    1 twinkies already sold @ $60
    Shit is about to get real

    Btw, twinkies don't last forever.
    They last for about 25 days.

    Think you can freeze them and sell them in 5 years?

    I couldn't find a single Twinkie in town but I left Wally World with a cart full of other Hostess products. I'm trying to list with a strategy in mind. Seems ALL the bids are going to the 24 hour auctions. That's how I plan to list all of them. There is a company who has been looking at buying Hostess for about a year now. Even if they just buy the branding, it would probably slow the rush on Twinkies.

    old nintendo games especially pokemon sell for hundreds of dollars on ebay if in mint condition. I remember considering selling a bunch of used ones as new and making a fucking fortune.

    Do stores not carry them anymore? I'm sure they still have them at the 99 cent store or something.

    Hostess closed up shop this week. They made Twinkies, Zingers, DingDongs and others. I tried Wal Mart, Dollar General and a few convenience stores here in central Texas. NOBODY has Twinkies. More than one store told me that someone had come in earlier and bought their entire stock of Twinkies.

    Why are you people buying store's entire stock and listing it on Ebay for 60$? And who the hell is buying the twinkies for such a price?

    I just looked around Ebay and it seems a lot of people are selling them for crazy high prices... So people are thinking about collecting them as Valuable Items that you can't get your hands on?

    I thought people only collected stamps, coins, banknotes, TV Games and stuff like that, but food? Humanity never seizes to amaze me :)

    Probably fat people who need to have their daily Twinkie fix.
