Don't call it a "comeback," they've been here for years.

They haven't made Twinkies in 20 years. The whole kerfluffle right now is because they ran low on stockpiles.

jehovahs witness protection: Am I the only one who never really liked Twinkies?


They taste like industrial plastic waste mixed with high fructose corn syrup. I took one bite and threw the rest away.

I am hoping the Bimbo company buys the brands so I can get Bimbo Ho-Hos.

Should be Wal-Mart. A perfect match for Twinkies and that tasteless textureless tissue paper they call Wonder Bread.

sk8r: I'm hiring some of those employees who were let go. Their salaries SUCKED. 25+ years at a job and earning 28K a year?! I've been shocked at some of the salaries I've seen written on aps. Even with the most incredible of benefits packages, that is piss poor for a couple of decades of your life.


Yeah but if they payed their employees more, the execs wouldn't be able to give themselves such generous salaries/bonuses regardless of the fact the company was going under.

And we can't let that happen can we?

Whatever, you know they could afford a fridge. They don't deserve Land of Prosperity money.

LargeCanine: Despite the glee and schadenfreude of some leftwing media types, there is a market for Twinkies and it is likely to be cream filled by someone.

Frederf: If people want them and are willing to part with money. Capitalism fi-fi-fi-finds a way.


If they don't want them, capitalism hires advertising to MAKE THEM.

Well farking duh. But I do hope you all went out on eBay and spent $100 or more on Twinkies.

And yeah, they do suck. Ding Dongs on the other hand, oh ho ho!
