Of course Twinkies have a future, that brand has to be worth millions. Then the factories will re-open, and rehire employees laid off (probably with preference to the non-union members). The cycle continues.
Now we have to ask, what about the Hostess Fruit pies. Every time there's a natural disaster I recommend them as emergency rations since 2 of them will feed a person for a day (500 calories/pie). Get a case and keep a family alive for a week.
