Twinkies, Ding Dongs Maker Hostess Liquidates Following Failure To Resolve Labor Union Animosity

Hostess Brands, the company better known as the maker of Butternut, Ding Dongs, Dolly Madison, Drake's, Home Pride, Ho Hos, Hostess, Merita, Nature's Pride, and of course Wonder Bread and Twinkies, and which previously survived one multi-year Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, when it operated as Interstate Bakeries, has just made a splash at the NY Southern Bankruptcy court, for the last time, with a liquidation filing. The reason: insurmountable (and unfundable) difference in the firm's collective bargaining agreements and pension obligations, which resulted in a crippling strike that basically shut down the company. In other words, Twinkies may well survive the nuclear apocalypse, but there was one weakest link: the company making them, was unable to survive empowered labor unions who thought they had all the negotiating leverage... until the led their bankrupt employer right off liquidation cliff. Will attention now turn to that another broke government entity, the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corp (PBGC), which will have to step in to resuscitate some 18,000 pension plans which suddenly vaporized after labor unions took their "negotiating" freedom a step too far.



LOL!

Hostess failed because their snack pastries violate every principle of a healthy diet. No one dares eat a Twinkie. Take a walk through the processed food aisles of the grocery store--even the junk food proclaims "no trans fats" "additive free" "no added preservatives" "made with real sugar".

I know you are sad. I used to have a HoHo with a glass of milk every day after school. It was just the right combination of textures--that thin waxy chocolate coating, dry coarse sponge cake, and grainy cream filling. I'm sad too. But I haven't bought a Hostess product in thirteen years and even that was a nostalgic binge.

Even if Hostess had all volunteer labor they couldn't stay in business selling food products most of us dare not eat. I bet you couldn't give away HoHos in the soup kitchen of a health conscious city.

Those fruit pies were pretty good too. Nice toothsome pastry, never too sweet. The corners were the best bites.

Labor has always gotten an unfair rap, but you really can't blame them for this one.

Good for them!!! If companies would stop giving in to the demands of the useless unions and bailouts would stop, we might, eventually get out of this mess...

good for the unions, not giving in to those greedy bastards. Unions have given too much over the years. Shut em down boys.

Draw that unemployment, every freakin dime.
