TWINKIE APOCOLYPSE

  So I just heard on the news yesterday that Hostess is closing. Dh is upset because he LOVES the Hostess cupcakes. I made the mistake of buying Little Debbie cream filled cupcakes instead one time and he complained endlessly about it. eye rollingHe's weirdly persnickety about stuff like that. He also ALWAYS keeps a supply of the Hostess Donettes. I have been trying to get my hands on some Hostess Twinkies to sell on Ebay because they're going for obscene prices right now but there are none to be found and the local Wal Mart says they won't be getting any more. :( Wish I'd known about this last week. I could have made a fortune.

 Dh did manage to find ONE more box of Hostess Cupcakes and a bag of donettes. I tried to convince him to let me sell it on Ebay. They're going for around 50.00 per box right now and the price will probably go up, but he won't let me.

  Really, I'm kinda glad they're closing. It's all junk food anyway, but dh is not so happy. IMO, the less junk food in the world, the better.

I agree those things are gross! Pure junk anyway! Hostess should've moved into healthier snack market!

If this wasn't all over the news/internet, we would never have noticed.
