Seriously? According to the Chicago Tribune, a box of Twinkies (10 inside) has been listed on eBay for an opening bid of $200,000.
While that may be the wishful thinking of a seller addled by too much cream filling, the hoarding has definitely started. After Hostess announced that it was going out of business on Friday, stores have reported a virtual clearing of the shelves of products such as Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Ho-Hos.
There are no guarantees, but business insiders say it's doubtful that the production of Twinkies and other Hostess products will cease. The Connecticut Post reports that Hostess is due Monday in bankruptcy court to start selling off its assets.
The likelihood that another company will buy the rights to popular products like Twinkies is high, the Post said, adding that Twinkies alone brought in $68 million in revenue this year.
So are you hoarding cream-filled sponge cakes just in case they're not coming back?
