Sunday morning without little powdered sugar donuts?

Oh, the humanity!

Who else makes lpsd's, waxy-chocolate donuts and the like?

Nichols?

Entenmanns?

There is no reason to panic!

If we work together and pool our intel we can get through this, people.

Little Debbie, not quite the same, but passable. Much better to hit up your corner donut shop.

UPDATE: I saw bags of little Krispy Kreme chocolate donuts in Kroger this afternoon. Alternatives are out there. I sense a comparison test coming in the near future. Hope our Mr. Coffee is up to the challenge.

I am too cheap to buy Starbucks. Like Enzyte Bob Speedway coffee beats all others for price/size and flavor choices. Dark roast or if brewed at home Italian Roast

Not a fan of day old Krispy Kreme doughnuts . There used to be two old women that opened a doughnut shop in an old Taco Bell along Memorial Dr. Lancaster. They had the best doughnuts fresh or.even after a couple of days.

Kroger makes Kroger brand pastries you can get in the store or at Turkey Hill. Not bad and far cheaper than Hostess.

We can replace donuts. Who is going to replace the 18,000 jobs and probably another 10,000 jobs that Hostess supported?

They won't be buying anymore ingredients or packing or shipping anything.

I mean, everyone who worked for Hostess USED to have wages going back into the economy and taxes into the federal coffers.

This closing will be far reaching.

Just in case Hostess decided to fold, last Monday I bought 20 boxes of Twinkies at $5 a box. Total cost $100.

Just sold all 20 boxes on ebay for $2000. Total profit $1900.

Thank you Hostess!

But the issue here is still the same issue that bankrupted EVERY SINGLE union-controlled industry, and it has nothing to do with robber barons or the 1%. Basically, the problem is and always will be the fact that there simply isn't enough money to pay people to sit around and do nothing.

As long as somebody is doing something for you, you can afford to pay them. The minute someone becomes idle, whether because of work rules, or because the union lets them eff off, or because of the "it's not my job" mentality, or because some union goon thinks the company should pay him to be retired for 30 years, there is simply not enough money in the system to be able to afford this.

That's what you see know with all the upside down government pensions. And that's what unions don't seem to get.

A replacement? Easy,..ON 2, Scattered, covered, chunked, capped, diced and topped.
Beside that, I was tired of seeing fat families carrying handfuls of them to the counter anyway.

Yes,but I have got very many great deals on ebay just by looking for the ones that have no idea what they are selling and what the item is really worth.

Bob, you're totally correct and I don't know why the union workers don't catch on that the union bosses and arbitrators are (1) making huge salaries and stealing from pension funds and (2) losing work for them.

But the die hard dem union employees, many in my family, will never change their thinking.

A refinery close to me was union. Everybody showed up for work one morning in 2009 and the gates were locked, state cops on duty, the refinery was closed and had been sold. No notice.

It stood idle, except for miminal maintenance, for almost two years, then reopened, non-union. They called back the employees they wanted, if they were willing to work non-union, and most went back happily.

So that was 600 locals out of work for two years. And other businesses around here suffered or closed.

We rode by there last night and my husband was pointing out a new, shiny 'cracker' and said how much it must have cost. I just replied, "yes, and you can bet all that steel came from China." We do it to ourselves.

I am all for people being paid as much as they can get, but they also have to be realistic. The only pension you're going to have is if you put away the money yourself.

You are right Bob. I have 401k, company pension, an annuity and social security to fall back on. In the not too distant future, and some companies have started already, it will all be 401k (instead of company retirement programs), with a very meager matching contribution from the company.
