I remember fondly reading the ads from old marvel comics.

Wonder how it feels like to be in that union right now. Happy that you stuck it to the man.. Or sad that you lost out too? I bet there is a lot of infighting within the union now too.

I haven't had a Hostess product in forever, however hopefully a company is able to buy the Zinger brand because I've always loved Vanilla Zingers and Hostess Cupcakes. Twinkies are nothing to write home about at all, not that good to me.

I think the Canadian branch of Hostess is staying open. We may have our Twinkies yet!

I see Hostess vendors just about every day and they're all pretty bummed because they feel certain they're out of a job and have already started making in-roads with other bread and baked snack distributors that we work with, mostly with Bimbo and Pepperidge Farms. Both of our guys delivered their final orders today and I guess as of 5pm, the bakeries and distributors are in total shutdown. They are completely f*cked, in their own words. One of the guys I work with is brand-f*cking new...having replaced a guy who retired from Hostess not even a month ago. Pretty shitty that he's losing his job already.

Saw a piece on the news an hour ago and protesters in front of a closed Hotess plant in LA said they think it's still a ploy by management.

The reporter pointed out that the teamsters union which has seen the books is saying vote and get back to work or lose your job and the guy said his union leader told them that was a lie spread by Hostess management. She showed him a clip of a teamster union rep in an interview from last night and when the camera went back he was beet red, I thought the guy was going to stroke out there on live tV.

You feel for these people if their union bosses are leading them down the wrong path

Its no ploy. The contract the workers were voting on really does suck, but the union isn't conceding a single thing or approaching any kind of good faith negotiation. The bakeries are shut down as of 5pm today. The guys who work my route will have no products to deliver as of Monday morning when I would see them next and both of them were under orders to empty their trucks by the end of the day. Management still need permission from a Bankruptcy court judge to sell off the brands and assets and if that goes through, that's pretty much the end of the line. 18,000+ people out of work.

And Wonder Bread is licensed to use in Canada by Weston Bakeries, which has no relationship with Hostess. So, not only Twinkies will still be sold in Canada but also Wonder Bread!
