One of many peoples favourite snacks maker Hostess is planning on going out of business. With having around 18,500 workers it announced friday, that is it going to shut its doors and fire most of its workers.
While in Canada, a totally different company owns the right to wonder bread and Hostess, but twinkies is not one of them. “Everything is business as usual in Canada.” according to Geoff Wilson, senior vice-president at George Weston. I think even though the company is closing in the USA, the Canadian hostess brand wont be affected. Their could even go potentially go up with americans crossing the border to buy Hostess products. But twinkies one of their main products cannot be produced by Hostess canada.
Twinkie enthusiasts are spending $50 just to buy a box of twinkies on ebay. I checked earlier today and their was 28 bids on a box of twinkies for 48 dollars. For me getting in 10 more twinkies for $50 is not worth it, but for some snatching that last twinkle may just bring back their childhood memories.
