(well-deserved post is well-deserved)

I agree with MDF. I heard (via ESPN radio, no less, so take that as you will) that they were looking to sell it.

What will likely happen is that some other company will buy it but still produce the same products. I don’t think anyone buying Hostess will want to remove the name “Twinkies” from their repertoire. A rose by a different name would taste just as sweet, but it wouldn’t sell as well.

So I’m betting that you’ll still see all of your favorite Hostess snacks, but instead of seeing “Hostess,” you might see another company’s name in the corner. Perhaps you’ll still see “Hostess.” But they aren’t getting rid of Twinkies.

I will send you a box of these delicacies to your house.
No, that is too dangerous.
There are a few in the Wal-Mart near you, HURRY.
