But alas, ’tis the final season of those yellow sponges filled with a taste of Heaven.
Cry, stomp, bawl and threaten all you want. It won’t stop Hostess—the maker of Twinkies—from closing its doors, according to an Associated Press article published in the Arizona Republic today:
“The maker of the iconic snack Twinkies said Friday it is going out of business and laying off all of its 18,500 workers after a national strike crippled its operations.
The company, founded in 1930, was fighting battles beyond labor costs. Competition is increasing in the snack space, and Americans are increasingly conscious about healthy eating.”
F- that! Could you imagine a world without Twinkies?
- Or Ding Dongs
- Or Snowballs
- Or Suzie Qs (that is Hostess, right?)
This situation reminds me strangely of the movie, “Zombieland,” where Twinkies have vanished off the face of the earth. Perhaps we ARE approaching the Zombie Apocalypse after all.
So if I were you, I’d stock up. Because the next time you get a Twinkie craving, you might suffer through the realms of infinity … and beyond.
