Twinkies are dead. Good or bad?

Pabst Blue Ribbon?

Petroleo Brasileiro Petrobras SA?

Professional Bull Riders?

None of them make much sense.

Another iconic name brand is disappearing (at least in the U.S.). Liked the Twinkies, Ding Dongs, etc. when I was a kid, but haven't any in a long, long time. Not a very healthy product at all. Now we still have Ding Dongs, but they're all in Washington.

Never really cared for twinkies anyhow.

Sneakers - I think everybody will be on the skids, if not now, eventually in the next 4 years!

Hostess will remain in business in Canada, this will have no effect on them. But, Twinkies are not made there...

Good. They're yucky and full of refined white flour and added sugar. All makers of unhealthy food are on the skids.

Someone will pick up the option. Brand name is too tempting.
