Moms, Hostess who makes Twinkies announced that they will be going out of business. What are your thoughts on this? Good or bad and how are you going to break it to your children?

We don't eat anything made by hostess, I think their products are unhealthy.
I feel bad for people losing their jobs though.

Bad since people are losing their jobs.  My boys are mostly unaware of Hostess products (I think they've pointed to the boxes occasionally wanting me to buy them but I never have).

As bad as Twinkies are for us, it is sad to think that they'll be gone forever.

We don't eat those things so it won't affect us. I am very sorry for the 18,000+ employees that are losing their jobs, though.

My kids know nothing of Hostess so it's not a big deal to them.  I only care because of the nostalgia.  We don't really buy many of their products.

I haven't had a Twinkie since I was a kid. My kids haven't had any ever.
