Hostess is serving up lies

Turns out the truth is less sweet than the myth they tried to serve the media. 
Looks like the Execs were taking more than a baker's dozen, cash wise, and thought they could give FOX newzzz types a cake walk, blaming the workers for being greedy "takers", with their hands in the cookie jar, or Ho Ho box , if you will. 
Now they are in a Twinkie mediation, trying to pull the business of mysterious confections out of the bankruptcy fire/oven. 
I seriously doubt anyone thought there was nutritional value in the Hostess product line,  but the reason they have such a long shelf life is some of the chemical magic in the ingredients. 
Mmmmmm polysorbate 60, Trans fats & high fructose corn syrup.

Much ado about this:
