I used to like them when they were still just re-packaged leftovers from WW1 field rations.

These are still a guilty pleasure (I use the term loosely):

Ah, didn't take long for the predictable Union bashing to begin. Did you also know that the CEO took a 300pc pay increase this year? 300 percent. But you're right, it's obviously the workers who are greedy.

Edit: nine other top executives also took massive pay increases.

Could this be the end of deep-fried Twinkies at county fairs across the US?

The death if the Twinkie could mean the death of the obese American. Nah, they'll just eat some other garbage....

In my opinion Twinkies suck. The epitome of "industrial food", yuck. Didn't even like them when I was a little kid.

Just curious as to how when the company is successful, it's due to the management team and they all deserve astronomical bonuses, but when they fail ( even when by design, as in this case ), it's somehow labor's fault.

I think diabetes, heart attack, and cancer will be the death of the obese American. :-)

I can guarantee that in a hundred years from now someone will come across a box of twinkies and they will be edible... they a shelf life of just under infinity....

They made the decision to fold rather than capitulate or knuckle under to union demands. Now the the union can have even more meetings with all their free time.
