    If Hostess closes, what product will you miss the most?

    Hostess is all over the news right now.  What product would you miss most if it disappeared from store shelves?

    What I'll miss most are the 275 jobs Hostess provided in my town. That puts a big hole in the local economy.

    Every single one of their magnificent products.  But to narrow it down, anything without coconut and more specifically - Suzi-Q's  They were always rare in our area but once in a while you could find them.

    No offense to Little Debbie and her band of bakers but they cannot hold a candle to Hostess.

    Wonder Bread...........it tastes good, is " soft" and " spongy"............plus...........it builds bodies 12 ways.......................

    So long, Twinkies, Cupcakes and whatever else...............WonderBread is the bread that I have spent years attempting to recreate in my own kitchen.

    I would have to say twinkies for sure, I used to love them when I was younger.

    I will also miss Wonder Bread.

    On a lighter note I recently rewatched the movie Zombieland. Our heroes can no longer get Twinkies for their survival packs.

    I would miss the pink snowballs, they also come in other colors for the holidays too.

    I don't eat this kind of food, so I won't miss the food. I do, however, worry about what all the employees will do.

      Most of them, with others, will apply for unemployment. Added to the unemployed artificially cut from the reports the past two months in order to rig the numbers before the election, we may expect some dismal stats in the near future.

    I would say Wonder Bread, but what I find to be the most sickening is the greed involved that caused this issue to start with, along with those clowns that were cited at buying Twinkies at an alarming rate of 20 to 40 dollars a box!  Idiots!  Ever heard of generic products?  To think that some people will go on E-Bay and spend that much money on junk food (obviously, you have plenty of extra money to waste) and won't donate a dang dime to a cause like "feed the children" or any other type of cause or charity, just shows how some of these gluts prioritize their life.  Besides, a Twinkie sucks anyway...  Simple sugars, basic lipids, flour, blah!  Some people need to seek out some real food and perhaps get a life...

    I would miss the plain and simple wonder bread. That has been a staple in my household since my children were toddlers. I went to the "day old" store to buy bread at a fraction of the cost of "fresh" bread. I didn't care if the bread was made today or yesterday. My taste buds didn't know the difference, but my pocketbook was happy. Bye-bye Hostess. I'll miss you!
