Hostess Brands Inc. today announced that it is winding down operations and has filed a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking permission to close its business and sell its assets, including its iconic brands and facilities. Bakery operations have been suspended at all plants.
"A lunch box featuring â€œTwinkie the Kid,â€ a cartoon cowboy character that bears a striking resemblance to the iconic yellow cake, fetched a winning bid of $690 on Friday, after Hostess said it was seeking permission from a federal bankruptcy court to close down all its bakeries."

There's gonna be an investigation into why Hostess failed. It's glaringly obvious that poor management is at the heart of the failure, but it may go beyond poor into criminal. Ugh, I can't remember who is launching the investigation and I can't find it with a quick search. But I know I read that in a news article. :/

I think it's more about the thousands of people that will lose their jobs likely because of criminal mischief by execs.
Criminals are criminals after all, regardless what the company produces.
