One of the best things our generation has done is turn everything into some kind of pocalypse, which is really fun. So naturally I’m calling the bankruptcy of Hostess, Hostesspocalypse. I also liked Twinkiepocalypse, but that left out all of the other delicious snacks that Hostess has to offer. Like Cupcakes. And Ding Dongs. And Ho Ho’s. OH THE HORROR!
I actually am pretty upset about this. I don’t believe in calories so obviously the shut down of one of the biggest suppliers of processed desserts is just. I can’t. So let’s talk about how we can get through this together.
1. Stock up on everything: buy as many boxes of Twinkies, Cupcakes, Donettes, Ding Dongs, Ho Ho’s, and other Hostess products that you can get your hands on. They may have expiration dates, but these things will last forever.
2. Cry a little: let it out. It’s okay to be emotional. You just stocked up on sweets so you can eat your feelings.
4. Eat stuff: drunchies happen. This is all part of the mourning cycle so just accept it.
5. When you run out of supply: make your own Twinkies.
What are you doing to survive Hostesspocalypse?
