Better stockpile your snack cakes! Hostess closes up shop

 
OK, we know this isn’t really healthy news—although it might help trim kids’ waistlines, now that we think about it—but it’s a milestone nonetheless. So, here it is: Hostess, the makers of Ho Hos, Twinkies, Cupcakes, Donettes, Wonder Bread and more deliciously processed goodies are closing up shop.

 

Why (oh, why, oh, why?!) you ask? Because the bakers are on strike seeking better terms for their new contract, and the struggling company just can’t afford to keep running. Because of this, nearly 18,500 workers are being laid off, something that’ll hit the economy far harder than the dwindling Ho Hos supply.

 

But don’t freak out, Twinky devotees: There’s a good chance your favorite plastic-packaged goodies will hit shelves once again since the company is for sale. There’s just no telling when (or if) production might resume.

 

Moral of the story? Grab your guilty pleasures at the grocery store now before they’re gone. Or, you know, whip up a way healthier version yourself.
