With workers continuing to strike and the company threatening to close, Hostess snack cake lovers are forced to contemplate a world without Twinkies.
The buttery, beloved snack cakes were first created in 1930 with basic, wholesome ingredients and a banana-cream filling. Over the years, in an effort to extend the snack cake's shelf life, the butter, eggs, and milk were replaced with chemicals and stabilizers; a banana shortage during World War II made vanilla the standard Twinkie filling flavor.
Many people I know would be devastated without their Twinkies.
This article gives a recipe to make these at home.good luck

Oh no, dolly madison is part of hostess, no more zingers for the kids. No more wonder bread "as long as they are on strike".
I just read that a Mexican company is looking to buy this company and continue making Twinkies.
A Mexican company called BIMBO BAKERIES.
Could I make that up?

I want to know the Hubpages communities opinion on war. And maybe this could be the start of a debate that can answer a lot of questions the government refuses to ask or answer.
