Everyone, there's a shortage on Twinkies! Better get them before Bloomberg buys them all to keep them away from Yankees! Then again, we can pool our money, buy them all and double the price and have ammo cash!

In this case there isn't a shortage of twinkies, there is a finite number and will be no more until someone buys the brand. Luckily they last forever ;)

Just like Christmas fruitcakes. There were never more than 2000 ever made. They're just re-gifted by sweet little 'ole Grandmas until the end of eternity, thus they'll always be here. No worry!

Hostess isn't bankrupt, the bakers union is one strike, so they can't produce any more. Good job protecting your workers there, union.



My local Walmart was cleaned out of Twinkies tonight.

Actually, Hostess Brands IS in bankruptcy (Chapter 11):

"But one of the grimmer milestones on the Twinkie timeline came in 2004, when the maker of the snack cake filed for bankruptcy protection. It filed a second time in January (2012). And in late October, Hostess listed a net loss of $15.1 million for the four weeks that ended in late September."

This is the second time in ten years.

The bakers' strike has caused them to petition for conversion to Chapter 13: Liquidation.​
