    Hostess hasn't been doing very good the last few years..This is like their third bankruptcy in 8 years.. I'm sure Twinkies won't be gone long though.. I can see someone like Bimbo buying them up..they already own Sara Lee and Entenmann's and such..

    Grupo Bimbo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Or I could see Walmart buying the brand names (like Wonder Bread) for use on store brand stuff like they've done in the past..

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see..

    I loved ding dongs as a kid. It is hard to believe they will be no more. even though people on a whole have been eating healthy we do indulge in treats. Wonderbread is one of the most popular breads there are. They will be missed by our generation. my kids grew up on Little Debbies. they weren't as dry like twinkies

    I searched 7 convenience stores yesterday before I was able to find any Hotess products left on the shelf. I bought up the last four packages of Ding Dongs and one package of SnoBalls they had. I have t eaten those things in decades, but they bring back a flood of happy childhood memories for me.

    Oh... And they were absolutely delicious!!

    Time to buy up Twinkies. Wait 10 years and then list them on eBay.

    Time to invest in Twinkie futures. Now if I could just figure out how to get them to look like they have an image of Elvis on them...

    My favorites have always been Tastykake's Butterscotch Krimpets and Drake's Devil Dogs.

    Never cared for Hostess Twinkies.
