We started our Twinkies Challenge just over two weeks ago. After the roller coaster of the Hostess bankruptcy and collapse, then the possible chance at sorting out an agreement between the company’s management and one of its  unions, it turns out the company is done. Watch for Hostess’ assets to be snapped up quickly; after all, these are iconic brands that needed a better marketing plan.

I wonder if by the time Hostess Cupcakes and Twinkies are revived, these Twinkies in the jar will change in appearance. So far they seem to be holding up fine.
