THIS IS A SAD DAY ACROSS AMERICA!!!!!!

VIA GLOBAL POST

Hostess, the laboratory that brought you the Twinkie and other sugar-filled miracles of the processed food industry, is going out of business. Luckily, the Twinkie has 39 ingredients that help it last a very, very long time, so don’t be shy about going on a shopping rampage and stockpiling your garage with emergency Twinkies.

Hostess Brands Inc., also maker of the iconic Wonder Bread and Ding Dongs, said today that it is shuttering its plants and will liquidate the business, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company made headlines in January after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but now it’s really dying. The company blames its labor union for the ultimate downfall.

Members of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union had been on strike after a September contract slashed workers’ wages and benefits, the Associated Press reported.
