JesusIsNowBlind: Misch: Loadmaster: Damn labor unions.

Damn private equity firms buying companies, saddling them with debt to pay extraordinary dividends to the private equity firms, then trying to cut employees pay to make the loan payments on that debt.

Twinkie got bained

stratagos: *sigh*

Why do I bother working for a living when I have such evidence of the continued imbecility of the American public? I could just scam the morons for a living - better hours, higher compensation, and I keep their money in circulation

felching pen: What are the odds the "capital (debt) management" groups that own Hostess today will still own Hostess next month, only under different names. The auction and foreclosure services will be contracted to companies they own which will sell the old Hostess at pennies on the dollar to the "new" Hostess, which of course will not have to deal with past binding labor agreements. All the trained and capable people now at Hostess will, in the meantime, be hired off by other bakeries needing help taking up the slack in the market. The "new Hostess" will be importing your All-American snack foods from Mexico or overseas, the new/old owners will be laughing all the way to their offshore tax-haven banks. And, first against the wall Day One of the Revolution - you don't mess with our Twinkies!

I'm going to go home and record a video to post on YouTube of me stuffing four twinkies down at once and put it up as "The last Twinkies on Earth die."

I will expect messages wanting me to sample other varieties of cream filling... Sorry fellas, I'm straight.

Cream filled coffee cakes.

Seriously, most people haven't given a damn about Twinkies in the last 20 years, and suddenly their demise is the greatest rejedy since 9/11.

If everybody loved Twinkies so much, they wouldn't be declaring bankruptcy for the second time.

I did go try to find a Twinkie just because, but they were gone. Didn't feel like braving the madhouse that was the Hostess/Wonder outlet store. I did get a lone box of original cupcakes and zingers. Someone has to pick it up at auction, they're too iconic.

Darth_Lukecash: GreenSun: How can such a company of a very popular food item go bankrupt? Just what the hell happened with all of their money? Twinkies are everywhere yet they're going bankrupt? This is weird!

Look to owners and management.

In this case hedge funds and investment firms. Basically sucking a company dry then selling off the bones

And to the bakers union. If the Teamsters settle, then you should probably settle.


This is the part I don't get about the baker's union - the Teamsters thought they were being unreasonable! There was no sympathy strike, words of encouragement or even silence on the sidelines, just "uh dudes, we checked their books - they really don't have any money. You might want to back down on this."

Theonceovertwice: When you have Magnolia Bakery and The Frosted Cupcakery, why do you need Hostess anyway? Just sayin'.


I hadn't heard of either of those, so I Googled -- they both appear to be single-location stores, whereas Hostess is a national brand. If the generic "you" happened to live near either of the stores in question, then your point is probably valid, but for 99% of the country, those other two options aren't really options.
 
2012-11-16 06:56:28 PM  
I figure it's been about 8 years since I ate a twinkie, and the one before that probably 5 years earlier. What can I say? I have a savory/salty tooth not a sweet one. It's hard to believe that Hostess went broke though (but then again Little Debbie seems to have a knock off of all of Hostess's products for a lot less money).

I did eat the hell out of some Hostess Ho-Hos when I was a kid.

Wolves, Geese, and Twinkies mate for life.

In fairness, they aren't curing diseases over there and sales were down because people aren't as excited about eating junk as they used to be. Apparently, even the Teamsters were urging the union to slow down and think this through.
