The Twinkie is a part of Americana. There should be some sadness that it is lost. (Not to mention Wonder Bread, Zingers, Snow Balls, Cup Cakes and Fruit Pies.) I almost always had one of these in my lunch whine I was in school – 40 years ago. in all liklihood the largest brand names will be bought by other producers. The rights to most of the old Hostess products will be bought up by other vendors. They will reappear on store shelves. I hope that they don’t change much.
