Hostess announces liquidation, the end of Twinkies

Snack cake company makes good on its threat to go out of business in light of worker strike

We sure hope you took us seriously yesterday when we told you to stockpile your Twinkies, because today Hostess has officially announced that it is going out of business.

Will your life be emptier without such cream-filled delights as Ho-Ho’s, Ding Dongs and those weird Twinkies that are covered in raspberry goo? We can’t say. What we do know is that Hostess Brands Inc. has sought court permission for liquidation, just as it threatened it would if striking workers did not return to their posts by 5 p.m. yesterday.
