That's insane...LOL!! But, with a shelf life of something like 40 yrs, you wouldn't have to worry about them being old and stale! More importantly, where can I get the Hostess cupcakes?!!

I wouldn't get too excited.

The 'brand' is too valuable to disappear.

The name and product will be back and the only difference will be they are manufactured by a different company.

You're absolutely right- a Mexican company has already expressed interest in the brand name & products/recipes.

Has anyone had a twinkie lately? I haven't had one in years, a few months i bought a little pack and they were not as tasty as I remember as a kid.

Doesn't Walmart have a knock off twinkie?

We buy and consume foreign products daily, but watching an American company be sold to another land over corporate greed is where my boycotts begin. Barely anything is "made in the USA" anymore. Half the crap in my house probably came from Japan or china. I work for Furd (sorry guys) Razz , and just about everything in a new F series is labeled from another country. How can we "buy american" when nothing is truly made here anymore? Mexican Twinkies???? no, thanks

I read Pepperidge Farms is making a play for Hostess too- maybe that smell won't be gone to long.

Well Bicknell there is only 1 major brewer left in the USA that is all American owned. That is Yuengling. I am partial to BUD as I work for them. I was not happy about it either but we were the last major brewer left in the US. Miller Coors sold out long before we did to the South Africans. Look on their can Miller SAB South African Breweries. They don't say KING of BEERS for nothin. Besides Belgium is better than China or South Africa.

I've likely mentioned this before, but I'm sure most of you have heard of Saginaw Steering Gear, and it's what's in all of our cars. Their plants are down the road a few miles from me. It's now called Nexteer, and it's now owned by the Chinese. No telling when they are apt to haul the whole plant machinery out of here. Only good news is that China's economy is dropping off somewhat......
Nothing to do with junk food though ! Very Happy

I know what u mean, we used to have a Rainbo bread factory intown and as a kid i used to love passing by there just for the smell. And if we were lucky, we would stop by and buy some fresh bread and snacks.

I think Good Morning America is having a Made In America special for holiday gifts tomorrow.

There are plenty of great micro brews around. Harpoon in Beantown & Red Hook up in NH. Sam Adams in now owned by Bud but they still make it local & I still consider them a Boston based company as they still have independent operations.

I work for the railroad and we serve a Nabisco plant that makes oreos and chips ahoy.. sometimes they come out with a big A$$ bag off all types of cookies for us after we get done spotting the plant, It smells so good and the cookies are 10 times better than what you get off the shelf. I love fresh cookies.
