PostSubject: Hostess   Fri Nov 16, 2012 10:13 am

I just found out that Hostess is going out of business. Wow, for so many of us this was a big part of our childhood. My mom thought nothing of packing a package of Twinkies or Ding Dongs in my lunch from time to time. Honestly, I don't think my own boys ever had a single one. scratchead Let's face it, the stuff is poison. Whistle


Sorry for the loss of jobs though....I guess if they hadn't reached a deal with the strikers by 5:00pm yesterday, it was all over. Blue

We have a Hostess bakery here in town, it's nice because if you go downtown on bread day it just smells so good. The workers here in Waterloo did not strike, I feel so bad for all the people losing their jobs. No I'll miss going to the bakery outlet & getting those chocolate pudding filled pies.

I have to admit, I haven't bought a Hostess product in years, but it's sad to know the company is closing. Like so many things from my childhood, they will be gone.

I heard that on the radio this morning. I haven't had any in years either. I didn't get them that often in my lunch because they were more expensive, but I usually got a Hostess fruit pie when we needed a sack lunch for a field trip.

Especially nowadays. They really went up in price and Little Debbie snacks were much more affordable for that kind of 'food'.

Here's an article about people figuring out how to make their own Hostess treats. greenS

Oh, and I'd forgotten that President Clinton had put a Twinkie in the millenium time capsule!! Laughing
