The great Twinkies outage of 2012

You’ve probably heard by now that Hostess Brands, makers of Twinkies, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs, and Wonder Bread is filing for liquidation. This has prompted a run of the company’s remaining stock, especially Twinkies. Here’s the thing though: the Twinkies brand (and some of the other stuff the company made) still has value. Somebody will almost certainly buy the rights and resume production, sans Hostess’ management issues and unionized labor force. Sorry about that Twinkies hoarders.

    True, but they won’t be the same. The new owners will MEDDLE and change the recipe — they always do.
