NEW YORK (AP) — Hostess Brands Inc. said it likely won’t make an announcement until Friday morning on whether it will move to liquidate its business, after the company had set a Thursday deadline for striking employees to return to work. The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread had warned employees that would file a motion in U.S. Bankruptcy Court to unwind its business and sell off assets if plant operations didn’t return to normal levels by 5 p.m. EST Thursday. That would result in the loss of about 18,000 jobs.
I haven’t really been paying too much attention to this whole Hostess controversy. Yeah I’d seen a bunch of tweets about how Twinkies may be going out of business and shit. I didn’t really care because I don’t eat twinkies anymore and frankly I haven’t seen anybody eat a twinkie since the Gilded Age. But guess what? Wonder Bread is my joint. Whole Wheat Wonder bread all day every day off camera every way. It’s the best bread out there and I’ve tried them all. An absolute sandwich difference maker. If I lose Wonderbread I lose my way of life. I know the Pepperidge Farm bread lunatics are going to come out of the woodwork now. Listen they got great cookies but their bread is too stiff. Wonderbread has a softness that frankly I don’t know if I can live without and that’s me trying to be reasonable. So somebody tell me what I need to do to resolve this dispute and I will use the full power of my mogul office to do it.
