    I would now like to ask for a moment of silence to commemorate this sad day.

    =/ I heard this, I'm sure another company will pick up all the famous snack cakes and start making them the same way it will just be Litte Debbie: Twinkie

    ...and along-side Twinkies dies another processed food product which contains Twinkies as its main ingredient... Deep-fried Twinkies.

    ...so this is the true face of Recession... We're staring into the gaping mouth of the beast... life will never be the same again...

    I've only ever had one twinkie in my life ( They are not sold over here except in specified US candy stores and the prices are ridiculous )and I honestly can't say it was anything special :) So not going to be a great loss to me , but thats just me :P

    You say that kingcolex and food patents are almost as insane as mobile phone patents but looking back on things having food companies pick the bones of their fallen competitors (or indeed produce things others no longer produce- seen crystal pepsi lately?) and run with it does not seem as common as other industries.

    Personally I can not stand the things, but anything that lends its name to a legal defence after a fashion ( http://www.snopes.com/legal/twinkie.asp ) I can not hold in an entirely negative light.

    Just that and that is my reaction to most US snack things, they just seem so bland and mediocre.

    I personally prefer Little Debbie stuff better, Hostess stuff tastes a little too light and airy.

    Still, you will be missed you spongy yellow bastard.

    There's a box of Twinkies in that grocery store. Not just any box of Twinkies, the last box of Twinkies that anyone will enjoy in the whole universe. Believe it or not, Twinkies have an expiration date. Some day very soon, Life's little Twinkie gauge is gonna go... empty.

    Didn't they declare bankruptcy about 6 months ago? Well, I've never tried a Twinkie, and I've heard horrifying tales, so I don't really care.

    I mean they're gross but if we didn't eat food that was incredibly processed and disgusting then we'd be very sad people.

    AKA vegans.

    The 18,000 union workers didn't want to take an 8% pay cut to save the company I hope they're happy with the 100% pay cut they got and total loss of benefits in a pretty rough economy
