Ding Dongs

November 16, 2012

Apparently Hostess is liquidating its business.

Hostess Brands, the bankrupt maker of cream-filled pastries like Twinkies and Ho Hos, said on Friday that it planned to wind down its operations. The decision comes a week after one of the company’s biggest unions went on strike to protest a labor contract.

Friday’s decision spells the end of Hostess, an 82-year-old company that has endured wars, countless diet fads and even an earlier Chapter 11 filing. But the liquidation may not mean the end of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread. Such sweet treats could find new life under a different owner, once the company begins an auction of its brands and assets.

Absolutely fucking ridiculous (although, note to the New York Times editors: I believe Twinkies are filled with “creme,” not “cream”).

You’d better get going and start hoarding all the damn Twinkies you can find. Get thee to a WaWa.

Or start praying at TwinkieHenge:

Of course, we still have Drake’s.

    That seems like a lot of crocodiles.

      Chocodiles, not crocodiles, my dear.

      I’m just thanking my lucky stars we grabbed that box of Devil Dogs over the weekend, because I was far too optimistic about Drake’s. Those fuckers at Hostess own them.
