Are Twinkies seriously the only thing people know about Hostess?

I did once see some Twinkies at an imported candy stall at a fair once here in the UK. I promptly put them back down after reading the ingredients.

As seen in this thread with various other examples (Wonderbread, etc), no?

Don't get me wrong, Hostess is most famous for twinkies. So yeah, wouldn't you expect people to remember them by their biggest product?

It's like someone connecting Sonic with SEGA. No one is saying that is what they only know about SEGA, but it is their biggest mascot.

I've never really been that big a fan of Twinkies, But... where will I get my beloved muffin now? ;_;

Seriously, these muffins are so underrated they're amazing and were always my preferred dessert/snack.

I am sad. Derpy is sad. And I'm pretty sure this guy is sad that he won't be doing this again

No not really, but Twinkies are to Hostess what Mario is to Nintendo.

You could replace Twinkie with most American confectionery here, Jez. There aren't quite as many laws... have you seen the stuff they put in Twizzlers?

Seriously though, once had imported Twinkies and they weren't very nice. Think I'll stick with Cadbury's-branded mini rolls or something with flavour in it instead.

I even have to disagree with corporate whore Batman.

Pretty much, but minus all the sweets (I've had it all) wonder bread, we get that brand all the time.

What bothers me about this is that Drake's, a local subsidiary of Hostess, is going with them. They make the most amazing cream filled cakes called Ring Dings.

...my mind is all kinds of blown right now.

As to Twinkies... I only tried them once in my life, when my family went down to the US for a one week vacation at New York City. We caught a convenience store on the road, and I finally decided to see what the big deal was (cash register made the Ring sound effect - my hero).

It was... okay. I much prefer eclairs, but they're not bad. Hopefully they can be sold off to another company, because that's quite a big deal of money a company can make there.

There was a Catman in an early Justice League episode; the one where Green Lantern, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, and Hawkgirl get sent through a warp anomaly into a 1960s era city and meet up with the Justice Guild, an alternate universe counterpart of the Justice League that got turned into a comic series that the Green Lantern read when he was a kid. The Justice Guild was composed of Catman, Tom Turbine, The Streak, Black Siren, and Green Guardsman.

I swear this is the only brand of bread my Mom buys! Welp, be better time than any to maybe find a healthier brand out there...

Like that's likely...

My hatred for Hostess products aside, hearing this made me feel a little bit sad. Hostess is a pop culture icon, especially the Twinkie (its most famous product). It's a company full of products adored through generations, kids, adults, and elderly alike. So it's rather disappointing to see their products no longer being made.

Excellent.

But seriously, shame to see a 82 year old company go.

Thankfully my dad found out about this yesterday... and as soon as he heard it he rushed to find some Twinkies. And as he expected, the Twinkies were already clearing out. It took him three stores later until he found and bought three boxes of Twinkies and one box of chocolate filled Twinkies.

Today he bought a bunch of other hostess products, and we're not sure as to what to do with them as of yet. Once again, it was a pain to find, but he managed to find them.

Dad and I are hopeful that someone will buy the company/rights to the products/whatever, but I'm a little worried that they wont be as good as they used to. I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to that.

Surely if Twinkies are still popular surely someone would buy them out? Posted Image
