Will Twinkies be reborn through new Mexican ownership?
.... a Mexican company may be angling to resurrect the golden Twinkies.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, while food producers ConAgra and Flowers Food -the American company behind Nature Valley granola -have expressed interest, along with Little Debbie baker McKee Foods, Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo may hold the inside track.

Grupo Bimbo is the world’s largest bread baking firm, which already owns parts of Sara Lee, Entenmann’s and Thomas English Muffins and previously made what was considered a low-ball offer of $580 million a few years ago, Forbes reports. Now Hostess may only be worth $135 million.

Re: Will Twinkies be reborn through new Mexican ownership?
I can't find any Hostess products in the stores around me. Can't believe how quickly they were snatched up.

I guess it's because "opportunists" are reselling them on ebay:


Price of Twinkies skyrockets on eBay, Craigslist

Twinkies are being marketed on the Internet like exquisite delicacies.

Hours after Twinkie-maker Hostess announced its plans to close its doors forever, people flocked to stores to fill their shopping baskets with boxes of the cream-filled sponge cakes and their sibling snacks -- Ding Dongs, Ho Hos and Zingers.

Late Friday and Saturday, the opportunists took to the websites eBay and Craigslist. They began marketing their hoard to whimsical collectors and junk-food lovers for hundreds -- and in some cases -- thousands of dollars. That's a fat profit margin, when you consider the retail price for a box of 10 Twinkies is roughly $5.

I just checked ebay and an auction listing for 1 box of Twinkies just sold for $25.99! Another one ended shortly after, for 4 boxes--final bid was $81.00!

Re: Will Twinkies be reborn through new Mexican ownership?
I never heard of the Twinkie Defense.

What Is the 'Twinkie Defense'?

Hostess' bankruptcy is raising fears that HoHos may soon be history. But the Twinkie will never be forgotten by the criminal justice system, thanks to the so-called "Twinkie defense."

What is the Twinkie defense? It dates back to a 1979 murder case in San Francisco (dramatized in the movie "Milk") in which ex-cop-turned-politician Dan White shot and killed fellow politicians Harvey Milk and George Moscone. News reports called White's defense the "Twinkie defense," but in reality, Twinkies were barely even mentioned at trial.

White was eventually acquitted of murder, though he didn't entirely escape justice. While Hostess snack cakes were indeed part of the evidence, they weren't used in the way people think.

In my opinion, another American company that will elect not use union workers will purchase the Hostess Company if you consider our dismal economic conditions, compounded by the restrictions, of obamacare and the excessive taxation it brings makes unions unsustainable.
