The Twinkie: Will it return as a Mexican expat? One rumored bidder for the Hostess assets “…hints at the future of Twinkies and maybe the US bakery business as a whole: Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo, the world’s largest bread baking firm, which already owns parts of Sara Lee, Entenmann’s and Thomas English Muffins.” One day, perhaps soon, Americans will be sneaking over the border to Mexico to find jobs. Forward!

So it’s going to be “Bimbo’s” Twinkies? That sounds like a Madonna concert.

As for the Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker Union…with apologies to Rocco from the “Boondock Saints”,

I will shoot myself in the f*cking head if you can bake a loaf of bread.

Grupo Bimbo’s Twinkies, Ho Hos, and Ding Dongs. Sounds like a porn title.

Thomas’ English muffins suck. Any 99c/doz store brand beats ‘em hollow.

Afraid so, they have closed some US and Canadian plants, and opened up a plant south of the border in 2007.

I would never do it!
Little Debbie and Drakes are both good alternatives, also Wal Mart has their own versions of most of those items.
People are so stupid!

It’s like Beanie Babies and Tickle Me Elmo. When you think there aren’t enough, you’ll pay anything to get them.

The BK judge is making them and the union negotiate.

sounds like the “judge” is pro-union.

Depends on if he’s making the union negotiate in good faith. The teamsters did, and wanted the bakers to do it too.

With the trucks they have to drive, I think the Teamsters should get a premium wage.

Edit: HAD to.
