Self inflicted wounds...
sfbayguy saidI think part of the problem is that there is so much competition out there. There are all sorts of healthier pre-packaged foods AND all sorts of better quality and better tasting unhealthy pre-packaged foods. Hostess needs to understand that the world of only crappy white bread and crappy sponge cakes is over. If I'm going to eat all that fat and calories, it better be worth it and taste good!
meninlove saidSounds like the inventory list of a chemist's lab.
Lol, and in ten years the company still hasn't figured out that its products are bad for you and failed to seriously branch out into healthier alternatives (like less crap in their products).
Self inflicted on both sides.

musclefetish1 saidAs much as it pains me to agree with this traitorous, hypocritical, Gay republican OP, "self-inflicted wounds" is absolutely correct.
They, the unions, were told by management that this would happen if they didn't come to an agreement (or capitulate, if you will), that this would happen. The workers who are members of the union are in charge of the union. They were given a deadline. Plain and simple.
This is a perfect example of why unions are terrible for business and the economy. They had their time and place...IN THE PAST when they actually stood for the safety and health of the members.
Other than the loss of many people's livelihoods, (which is terrible), I am actually glad to see this happen.
This slop they make is garbage. Who eats this trash other than the fat slobs of society?
Maybe now that this trash will be coming off the market, it will strike a chord with the fools that stuff their fat mouths with this garbage, and get them on a path of eating healthier
Just go on line and read the fattening crap and the chemicals that goes into to making some of these things. It is scary!
