Don't worry, Twinkie isn't dead, he's just been sold!
This was posted on The Everlasting GOP Stoppers Facebook page with the following commentary:
"Private equity and hedge funds bought out Hostess, ran it into the ground, and now blame the union for shutting the company down. Retirees are losing their pensions. People are losing their jobs. But not because of the greed of the workers. This is why I despised Mitt Romney, and all that he represented. They don't care about the people they are hurting. It's all about extracting profit. And you don't have to worry about not being able to get Twinkies, because they will sell the name to make even more profit. Except maybe now your Twinkie wont be made in America. Read the story at that liberal rag, Forbes." - AlTruism

6. The family appears to be serious business people. I doubt that they will mess with
well established formulas. They tried to work with Unions to buy Hostess earlier, that may bode well for the Unions now. The Mexican company already has some well established US brands, some of which produce higher end supermarket baked products.
