But lard and sugar whipped into a 'creme' never tasted so good, except maybe in Oreos....

Where can you find those things, anyway?

When Hostess went out of business around 2013, they disappeared from stores.  Then Hostess was re-opened under new ownership, and they're back.  You can find them in retailers like wal-mart, Target, and most grocery stores in the snack cake section alongside the Little Debbie stuff....

Still Hostess - the brand name carried clout and recognition, which they didn't want to just walk away from...

Essentially making the whole protest and threat from shutting down if they protested completely pointless since nothing changed.

Well, it was kind of a 'backfire' thing.  Hostess was orignally a union company.  The union employees kept demanding higher and higher salaries with more and more benefits, which the company couldn't give them because they weren't earning enough money to give them everything they were demanding.  So the union, doing what they usually do under such circumstances, went on strike and increased their demands even more.  The resulting litigation wound up shutting Hostess down completely and all the union employees lost their jobs.  The new owners are not union-based (at least I don't think they are), so hopefully this won't happen again.  It was all a big case of the unions killing the goose that laid the golden egg...
