"We really don't buy that stuff a lot. My daughter is eating her first twinkie right now. I thought if they're gonna close we might as well give her the experience so she can have it."

"I don't really eat a whole lot of that anyway. It just seems to be a trend in business these days."

"That sucks hostess is my favorite cupcake.my favorite hostess? I like the cupcakes and i like the lemon pies."

The company says it has cancelled all orders and any shipment in transit will be returned to shippers.

Hostess plans to sell the popular brands.
