Ring-Dings .......... Wonder Bread, the first sliced bread in America............

I agree that some mega-conglomerate will snatch up the brand names, but the product will probably never be the same.
DID YOU KNOW.......... Snapple owns, among other things, Dr. Pepper and Real Lemon.......
And remember how great Mrs. Paul's Products were until they sold out to Campell Foods in 1982, and when Pinnacle Foods aquired the Brand name, the product became......well, Cardboard!

Do any of you old timers remember the TV show in B&W called Red Ryder? Well they were sponsored by Table Talk pies. That brand was bought by Continental Bakery. Hostess folks.

Actually I haven't had a hostess product in 30 years. But I'm afraid my niece will starve to death

With all those preservatives no wonder she looks so young:<)

I know I won't miss Twinkies, dry sponge cake filled with sugar and fat......never were appealing to me. I did enjoy the occasional snowball in my youth. I'm not sure why I liked them except that the cake was moister because it was covered in marshmallow. I really don't care much for marshmallow, but I LOVE coconut! I think it was the coconut ;-) yeah that must have been it; the coconut!

I hadn't had any of these goodies in a couple of years. Last night my Hubby brought a package of zingers home (three little zingers in a package) for he and I and our son. It sure was good. Too bad that they had to close down. Too bad there will probably be lots of businesses who will not be able to stay open. Papa Johns is catching slack for saying that they will need to increase prices and cut employees to part time. They have to do those things or they will also need to close down.

I was confused when I read this because I knew Zingers were a Dolley Madison product, so I looked it up. I had no idea that Hostess bought Dolley Madison out years ago!

Trust me papa john's is far from closing, they are making a lot of profit! The CEO is having no trouble maintaining his 40,000 sq ft. Mansion and 7 million dollar guest house!

I won't miss any of their products at all, but all those people out of work sure will miss their paychecks because their labor dispute closed the doors. Very very sad.
