Sad Saturday

The announcement came yesterday:  The demise of the DingDong, termination of the Twinkie, and the wind down of Wonder Bread.  Hostess Brands has ceased operation and declared bankruptcy.

I remember having toured the Tulsa plant with my class when I was in grade school.  The yeasty smell of the rising room was so strong, and the ovens were huge.  We received a miniature loaf of Wonder Bread as a souvenir.

What is truly sad is the loss of 180 jobs here in Tulsa and 18,500 nationwide.  I hope they are able to sell the company quickly so all those people can get back to work.
