People Are Hoarding Twinkies Now That Hostess Is Shutting Down

People Are Hoarding Twinkies Now That Hostess Is Shutting Down

On Friday, Hostess announced they were officially shutting down, and they immediately stopped producing Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Ho Hos…and that sparked a pretty ridiculous nationwide panic.

Apparently some people started flocking to grocery stores to buy Twinkies to hoard or sell on eBay at ridiculously inflated prices. (Side note:  if you cared about Twinkies that much before, maybe they wouldn’t have GONE OUT OF BUSINESS.)

Anyway, we heard reports that boxes of Twinkies were selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay, although we couldn’t find any live auctions with bids that high.

We strongly recommend you do not bid on them. We’d be SHOCKED if this was the end of Twinkies. The Hostess brands are going to be auctioned off and someone’s bound to buy the Twinkie recipe. They will be back. (We hope.)
