Yeah I couldnt believe it. Just the other day I was looking at boxes of hostess products for a little over a dollar and now they are demanding premiums. I could have funded my collection by buying up hostess products and selling on ebay. How bizarre this is getting.

Hostess brand will not be a thing of the past. Someone will purchase the name, move to Mexico, and ship the product back to us.

What am I missing here guys?

Are there card panels on the back?


Just regular ole Boxes of Twinkies in the store now?


I don't get it. You mean people are buying boxes of Twinkies because they think they will be collector items down the road? You have to be kidding, Right?

John folks are buying out Twinkies at huge prices due to the company going under.

Here is my Hostess item:



I would not be surprised if some of the Hostess
brand was purchased by another company, even with
the bankruptcy.
