Hostess, a company that makes yummy sugary snacking goodness is going out of business today. A strike by workers all across the US brought the confectionery king of the snack world to its knees. Hostess warned its employees that it would be filing for bankruptcy and sell off its brands if the plants didn’t reopen. Well, the strikers seemed to be in some kind of sugar deprived fugue state and allowed the deadline to pass… so now no more Twinkies.
Once again, the US loses jobs... some 18,000 or so. On the positive side of the job loss, the fat index for people should drop a bit. P we can get workers at all the fast-food places to go on strike too. Possibly, today’s youth would be able to see their feet again. I digress though… I want my Twinkies. Several years ago hostess made Chocodiles… basically a Twinkie dipped in chocolate. From time to time, I would order some as a special treat. I had to order them because they were only made on the West Coast of the United States. Where the hell am I going to order them henceforth?
Now we get no more Twinkies, Ho Hos, Zingers, Snow Balls, Yodels. What’s worse this makes Drakes Cakes and Dolly Madison defunct too. If you thought your favorite snack company was safe… it isn’t, Hostess owned them too. Hell You won’t even be able to get any Wonder Bread. It is a sad day for snack cakes. I mean what will we do without things like this.
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
