I think we can rest assured that someone will buy up the assets and keep making Twinkies.

So think of them as undead Twinkies.

I think it's a mutual defeat. I don't think they are coming back from this one.

From what I've read, the company that now owns PBR is considering purchasing the company. Twinkie the Kid now to be rebranded as a Hipster.

Tastykakes are still around. And in the Big Y right up the road from me. Hellloooo Butterscotch Krimpets!! :mrgreen:

And isnt it odd that the Neil Armstrong passing away thread got two replies, but the twinkie death thread gets 17+?

Does everyone think the moon landing was faked or something?

I would note that there is a butter flavoring added to Twinkies that might play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.
so no, I am not sad to see them go.
plus, they taste like ass.

if you want a snack cake, Tastykake is the brand to eat!
