Mediation between Hostess and the union failed Tuesday night. And even if many of us haven’t had a Twinkie or Ding Dong since we were kids, it’s still an American institution and the fact that this American brand might disappear is unthinkable. Who hasn’t had a Hostess cupcake? The icing is the best! The fact that both sides can’t come to an agreement, and not just save 18,000 jobs, but keep something that’s uniquely American. So many other things are foreign-owned. According to Reuters, there is a scheduled hearing tomorrow. Here’s hoping Hostess figures something out.
