Strike Threat at Hostess could kill off Twinkies

"All Hostess Brands operations would shut down and liquidation would begin."

I'm not worried.

Homemade twinkies taste a whole lot better than store-bought. wink

How do you relate Bakery and Confection with Tabacco? Honest question here. Just curious...

And I knew this but I never found any evidence to support it, "...Wonder Bread is 90 years old ..."

Guess I should have read more... but here is my answer:

"The Bakery and Confectionery Workers International Union of America, one of the pioneers of the North American labor movement, was organized in 1886. In 1957, the American Bakery and Confectionery Workers’ International Union was formed. In 1969, the two organizations united.

The Tobacco Workers International Union was founded in 1895 and was also in the forefront of the labor movement. As it and the Bakery and Confectionery Workers’ International Union of America shared many common goals, both organizations came to realize that those goals could best be achieved through a merger. That merger, creating the BC&T, took place in 1978."

While Hostess itself would go belly-up, it's hard to believe another baker would not buy
the rights to the product line, and continue making them.
Thar's gold in them thar Twinkies! (In addition to the delicious creme filling winking smiley )
