There will be no more twinkies since the makers are going out of business.

Twinkies, CupCakes, Ding Dongs, Ho Ho’s, Sno Balls and Donettes. I pretty much grew up on that stuff. I don't eat any of this anymore though. I wouldn't mind having one last Strawberry Twinkie:

Those things are 10x more delicious than the original.

Those sweets are such a big deal that someone will most likely buy the rights to produce them. We'll still have Twinkees and the like, but they will probably have a different wrapping.

I cannot imagine Hostess wouldn't sell the rights.

I live on the wrong side of the globe and the phenomenon that is a Twinkie has reached even our ears.

I am sincerely sorry for your loss, America ;)

A Twinkie was put in the millenium time capsule by fmr. Pres. Clinton ... Srsly... that happened.

I haven't eaten the stuff for quite a while personally, but it sucks to see such an iconic brand disappear.

Someone will buy it up, though. I'm quite confident in that.

Well, you can still buy them from anywhere between 10 and 10 million dollars a box on eBay. :D

There's also an official petition to nationalize the Twinkie industry. If it get's 25,000 signatures in it's first 20 days The Obama administration will actually review it! Go to the petition at http://wh.gov/X890 to save the Twinkies! Smiling

In all seriousness though, Twinkies are not gone forever. Hostess has already appealed the bankruptcy court to liquidate their assets, which means that they will simply sell their iconic brands to other companies. The only thing that will change is the packaging, and you'll have to wait six months before they are back on every store shelf in America.

it's only a matter of time until the zombies take over now. Just let them fall. The crap that is inside twinkies is disgusting. If you found out what you're really eating you would never want a twinkie again.

True. Its cancer in a plastic wrapper. But it's delicious cancer in a wrapper.

They last forever too; great zombie apoc food as an energy supplement until you get some protein from bugs or non-infected wildlife...

Maybe all the rich people actually jus bought the twinkie business so they have food during the zombie apocalypse :O But you're right there delicious and I'd prefer cancer over being eaten by zombies anyday!

I'd rather Little Debbie buy up Twinkies instead of Obama.

Plus his wife would be against it as well, in the fight vs obesity. If they want people to be healthy they should just do what Japan is doing making being obese illegal, but that wouldn't be right as it goes against America's principles, but y'know just stating some facts here. Unsure

And this.

I wouldn't mind at all if they were to disappear for good, but I highly doubt that would actually happen.
