After Hostess had to declare bankruptcy, Twinkies and other Hostess cakes were removed from stores, prompting a much larger internet outcry than most of the other real news going on at the time. Fortunately, Hostess is back and Twinkies are back… or they will be as of July 15th, sporting the slogan “The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever”.
Hostess Foods announced today that after being unable to come to an agreement in their ongoing labor dispute, they’re going to have to start liquidating everything. Does mean the end of Twinkies?
Just as marijuana legalization is gaining ground in the US, it looks like there’s bad news on the horizon for Hostess, the makers of such awesome munchie foods as Twinkies and Ho-Hos. Oh god, Ho-Hos. A major labor dispute between executives and labor has been putting a major strain on Hostess, who is already suffering from financial problems.
