Hostess Brands Bankruptcy 2012

Tragic or Time's Up: Are You Sad About the Hostess Bankruptcy?


After several years of financial struggles, Hostess Brands Inc. is preparing to file for bankruptcy. Home of the classic Wonder Bread and signature snacks like the Twinkie, Hostess has had trouble holding on to customers who veered toward healthier foods in recent years.

The company, first formed in 1930 under the name Interstate Baking Co., joins a growing list of companies that filed for bankruptcy last year. Does the uncertain future of Hostess make you sad?

There definitely is some nostalgia attached, but I just can't feel bad for a company who pushes pure crap and chemicals on people.

that's a tough one really. they are a brand that i grew up on so there's a sense of nostalgia, however in the age of being healthy even with desserts, i think that if hostess wants to remain as part of americana, then they need to make healthier versions of their snacks and hope those sell.
