Just when you thought the world has come to an end...


The snack that will never spoil, stale, and will survive an apocalypse is back with a vengeance.

Back in November, we practically had a funeral over the loss of ho-ho's, twinkies, and every other cake made by Hostess.   The company was going out of business, and thousands of people lost their jobs.


Metropoulos & Co.was one of two companies that bought the bankrupt Hostess, and made the announcement:


'The new company will sell all of the Hostess and Dolly Madison branded snack products, including CupCakes, Donettes, Zingers, HoHos, DingDongs, fruit pies and mini muffins.' (CNN)
