Twinkies are as much an American icon as Coca Cola.
That being said, it's a sad day for all of us in America....I am sincerely hoping they will be bought out and remanufactured some place else. This company has been in trouble for a long time, and this isn't the first time they have filed for bankruptcy. I just hope someone comes along and picks up the reins and brings back America's favorite snack cakes!!!

This business has been in trouble due to the declining popularity of these kind of sugary, fatty, processed foods. Now that I think about it, I don't recall seeing these products at the grocery store--sure they must be there but looks like shrinking shelf space?

I'm sure someone will buy the Twinkie brand and revive it.....RIP Twinkies !peace,sugarcookie1

You should sell them on ebay. You'll make a fortune.



I swear some people are so gullible

I may be gullible, but not gullible enough to buy a cupcake for $100.


Twinkies Apocalypse or no Twinkies Apocalypse.

I bought up a bunch when the Hostess news hit. I figured they may be worth money down the road as a collector's item. Turns out down the road was less than a week later. Already made over a grand on them and still have loads left. Booyah

I can't see how you can live with yourself by price jacking poor folks..

It's a real shame people are out there just to take advantage of other people.

It's not taking advantage of someone to sell them a snack cake at a highly inflated price. They don't need the cupcake, it's not like price gouging rice and other staples like they did for y2k; those people were being taken advantage of because they believed that S*** hitting the fan was imminent and they were attempting to provide food for their families. It's also not like Gasoline price gouging because gasoline, after a disaster or a supply interruption, is a necessity for most people.

If people want to pay such exorbitant prices that is their own prerogative. Isn't it just a simple case of supply and demand. I mean rare food items sell for bat s*** crazy prices all the time. Look at Beluga caviar or Birds nest soup or Tuna in Japan. If people really like something and they have disposable income they're getting it.

I think it's retarded; for instance a food item I would pay a lot of money for would be pepperoni, but if for some reason everyone who makes it stopped selling it forever, I would make that # at home. Unlike the items i mentioned above that are very expensive; Twinkies are sponge cake with vanilla flavored "cream" on the inside. I say "cream" 'cause that stuff is Crisco and sugar and not much else (probably some of that mexican artificial vanilla made from trees). All of these ingredients are very easily obtainable.

Who knows people are stupid, and apparently very hungry for Twinkies.

the price will come down again as twinkie feaver fades, it's just like when Michael Jackson died all his memorabilia sky rocketed on ebay, a MJ Sega Master System game I paid £4 for I sold it on ebay for £80 a couple days after MJ passed, now the price is down to around £10

twinkies are the most disgusting crap ever produced.

the white cream is a concoction of chemicals banned by the u.n. and infused with criminal amounts of corn syrup.

the actual twinkie is a gastronomical mystery. the factory workers would need a p.h.d and a masters degree in bio-engineering to understand the ingredients.

that's another thing. it isn't actually baked by a human. it's all robotically assembled and mixed in a warehouse because touching the ingredients used to make a twinkie has to be a work hazard safety violation.

the two bravest kinds of human beings on earth are astronauts and a twinkie employee.

But my imminently worried self wonders if this Twinkie Apocalypse is an omen of things to come. Yes Hostess has been in trouble. Wal-Mart already sells a generic version. My family rarely bought Hostess because it was generally pricier than other snacks. But Hostess has been around a long time. Another American company failed.

Nationalization of our food producers underway?
www.examiner.com...
www.politico.com...

After all big brother wants to tell us what and when and how much to eat, is this a sign they may someday control the supply of store bought foods?
What if Campell's soup fails and big gov bails em out? Then Swanson TV dinners? so on and so on. After all it has been noted that the TPTB pick the winners and losers.

And dam it all.....I really loved those blueberry dessert cakes.
