I don't like Twinkies anyway. Snoballs, Ding Dongs, Ho-Hos and Choco-diles are another matter. Hopefully whoever steps up to buy the names/recipes will have better distribution in NY. I have to go PA to get my fix and still haven't seen a Choco-dile in years.

Thanks, I appreciate the offer, but TastyKakes are plentiful in the area. It seems all we get are those and freakin Little Debbie. All well and good for the stoners and drunks, but those of us with more refined pallets (and the waistline to prove it) need the real thing. Though I do like the Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes.

Nice edit taking out the part where you put the blame entirely on the "CEO is a greedy POS".
Chose to edit it because its a political view. Read the rules.

Edit* and you know people edit things for a reason right? I guess if you did you wouldn't have posted it in the first place though.

heh, the Teamsters told BCTGM to end the strike because if they didn't it would be the end of the company

I expect this whole affair to be a much tossed about talking point, or a convenient rhetorical cudgel for politicians and their partisans to beat others up with

It was weird at the nearby hostess bakery. The drivers/salesman were all Teamsters, and were told to cross the picket lines (Bakers Union) to pick up product being shipped in from other bakeries.

I didnt envy those drivers. Its hard to say what hey were hoping the final outcome was going to be. 10 years worth of various bankcruptcies, and all sorts of emergency investments from all sorts of shady vultures.

Heh... When the mechanics at Northwest Airlines (AMFA) went on strike, guys in the IAMAW (United airlines and some others) were told by the union that it was okay to cross the AMFA picket lines. So much for solidarity.

AMFA: Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association
IAMAW: International association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
