You can still get them in Canada: the licence is owned separately up here and production will continue - as will the production of Ding Dongs and Wonderbread.

Good thing they have a shelf life of 30 years, stock up while you can!

Don't worry. The Twinkie brand is being sold off and will be produced by someone else. Twinkies will never die! We just will have a severe Twinkie shortage until the deal gets done and the new owner can ramp up production. We just went from a 1.37 million Twinkie a day production rate to 0 overnight. Expect an extreme spike in Twinkie prices and short availability almost immediately. I hate to advocate hoarding, but if you stock up now they may last through the production stoppage. It may be 6 months to a year before we get fresh Twinkies again

It's no coincidence that Twinkies look like gold bars.

I can see it now; smuggling Twinkies in from Canada. I wonder if they'll have Twinkie sniffing dogs on the border?

that's why Canada is building the new bridge to Detroit, because of all the Twinckie trade we're expecting.

BTW jstarktt what tune do you have in your RS?
