Guess who’s back…

  • July 15 The day that Twinkies will make their long-awaited return to store shelves, complete with a new tagline: ‘‘The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever.’’ While Twinkies are expected to return exactly as they were, some of the other returning Hostess snack cakes will apparently have modified recipes. Those in smaller cities and towns will also be happy to hear that changes to the company’s operations division have also drastically increased the number of stores which can receive fresh product shipments straight from Hostess. source

Pastry News of the Day: Although news of Hostess’ impending liquidation continues to tear at the heartstrings of many Americans, we can rest assured that the Twinkie may, in fact, live on as a subsidiary of Pabst Brewing Company. Ernie is hoping for PBR-flavored Twinkies to emerge from this sale. (It’s like dipping them in water, right? — Ed.) Personally, I’m horrified that two things I do not even remotely enjoy might Voltron together into a dangerous combination of awful that will likely plague any/every social gathering I attend here in Colorado. — Scott @ SFB
Update: Apparently the universe is on our side Tumblr. There won’t be PBR Twinkies after all.

Could these Twinkies outlast their parent company? Apparently, Hostess set a 5pm EST Thursday deadline for their striking employees to return to their jobs — or the company would liquidate, resulting in a loss of 18,000 jobs. “We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike,” the company’s CEO, Gregory F. Rayburn, said Wednesday. The company won’t make a final decision until Friday, but now seems like a good time to stock up on some HoHos. (photo by Christian Cable/Flickr)

Not the Twinkies! Hostess files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
Too many employees, too much debt: Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, HoHos, Ding Dongs, Zingers and other amusingly-named foods (including Wonder bread), says that it has too many legacy payments. With 12 unions making up 83 percent of its 19,000 employees, the company says it ”is not competitive, primarily due to legacy pension and medical benefit obligations and restrictive work rules.” The company, which is still negotiating with its unions, will stay in business thanks to $75 million in financing from lenders.
