What will hungry computer geeks eat late at night now? Broccoli, I think NOT!!!!! I would suggest buying shares in Cheetos, after this news and the recent legalization of certain substances. And I had no idea when I was buying Wonder Bread last night, that it might be the last time.

In all seriousness though, its sad to see such an icon go. Though I'm sure they will be sold to another company and return.

I'll miss the chocolate cupcakes.

Mt.Dew is still there, though. Think I'll go have one now...

Yes the jobs will be the most missed, especially by those workers that were not striking. To be honest I can't remember the last time I actually had any of their snack foods. I did buy a loaf of Wonder Bread, the night before the announcement. It just happened to be on sale.

Perhaps not after all. It seems like this may have been part of the negotiating tactics. If successful, we may well see more of these in the future.

Can you believe folks are selling "twinkys" on ebay for unheard of amounts. Sad ,yes. But still these things happen.

It looks like the bankruptcy judge has told all parties to try and reach an agreement again, to save the jobs. They are meeting tomorrow (Tuesday 11/20). I guess we will see.
