Comment: Twinkie died because it was killing people.

Twinkie died because it was killing people.

When your product is so full of crap and has absolutely NO healthful quailities or benefits, eventually you kill yourself.

People are getting more savvy about nutrition and that business model simply doesn't work anymore.

Even schools are not allowing them in anymore.

It's not about the workers, the unions or even the management - it's a flawed product which killed their business.

The free market is speaking and no amount of papering over it will change anything. Only a different business model (creating a more desireable product) can save them.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
