Hold the (shut down of) the presses!!!
I have to say, while I was shocked about the possibility of Twinkies going away, I was more worried about another iconic food item from the line that could be going away as well: Wonderbread!
However, this could become less of a concern after the latest news! At a hearing today, Hostess and the union agreed to sit down to talk over their differences. While production is still on hold, the two groups are slated to begin mediation Tuesday morning.
Not only is this possibly great news for the Twinkie (and all other Hostess product) fans out there, it could also mean good news for the workers. The hearing over the motion filed by Hostess to begin a shut down is scheduled to resume Wednesday.
The wait is on to see if Twinkie the Kid will continue his snack food reign or if he will ride off into the sunset.
