    Hello BHW,


    I make my main living on eBay and noticed something pretty interesting a few days ago. For one anytime a company closes its door you need to think about the product gap in the market and how the consumer will respond.


    This is the Twinkies method...I know it sounds like a joke but it is real. Basically I have been selling boxes of Twinkies for
    50 per piece and buying the from dollar store shops. The profit is massive and I am clearing out shelves of Twinkies.


    So if you are a New to eBay and need a start then I would pay a visit to the nearest store with
    Twinkies left. This method is like smoke in air and will not last long since the supply will run out. However for now it is a good way to get some cash in your pocket and a feel for eBay. .


    This is also a good lesson to start doing more market research. If a company is closing up take action and do something about it

    I am doing this on eBay so I know you all can twist this and make some cash.


    That's all and good luck peddling those sugary snacks.
    Mike

    I actually looked into trying this today, I wen to multiple stores and they were all sold out.

    I guess I went out a little too late.

    Good method if you can get your hands on some twinkles.

    Very good method, I went the day closed and only for a few items in my town...

    But if you search one eBay there's a bunch that has already sold between $1500. to 10k...

    I wonder how many people have bought out crates of boxes of these to keep their 'fix' alive. I heard they have a decent shelf life.

    I also love the fact that no matter the situation there's always someone out there, like our OP here, who's able to make a buck or two out of it. ;)

    Make sure you dump your supply fast. Eventually the Twinkies brand will be bought by someone else and that company will reintroduce the Twinkies brand.

    Thank you. Yeah Liquidation works but does not last long.

    Yeah this will not last long for sure :)

    Haha good idea. I will reserve some as collectors Twinkies.

    Exactly, Luckily I found quite a few boxes locally :)

    Indeed, Thank you for the reply. :)

    Yeah I heard Twinkies can last 6 years. Anyone else hear something like this?

    Great! Hope you have success in it.

    Possibly so :)

    Thanks all for the replies.
