They talked for 1 day and then called it quits. The judge just OK'd the breakup of Hostess.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

Even the makers of the Drug Companies such as the makers of Lipitor, Plavix and Crestor petitioned the Judge saying it would affect their sales.
I guess they were unsuccessful.

There's already massive hoarding happening of the remaining Twinkies on store shelves.

Which means, even if we do have a nuclear war someday, there won't be a single Twinkie left before the war even starts!

Yep. With the brand names/trademarks sold off of the highest bidder to pay the secured creditors, and production almost certainly transferred to non-union bakeries. The Hostess name still has goodwill value.

A money-losing operation can't continue indefinitely, so a combination of revenue increase and/or cost cuts is required. The former was not possible in this case, so the latter was the only option. A hard lesson to learn for management and the unions. Short term pain for long term gain.

No, we'd be fine. The twinkie brand and recipe is owned by Saputo in Canada, who are unaffected by anything that happens in the US. Twinkies are still being made and sold in Canada.

Which means the All-American snack cake is now owned by a Canadian firm.

Coming soon: Twinkies with cheese curd filling! The only sponge cake that squeaks when you chew it!
