For those of you who despise the twinkie just know it isn't going anywhere.....
^ I could tongue fuck you for this.
I'd forgotten about Saputo.
Not for the twinkies but for:
If y'all are lucky...maybe Saputo will pick up the rest of the pieces as well.
I honestly do not consider that lucky tbh... I mean let folks have their "barely qualifies as food" sweets.... I prefer to stuff myself on natural things like meat.... or veggies....
Try Kale Chips or Sweet potato chips with cinnamon and honey... honey
Of course we eat mostly only vegetable chips or 'healthy' snacks....but let me have this one.
Hickory Sticks are my one (besides Cheetos) salty snax guilty pleasure....if i am on my way to having a migraine, I end up craving these madly and who knows why.
I have about 6 bags per year so I'm probably not their best customer.....but ....I....need....these......
Twinkies come from CANADA!!
I KNEW IT!!!!!
ATTACK OF THE LIBERAL ELITE
Told you. Don't blame the union. This was the plan all along:
There's money to be had in selling off this dying company and management doesn't give a damn about saving the workers.The update on the sale of the company's brands comes as Hostess seeks approval in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York in White Plains, N.Y. to give its top executives bonuses totaling up to $1.8 million as part of its wind-down plans. The company says the incentive pay is needed to retain the 19 corporate officers and "high-level managers" during the liquidation process, which could take about a year.
Two of those executives would be eligible for additional rewards depending on how efficiently they carry out the liquidation. The bonuses would be in addition to their regular pay. A spokesman for Hostess noted executives will need to meet certain goals to get the bonuses.

Considering that they already ran the company into the ground, destroyed yet another "manufacturing job" here in America, and as a result amounted to laying off thousands of Americans, and making unavailable to the American public dozens of brands; Hostess Donuts, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Zingers, ad you favorite snack case to the list that was purchased at thousands of outlets, grocers, convenience stores, and mega-marts, that thousands of American Workers baked, packages, sold, and delivered EVERYDAY, that NOW executives will need to meet certain goals to get the bonuses.Two of those executives would be eligible for additional rewards depending on how efficiently they carry out the liquidation. The bonuses would be in addition to their regular pay. A spokesman for Hostess noted executives will need to meet certain goals to get the bonuses.
Less than 60 or 70 years ago they'd be ran out of town on a rail, WITHOUT being and tared and feathered if they were lucky.
At the very least hanging their heads in shame.
But know they want to slink away blaming the "unions" and the "workers" for their miserable plight.
I'm glad to see how eager many of my fellow Americans are at "lowering the bar" for our "race to the bottom."
Never regret anything, because in that moment it's exactly what you wanted.
^Whaaaattt?!!! Are you guys trying to tell me that the right's "unions bad" story... is actually not as simplistic as they were hoping... that right-wing media celebrated hubbub is an incomplete telling of the story? I'm starting to feel bad for them... I mean... sheer probability would lead one to think they would get one of these right...
Here's John Stewart's take on the evolving Hostess story touching upon some of the points made:
Much as I hate to interrupt this Hostess-based circle jerk, I smell a rat.
For better or worse, goodness knows there's no lack of demand for Twinkies and Wonder Bread and all other assorted snack treats that have had all the fiber ripped away from them, leaving the soon to be swollen ass-ed consumer with their never ending supply of HFCS-laden treats.
I sincerely doubt that "Hostess, Inc." went under because of lack of sales. But rather, all the subterfuge is to hide the fact the the majority of their company has been shipped overseas.
Given all the unspeakable atrocities that occur in our world on a daily basis, the fact that our Tampa Bay based news opens with the horror of Twinkies are only being available for a limited time, then cuts to a video of the, um, blissfully uninformed lined up in front of their local bakery speaks volumes.
Local news has become a joke.
The latest is just a cream-filled example to drive the point home.
I never really liked the regular Twinkie. I love the banana cream filled ones and the ones with strawberry jelly inside, but I can never find them.
