Twinkies crisis hits locally
Shortly after Twinkies-provider Hostess Brands announced it was ceasing production Friday, November 16, the iconic cream-filled cakes were being sold on eBay. By Saturday, in three stores on Pantops, nary a Twinkie was to be found, and in two, in the Hostess section, empty shelves– except for doughnuts– greeted Ding Dong seekers. The last snack-cakes standing: Ho Hos, Sno Balls, and CupCakes.
Correction 11/21/12: The spelling of Sno Balls was wrong in the original version.
