Meaningless to the real issue here, but the Twinkies and Hostess cakes patent's, trademarks and recipes will be bought and Twinkies will probably live on as a snack.

The union refused to adapt, and it has destroyed its source of revenue. The intellectual properties (brands, recipes, etc.,) can be sold, and will end up being produced outside of the US. Don't blame Hostess for outsourcing those jobs. The union did it to themselves.

I still can't figure out why the gubmint daddy didn't save these poor union folks. Oh wait, the election is over. And I imagine Michele was against it too.Be Not Afraid.

Wonder bread (and similar low cost white breads) are made by a continuous mix process which is basically not a dough process but a mixture of a "sponge" (bleached white flour, water, yeast, sugar, shortening and various chemicals) mixed with more bleached white flour that plops into the pans with the consistency of McDonald's milkshake.
Like sausage and hot dogs, if you have ever seen it made, you would never want to eat it again.
My brother worked at the Hostess (Wagner) Bakery in Detroit (now the sight of the Motor City Casino) as a supervisor for a few years in the late 70's and I remember class trips to the bakery when I was in grade school in the area.
