Twinkies (demise) Reborn!
 
Twinkie maker Hostess asks to liquidate

How sad. :sad:

PrincessFiona60 11-16-2012 09:47 AM

Hmmm...Shrek better enjoy the last of his Ding Dongs...

mmyap 11-16-2012 03:13 PM

It is sad. I will miss Snowballs. And those little hockey puck's of delight, the Ding-Dong.

DebLynn 11-16-2012 03:48 PM

This can't happen. I'm in denial.

Katie H 11-16-2012 04:11 PM

I rarely, if ever, eat any of their products, but occasionally a pink snowball really, really hits the spot.

Now the comedians won't have anything to slam when it comes to shelf life of food. No more Twinkies to trash!:rofl::rofl:

Siegal 11-16-2012 04:14 PM

I never actually had a pink snowball...always wanted one just never got around to budgeting for eating it

Will have to hurry

And lawyers will no longer be able to use the twinkie defense. They will have to come up with new tactics. A hummus induced homicidal fit? Nah. Won't work. :rofl:

I haven't had a Twinky in probably 40 years. It's not really on my list of preferred foods, but I may have to have one again just for nostalgia's sake before they're gone forever.

jabbur 11-16-2012 04:28 PM

There's talk that another company is looking to buy them out but no mention of which company that is. The TV news has reported brisk sales of Hostess products since the announcement.

I have never had a twinkie, we dont have them over here

MrsLMB 11-16-2012 04:46 PM

I never cared for Twinkies but I still love Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's :yum:

Hubby enjoys the snowballs but only when they are green at St Patrick's Day LOL plus he thinks their fruit pies are the best.

Guess I better hit the store and get some of those into the freezer before they are all gone.

Sir_Loin_of_Beef 11-16-2012 04:53 PM

You don't need to put twinkies in the freezer. Twinkies don't have an expiration date, they have a half-life.

mmyap 11-16-2012 05:53 PM

I understand hoarding and price gauging are already in effect. Unbelievable.

Siegal 11-16-2012 07:22 PM

I was just at supermarket and saw woman with like 6 large boxes of twinkies.... She was sad to see them go.
I think they'll be bought out

Janet H 11-16-2012 07:34 PM

I adore HoHo's. This is so sad....

mmyap 11-16-2012 07:39 PM

My store was almost out. I got the last box of Ho-Ho's and I got two Snowball, two Twinkie and two Ding Dong small packages. I didn't buy everything off the shelves, I left some for others but there was not much left. I hope they bring out more from the back. I was hoping to score a fruit pie or two. =o(

I haven't had a Twinkie in over 30 years since that one guy had one too many Twinkie and went on a shooting rampage in San Francisco.

And he got off because of the "Twinkie Defense."

Kylie1969 11-16-2012 08:04 PM

What do twinkies taste like guys?

They are a yellow sponge cake with no real taste and an artificial cream filling. Again no taste. Have no idea why they are so popular. Maybe because they are indestructible. They never go stale or become hard. :angel:
