Something Else to Hoard: Twinkies

Just great.  Now in addition to ammo, magazines, rifles, food, gas, medicine and such we now have to add Hostess Twinkies to our prep list.

Hostess, the makers of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread, is going out of business after striking workers failed to heed a Thursday deadline to return to work, the company said.

“We deeply regret the necessity of today’s decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike,” Hostess CEO Gregory F. Rayburn said in announcing that the firm had filed a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to shutter its business. “Hostess Brands will move promptly to lay off most of its 18,500-member workforce and focus on selling its assets to the highest bidders.”

Dang.  Now we know why it was so hard to find a Twinkie in Zombieland.

Thank Goodness we still have Moon Pies.
