Save the Twinkies! Hostess Brand Goes Bankrupt

Hostess Brands Inc. has filed for bankruptcy. The 82-year old company has asked a judge for permission to shut down after its Baker’s Union refused to return to work from a crippling strike.

If the brand does in fact go out of business it could mean the loss of over 18,500 jobs, and the discontinuation of some of America’s most beloved snack foods.

Twinkies, HoHo’s, Fruit Pies, and Wonder Bread, are of the many classic that will be missed if Hostess does officially take the plunge.

Daytime talk show host, Wendy Williams launched the “Save the Twinkie” campaign in hopes of bringing national recognition to the demise of the brand.

"Let's fight to ensure that our children and our children's children get to experience the spongy cream-filled flavor of freedom!" –Wendy Williams
