Arianwen, it's been years since I have had a twinkie, but they are a vanilla cake that has a white ceamy filling. They really don't have much flavor other than being sweet. I'm not nostalgic about twinkies.
Doddlebug, that is a big paycut; I probably wouldn't have voted for it either If I was working for them. But they probably were going to have to cut back on operations anyway.
Maybe I mis-spoke about the corporate greed thing. I just read on Bloomberg that the company still wanted to pay management bonuses while letting other jobs go. I was just speaking from my own experience as working for a food products manufacturer. That wouldn't have flown for the company I work at. There isn't alot of profit margin for food manufacturers compared to, say clothing or industrial goods.
A bankruptcy affects more than the people working for the company and the investors. Lots of suppliers who sold them ingredients to make their products won't get paid either. (That's the side I see).
