I've always preferred little debbie.


Quoting shivasgirl:

Walmart's Great Value generic Twinkies and Ding Dongs are better than Hostess and are not made with beef fat

I just posted the wiki page, it has a list of the brands they own. DH works for bimbo bakeries in PA, is the only reason I know anything lol. I don't know much about monopolies and business but they do own a good chunk of the market.... i think they could buy the recipes but not the name?

Quoting Anonymous:

huh.  you learn something new every day!


Quoting 0oSamanthaKayo0:

Bimbo own entennmans...


Quoting Anonymous:


there are enough other competitors than bimbo that there's really no danger of a monopoly.  tastee kakes, little debbie, entemanns.  truly, when I think of Bimbo, I start hearing La Cucaracha in my head.



Quoting 0oSamanthaKayo0:

Most likely. Bimbo Bakeries USA, if it doesn't give them a monopoly. Google them, they own most of that market already....
People are going crazy it isn't the first time Hostess has gone under.

 I heard this am that Groupa Bimbo is buying the company.

It was originally a mexican company. They branched here. They have factories here. Employing americans.

Please don't think that I am referring this to being racial, I never even thought of them as that. I was repeating what the news had said!

No i didn't take it like that. It looked like you thought they were outsourcing to Mexico, maybe I read it wrong.

I can see that you read it the other way. Sometimes I may come off as rude. Lol. But I'm not. I think that it would be kinda great to keep them around instead of someone literally paying 3 million dollars for 4 boxes of twinkies. Now that is really really stupid.
