For the right price I will drive down the street to the westons factory and pick up a few pallets of twinkies for you guys.

Still cranking them out up here.

Edit: nope westons justs makes wonder bread. Vachon makes twinkies. Still only a short drive though. Probably worth it, I can stock up on pashion flakies and jos louis too

I havent the foggiest idea. I havent been there in 10 years or so lol. The shipping would probably kill any savings though.

I think its expected.

The only companies in a position to buy the BRAND is Bimbo, Flowers, or Campbell Soup. All have their own snack lines (Entemanns, TastyKake, Pepperridge Farm, etc), and their own market penetrations.

All 3 already make snacks similar to hostess, so it would be trivial to rebrand and repackage. Not sure if any are interested in the Wonderbread brand, since they all already have their own popular labels. The NaturesPride label might be worth it though. It was the only thing making money for the company.

None of them will be interested in the bakeries, or the labor force though. Only the markets. Basically, they will look at the existing bakeries and see calculate capacity.

I hope bimbo buys them great company and their us hq is near my house.

I think tastycake would want to buy a global brand since they are only in the northeast and maybe mod Atlantic

BIMBO TWINKIES?

...bimbo twinkies...

BIMBO TWINKIES?!?!?

I can't decide if that's awesome or just completely messed up.

I mean, this may be the first corporate buy-out stopped by GLAAD and NOW... and possibly the AAJC
