octopied: I found super sized marshmellows at Wallmart.

I put one on a plate in the toaster oven and watch that sucker like a hawk. Swells up to the size of a softball with a flat bottom. Once it gets a bit toasty, I gently press the now softer top and add coconut and toast some more.

Better than snoballs.


That is likely a poor lifestyle choice

LouDobbsAwaaaay: Abox: It's a tough world champ. Blaming the boss isn't going to put a flatscreen on your TV stand.

Why is the flat-screen TV the item that represents undeserved luxury for you corporate dick polishers? They cost a few hundred bucks.

And when the boss hollows out the company, loads it up with $700M in debt, and then skips town to leave the workers to clean up his mess, yeah I'm going to blame the boss. Not the guy trying to feed his family and keep his kids from dying of easily preventable illnesses.

But I'm sure if you just guzzle this guy's jizz for long enough, he'll reward your loyalty. Just keep it up.



He doesn't have to reward my loyalty. I know I'm expendable and prepared to be expended.  I've been in management; if I wanted to go that route I would. But I don't and chose to let others make the big business decisions. My choice, my risk, and maybe I'll get laid off tomorrow.

legion_of_doo: special20: The right-wing attack on unions is nothing more than ignorance, lack of education, and propaganda.
Enjoy your weekend, tard.

The Bakers were the holdouts, and they stopped negotiating with management. They called management's "bluff"... only it wasn't a bluff, and the company has to liquidate. Oops!

Even the Teamsters were critical of the Bakers union & their handling of this shared issue.

This is not a "right wing" issue... but go on derping the derp.

/Fiscal reality has a right wing bias?


Nope, but anti-union, pro-capitalist viewpoints do.

Yeah!!! Non-union made treats. They will taste sweeter. How's that Hope and keep the change working for you? Ammm I rite, or ammm I rite?

Arcanum: special20: MemeSlave: I bought and ate a Hostess cupcake last night. It was disgusting. Beef fat? Titanium? The FIRST ingredient is sugar FFS. This whole thing seems like natural selection. Make a good product and don't make bad business decisions (looking your way, unions), and you stay in business.

Unions? No, how about when Hostess filed for bankruptcy, they immediately gave raises to their executive staff upward to 100%. We're talking wages beyond the total annual salary of dozens of line workers. ...but you can keep parroting that anti-union propaganda if it makes you feel better. I'm just saying you're looking at the wrong antagonist in this story.

That makes sense. Running a company in serious trouble usually requires much better executive compensation. It's riskier to careers and it's much harder work.

And it's a tiny sliver of money compared to what the union members were demanding.

The company was bankrupt and the investors put in a huge amount of money to bring the company back, and they wanted to make a profit. Profit was impossible due to the union demands, so now all the employees have lost their jobs in a bad economy to lose a job (thanks Obama!).

If they weren't happy with their pay they should have quit instead of costing their friends their jobs.


Further more the executives and shareholders, now unencumbered by a union contract can buy the brand and recipes at bankruptcy prices, have the stuff made in Chinese bakeries and sold at Walmart. They'll be welcomed as heroes for rescuing the Twinkies. Captains of Industry, Job Creators. Bootstraps.

The company was doing fine was bought by a firm with the sole intention of selling off the parts to anther venture company owned by the same people without the pension debt. It is nothing more then a way for a few people to get very rich at the cost of 20k jobs

/has anyone started a lynch mob over this yet the venture capital group needs to die painfully


And yet the wack-jobs shoot up movie theaters and summer camps. Can the homicidal sociopaths not find corporate boardrooms when they decide to do the bidding of the voices in their heads? Seriously.

Goddamn those greedy union bastards; how dare they expect that a company that owns all of their working hours pay a wage that allows employees to feed and clothe themselves.

Now they make nothing. Good going unions. Aesops Fables should be required reading before joining a union

The corporate boardrooms have already paid off the voices in their heads.

I've spent most of this weekend explaining to dumbasses that the odds of that many valuable brands just vanishing is pretty damn near zero. They'll get bought up in the Bankruptcy Court proceedings, and dozens of regional bakeries will be making those inorganic treats within weeks or months.

Nothing Hostess Brands ever made is anywhere near unique.

Who the fark still eats Wonder Bread, anyway? I used to use it as fish bait to catch perch.

Are they better than Twinkies? I fully suspect that they are. (It would be hard not to be better than Twinkies.)

I remember buying their various snack cakes all the time back in college. Better than Hostess, and they have more variety from what I remember.

And after the results of this year's election in my college state, sales should go through the roof.

I don't buy them all the time, but now I kinda have a craving. And I am kicking myself, because I could have indulged during my futile Twinkie run today. (Mom likes them. She's probably not getting them for Christmas -- at least not from me -- and will just have to settle for the Sno Balls and Mini Muffins I found at a gas station. Haven't decided whether the Zingers will keep, though...)

Nutty Bars alone are like crack.

/And the Swiss Rolls. Ohh, the Swiss Rolls...
