    Whoa! Did you feel the vacuum in the forum as Rick rushed out to the nearest store to camp out in line?

    I sincerely hope someone will send me some, after the chronic depression of not finding a single pack while I was visiting last year.

    There is no rushing out. I've been sitting right here in front of the factory doors since the day they closed. I KNEW this day would come. (God inside my head told me so...or George. Either way).

    I'm pretty sure this move was nothing more than to bust the union and start over.

    Somewhere there has to be a warehouse full of all but forgotten Twinkies. Maybe in Russia.

    In this particular case I think replacing the word corporate with union would be appropriate.

    The union voted their jobs away. Hard to blame management on this one. I just meant that they shut down and moved production so they didn't have to deal with the same folks again. Perhaps I could have said that better. Even the Teamsters were on Hostess's side. Now they get to exit California and hire non-union workers.
