PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Hostess declares bankruptcy and fin..."
So as it turns out, the company had an expiration date.

The stories I've seen made this out to be a combination of recessionary impact (snack cakes are not a high-priority item on a food budget: they supposedly lost over three hundred million last year) and at least two affiliated unions striking on them. Delivery was willing to take a pay cut, baking wasn't -- and so Hostess surrendered. They claim not to be making any money and they'd rather not lose it faster than they currently are: last one out, run your fingers along the inside of the wrapper to get the final bits. They'll keep their outlets stores open for a few days until the shelves are empty, but as of now, they consider themselves finished.

Stock up while you still can. It's not as if you have to worry about the stuff going bad.

The brands should survive: companies who don't have to rely on just those products might be happy to add those names to their portfolio. But expect a gap of a few months or more.
