After 82 yrs of making Twinkies  cupcakes, moon pie’s and wonder bread, Hostess is closing its doors.

The company cites changing “consumer taste” along with labor disputes and high production costs as the culprit.

I remember Dad always putting Twinkies in his lunch bucket for work and if he came home early from a rain out I would get to eat it for him.

82 yrs is a long time but I actually celebrate this small victory for mankind and more importantly the children of the future because know I feel like there is opportunity for something else to step up and takes its place.  Whatever product it is will start in the schools first and if the kids like it, then it will pass on to everyday people
