  • Since Hostess announced its plans last week to close its doors, fans of Twinkies, Cup Cakes, and Ding-Dongs are emptying grocery and convenient store shelves.

    "We're definitely seeing a sharp increase in purchases of Hostess products today," said Mike Siemienas, spokesman for grocery store operator Supervalu. "We expect this will continue as more consumers become aware of the news.

    The Texas based company blames their shut-down on employee-strikes over forced contracts.

    Siemienas said that customers at Supervalu stores across the nation such as Albertson’s, Jewel-Osco, Acme, and Shaw’s are snatching their favorites before they are gone for good.

    "These products are available while supplies last," he said. "But we're now preparing for the fact that we won't have them in the near future."

    1. Funny, I am aware of these products, they were good back in the day….However for the last 5 years I have been working in a supermarket and NEVER sold a hostess product until Friday when everyone started looking for them….People should have been buying these some time ago….Maybe, just maybe they would not be going out of business…..
