Smaller, larger, matters not to me. I will never buy any product made by a scab-loving, union-busting company. They can shove their tiny twinkies right up where the sun doesn't shine!

Actually, Hostess went out of business. The new company simply bought the rights to Hostess products. As for Unions (of which I am a proud member) The former Hostess union drove the company out of business through their greed and failure to negotiate. Poor union leadership cost those employees their jobs. All this did was give non-union people a bad impression of how a Union operates. Fortunately, my union has great leadership and I will never have to worry about being unemployed due to the union's actions.

bumswrap > I'll bet you buy plenty of products from non union companies and don't even know it. Ever shop at Walmart? or do you over pay top dollar on everything you buy?

Less product, less cost to produce, SAME price. Good grief, at this rate they will be the size of a tootsie roll in a few years.

Joe says: "I'm a 200+ pound Twintie that costs $141K per game!" How's that for value?

In this day and age, there is no union that is needed. The majority in union leadership are corrupt and greedy and are nothing but fundraisers for the democrat party. Non-union employers treat their employees better, pay just as well, and get rid of those who do not want to work. Unions drive up costs and protect many employees who do not work. They supported Obamacare and now say it will be impossible to pay for. Unions need to be dissolved. Trust the people, not union thugs.
