The Return of the Twinkie

Snack lovers went into a slight panic when Hostess went out of business last year, because that meant no more Twinkies. To me, it meant no more Merita bread, and I still haven't adjusted. But fear no more, Twinkies will return July 15th!

Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo bought Twinkies and other Hostess cakes for $410 million.

Apollo Global Management, founded by Leon Black, is known for buying troubled brands then selling them for a profit; its investments include fast-food chains Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. Metropoulos & Co., which has revamped then sold off brands including Chef Boyardee and Bumble Bee, also owns Pabst Brewing Co.

The trimmed-down Hostess Brands LLC has a far less costly operating structure than the predecessor company. Some of the previous workers were hired back, but they're no longer unionized.

When Twinkies return, they will cost $3.99 for a box of ten. Other Hostess products, such as Wonder Bread, were bought by different companies. Link  -via Fark

No union busting intended here, nothing to see folks, keep moving along and buy your crap junk food that dulls your intellect and destroys your economic prospects. Go turn on Fox news to learn the "truth". Watch Alex Jones to learn the "truth". Sorry about *your* union job going away but that's capitalism. Rah rah rah capitalism. Workin' for the man, eatin' my bloody twinkies. I am a moron and this is my wife, she is frosting a cake with a paper knife -- Frank Zappa

regardless of their likely return I will never eat another one unless I'm about to die of some horrid other proverbial painful death. Simply not interested in buying "crap" foods any-longer with little to no value health-wise.
