    Twinkies Are Dead!!!!

    Like This Thread!
    Screw the Star Wars DVD changes, there is a far greater crisis that will send this world into turmoil!

    Due to the Atkins Diet craze, Hostess hasn't made any revenue on their snack cakes, therefore they are taking the ax to a few of the brands...Twinkies are among the ones that are going to be discontinued

    Umm, filing Chapter 11 is not the same thing as going out of business. Twinkies are not going anywhere.

    The company said it expects day-to-day operations to continue as usual during the reorganization and has sought authority from bankruptcy court to pay employees and honor benefits without interruption or delay.

    Sorry, I didn't see the CNN thing, I just saw this article earlier today. I suppose it's possible that they're going to discontinue the twinkie, but since it's easily their most recognized and almost certainly their best selling brand, it would not make much sense to get rid of it over some of their less popular lines...

    just sayin'

    It's not right, it's not right!!!

    Poor twinkies the victims of a diet crazed culture. Though you have to wonder why they don't try to make "low carb" twinkies.

    Well, that sucks. What do they expect me to eat now, those cupcakes?

    ... actually, that doesn't sound so bad after all (goes off to find some Hostess cupcakes)

    That would be weird if the twinkie was to go. It's been around so long, hard to believe that there's even a chance for it to leave.
