Since Hostess' shutdown, Twinkies have become a valuable commodity. Despite all the "lifespan of a million years" jokes, the snack cake actually has a shelf life of only about 28 days, according to a company spokesperson, which is making the dwindling supplies of the popular snack cake in high demand. A box of 10 cakes is currently selling for $12.75 on Amazon.com, about three times more than the suggested retail price of the cream-filled treats.
But with all this talk about the loss of Twinkies, we've all forgotten the other childhood favorites that have also been lost in bakeries' closure. Devil Dogs, Sno-Balls, HoHo's, Swiss Rolls, and Ding Dongs are all fellow casualties -- yet we don't much about those cakes because of the loud lament for the Twinkie.
