Twinkhards, chill: Twinkies will probably still be on shelves11/18/2012
Since the announcement that Hostess is dunzo, Twinkies have been making a killing on eBay and Amazon as fans of the brand start hoarding the preservative-laden baked goods for perpetuity. Hey, Twinkie addicts, maybe restrain yourselves from throwing down a few thousand dollars for oblong cupcakes, because it’s very likely another brand will buy the rights to continue manufacturing Twinkies – in fact, many brands are expected to vie for the golden goose cupcake that makes an estimated $125 million a year. Possible contenders include Bimbo Bakeries, Flower Foods and that tiny temptress Little Debbie (McKee Foods). Hostess is expected to sell the big brand names fast, before customers switch to competitors or, heaven forbid, find healthier snacks. [Source]
