twinkies being sold for 1000's of dollars on ebay

    Anyone dumb enough to pay that kind of money for Twinkies deserves to be ripped off. Some other company is bound to buy up Hostess' brands/recipes during their bankruptcy proceedings, so the products will be back on store shelves soon.

    Well I guess some people are going through Twinkie withdrawals ....

    If you want them so much you can make your own

      You could buy all the ingredients for Twinkies and hire someone to make you a big batch for less money. I suppose the only ingredient that would be hard to get your hands on is the magic preservative that makes them last for decades.

    What a waste since another company has already announced they are taking over Twinkie production...

    Did you check this out yourself? There are actually a lot of Twinkies listed on ebay, but only at about 99 cents, and a lot of them don't even have bids. It doesn't look like people are falling for it. That makes me feel better. :-)

      actually four 10 pack boxes recently sold for $80. (that's near $20 retail) and one single 10 pack box has sold for $25 free shipping. On amazon, prices are slightly lower but much more consistent sellers. People are buying them for collector value as they are the last new, unopened twinkie boxes from hostess. It will be a while still until people can have fresh twinkies after this last batch is done.

    You can still get them in stores near me. 

    I bet some tosser listed them for a $1000 'but in now' price.  And the media did their usual stellar job of keeping it all in proportion.

      A bunch of hype. Perhaps we have another troll in our midst stirring things up. Why is it that so many people with brand new HP accounts start postings in the forums?

    And...I am now selling 10 pack drake's (hostess) coffee cake boxes for $15 + shipping on amazon. (bought 11 for $2.50 each) They are flying out the door. Go get some if you want to make some quick and easy cash!

    That's great.  People can't find jobs, are having trouble feeding their families, are being evicted, losing homes to foreclosure, and can't get medical care, but they can afford to pay $25 for a flippin' box of Twinkies.

    And we wonder why the politicians WE put in office have screwed up priorities?????
