Sad for the job loss, but frankly annoyed over it being the biggest news ever when the other biggest news ever is the obesity issues we face over eating, to be direct, stuff like twinkies! Good riddance.

I'm not anti-junk food in any way. I believe it's not Twinkies making people fat, it's people eating a whole box of Twinkies in one sitting. A little self control and moderation and a Twinkie now and then is far from evil or the root of obesity. That said, it makes me sad to see them close. I haven't had a darn Twinkie since college because it really never crossed my mind and now it's all I can think about. I would pretty much fight someone for one just because I know I can't have one.
I will miss the chocolate donuts... they were DS's fav... and the fruit pies. BUT I am sure another company will buy the patents and we wil still be able to get them. It is sad for the loss of jobs. I looked on ebay last night and saw a single box of twinkies for 455$ and it had 30-some bidders! People are crazy!
