    Default Hostess shutting down?!?

    http://www.hostessbrands.com/Closing.aspx


    When I first heard it, I thought it was a joke.

    Now that I've seen it, I see how real it is.

    I am kinda bummed by now not being able to enjoy the occasional Ding Dong in the future, and my children most likely will never enjoy them.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!

    Tri.fecta

    Odds are they will get bought by someone. Still, my wife and I went out tonight and grabbed what was left from the shelves of a couple stores. Twinkies and Ding Dongs were sold out, but we were able to get some chocolate donettes and some zingers.

    I went to another store on Saturday and got a pack of Ding Dongs, more raspberry zingers, and two packs of crumb donettes (my favorite of the donettes). I'd love to get some snoballs, but the only place I know that stocks them is across town and I don't want to walk. But . . . maybe I will anyway. Could be fun.

    Haha. I thought it was 8-ball, but I honestly don't know much about that sort of thing other than the odd rap lyric and TV show.
