“According to Hostess brand representatives, the company cannot recoup from  the nationwide strike that their plant workers went on last week. Workers  stopped manufacturing the tasty goods in protest to a contract that would cut  their pay wages and healthcare benefits. As a result, 18,500 workers will be  laid off and the Hostess brand is going up for sale. Three plants were already  closed earlier this week.

The private company, which was founded in 1930, has been on shaky ground for  a while, being that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January. In a letter  posted on the company website, CEO Gregory F. Rayburn said:

“Many people have worked incredibly long and hard to keep this from  happening, but now Hostess Brands has no other alternative than to begin the  process of winding down and preparing for the sale of our iconic  brands.”

In addition to Twinkies and Wonder Bread, we also have to say bye-bye to Ding  Dongs, Ho Ho’s and Dolly Madison. It’s a sad day for snackers, indeed.”
