It couldn't survive. The whole foods industry waa putting them down anyway. When the union went on strike it was all she wrote.
I wonder if it is just a ploy to get people out there to buy their product (since I am sure that with the economy no one is really buying). I don't eat it so I really don't care if they go out of business.
So I have been reading alot of posts on here. And while I agree with some, others I do not. My husband lost his job today because of the shut down. They are going to liquidate. Hostess in 2008 filed bankrupcy not 10 years ago. My husband took a paycut then.They regrouped and got money to keep going.Well, here it is 4 years later and they are in the same boat. Only this time, they asked for another paycut that was about 30% of their pay if you take into account that they were hiking up benifits. yes they stopped contributing to the pensions over a year ago and it doesn't look like he will have any of that in the future. The teamsters passed the pay cut we were ok (somewhat) with that. We still had a job. But the bakers it didn';t pass there. But it went through anyway. Some of this I don't understand how it went through. So my opinion is that no its not the workers fault. I have seen first hand what this company has put its employees through. The fault is with upper management. And poor direction. Plus the fact that like so many of you said people are getting more health conscience. Whats funny is my husband worked there yet we rarely ate any of the sweets. Now the Natures Pride I am going to miss. Yes someone might buy the name and start making them but the workers will not get their jobs back and it might take a while for them to sell everything off.
I've never had one, soooo..don't care about the product.
Sucks though for all the employees!
Man, I'm going to miss those glazed donuts. I only buy them once in awhile, but now they won't be there when get a craving. =(
Lets blame the president
I eat a few hostess mini donuts a few times a week. I'll miss them.
