Hostage for Hostess

11 Dec

 Are you feeling it yet?  The pull of withdrawal as you can no longer find your beloved Twinkie?  The longing for Zinger?

I have to admit that I was never a big Twinkie person.  I preferred Zingers and they are tied up in this mess.

I will say it gives me pause to be in a grocery store or gas stop and see that empty slot on the shelf.

Passing the note in Target that reads “Target no longer carries Hostess brands.   We apologize….”

How long do you think it will be before someone announces they have successfully picked up the Hostess tab and starts cranking these out again?  Do we really want to live in a world without SnoBalls?

With 12/21/12 on the way – was this a warning shot?  Was the fall of the Twinkies empire the signal of the end of the world?
