It's not dead yet. The Twinkie, that is.

Someone might buy it up at auction and keep making them.

In fact, that sounds like a great project for Bleacher Nation. We can repackage them with The Legs ™ logo and include a free banana hammock in every box. With Dick Tidrow as the spokesperson, we'd have a hit in no time!

Oh, the Twinkie most definitely will not go away - it's far too valuable. But it could be a long time before it comes back if the bankruptcy goes through. That process can take a while, depending on when that asset is sold. Could be no Twinkies for a year, and then a glorious return campaign ...

If any of you read as many comic books from the 1970s/80s as I did you'd understand that I'm very worried since Hostess snacks were the preferred crime fighting weapon of a variety of superheroes
