People are Hoarding Twinkies Now That Hostess is Shutting Down
On Friday, Hostess announced they were officially shutting down, and they immediately stopped producing Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Ho Hos. And that sparked a pretty ridiculous nationwide panic. Apparently some people started flocking to grocery stores to buy Twinkies, to HOARD them or sell them on eBay at ridiculously inflated prices. Ya know, if you cared about Twinkies that much before, maybe they wouldn't have GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.
Anyway, we heard reports that boxes of Twinkies were selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay, although we couldn't find any live auctions with bids that high.
And we STRONGLY recommend you do NOT bid on them. Because we'd be SHOCKED if this was the end of Twinkies. The Hostess brands are going to be auctioned off and SOMEONE'S going to buy Twinkies. They will be back.
