Enjoy your Twinkies while you can, because Hostess Brands, the storied American manufacturer of Ho Hos and Ding Dongs cake snacks, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday.
The company, based in Irving, Texas, filed for Chapter 11 protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York.
A spokeswoman for Hostess did not immediately return messages from CNNMoney as to whether more employees will lose their jobs, or whether the company will cease making its famous products, including CupCakes and Sno Balls.
The company has about 19,000 full-time and part-time employees, including 10,413 hourly workers and 8,436 salaried workers, according to a court filing. About 83% of the employees are union members.

Wedding cake cooking words such as defeat, ointment, beat as well as etc appears practically a similar. Actually they may be a bit different. Follow this advice to help you appreciate this ...chocolate cake
This will for sure help the fat american unhealthy cause! Get rid of them!
:-( they are so much better than Little Debbie !!!
With a name like Bimbo Bakery, It's Gotz to be GOOD !!
Clearly, Hostess cakes are too big to fail. Therefore, I propose a massive, taxpayer funded government bailout of Hostess Cakes. This will be hope and change in their highest forms. My request is that congress pass this bailout program with all due haste.
That bailout package saved the American auto industry and thousands of well paying jobs.
Close to a million jobs saved and all the ancillary saving in tax revenue and the like. Clearly the person you replied to is ignorant or just plain doesn't care about Americans or America for that matter. They are just haters.
This can't be allowed to happen. Hostess products are an entire stoner food group!
I loves me a good Ho Ho.
