There is some good news in all the sadness.
Even if Hostess does end up in liquidation, analysts say that some of its most iconic brand names — Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, to name a few — will likely live on, getting scooped up at auction and attached to products from other companies.
Figured as much. ROCK ON SHELF SNACKS! ROCK ON!
