Poll: Which Hostess Treat Will You Miss The Most?

Following a nationwide strike, Texas snack company Hostess, maker of beloved goodies such as Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Ho Hos, is going out of business and laying off its 18,500 plant workers, reports CBS LA. The strike has also forced the company to put its brands up for sale.

According to the official Hostess Brands website, the company wrote “We are sorry to announce that Hostess Brands, Inc. has been forced by a Bakers strike to shut down all operations and sell all company assets. For more information, go to Thank you for all of your loyalty and support over the years.”


The news hits hard for many lovers of Hostess’ iconic snacks, so in honor of all the years they’ve been providing delicious treats since its founding in 1930, we want to know which snack will you miss the most after Hostess closes its doors?
