Your Twinkies may have reached the end of their shelf life11/15/2012
If Hostess workers are made of something other than cream filling, that Twinkie you're pigging out on right now could be your last. The embattled snack food company, which saw employees strike on Nov. 9 after a contract proposal called for an 8 percent pay decrease and benefit cuts, says it will file bankruptcy papers and begin liquidation if union workers don't return to work by 5 p.m. Thursday. That puts 18,000 jobs at risk, to say nothing of the lunchbox dessert options of American schoolchildren, the guilty eating pleasure of millions of adults and a surefire defense for criminal behavior.

Update: The 5 p.m. deadline passed without an end to the strike or an announcement from Hostess Brands. ABC News said word may come Friday morning.
