not missing hostess here--not any, not a bit. wouldn't even need all my fingers and toes to count the number of hostess cakes i've eaten in my life.
what remains a mystery to me is hostess's enormous popularity, and its longevity--why it has taken 80 years to shut it down....

paradoxically, saturday when i had to buy a replacement pc, the name i gave her was "twinkie"--go figure.... :) .

Well on this morning's news, a gentleman from Mexico is going to be buying the Twinkies brand. The sugar is cheaper in Mexico and cheaper to make. So Twinkie lovers, all is not lost. It didn't mention any of the other brand names Continental Baking Company owns.

Could it be Bimbo? That's a funny brand name!

I got a kick out of the name the first time we went to Mexico and saw it in the grocery store and on the sides of their delivery trucks! Still makes me laugh.

It would make sense if they bought up Twinkies, it's a big company.

When I saw that I had to LOL at all the people who spent waaaaayyyyyy too much money scarfing up all the Hostess things they could find ... EBay has been insane ! Those people were paying hundreds for stuff. And those who spent all their money buying up Twinkies to sell them as if they were gold could just be a little out of luck !!
