Area bakeries to sell Twinkies and other treats on Sunday
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
Beginning Sunday, November 25, at select Bakery Outlet stores, Hostess Brands will be offering fresh single-serve packs of snack cakes, including Twinkies, CupCakes and a variety of Dolly Madison treats, for $0.50 each while supplies last.
The maker of Twinkies and Ding Dongs failed to reach an agreement with its second-biggest union earlier this week. Renewed talks between Hostess and The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union came after the company declared last week that it would move to wind down its business and start selling off its assets in bankruptcy court.
The company cited a crippling strike that was started on Nov. 9 by the union, which represents 30 percent of Hostess workers. After making its case to liquidate on Monday, the bankruptcy court judge noted that the two sides hadn't yet tried resolving their differences through private mediation.
Those last-minute talks failed, and as a result, Hostess plans to continue with bankruptcy. A Hostess spokesman says iconic snacks, like Twinkies and Ho-Hos, will either be taken by new owners or disappear all together.
Outlet locations will be open beginning at 9 a.m. and will remain open during normal business hours until all products are sold out. Below is list of participating Bakery Outlet locations in the Central Florida area:
