Twinkies Being Sold Online Like Rare Commodities
Hoarders are selling them, along with Ding Dongs, Ho Hos and Zingers, on eBay and Craigslist.
Greg Edmonds of Sherman, Texas is among those who believe Twinkies are worth more now that Hostess Brands Inc. has closed its bakeries. He lost his job as a sales representative eight months ago, so he is hoping to make some money feeding the appetites of Twinkie fans and connoisseurs
After spending a couple hours driving around to stores Friday, Edmonds wound up with 16 boxes of Twinkies and Ding Dongs. He started selling them Saturday on eBay, advertising three boxes for a hefty price of $300.
All may not be lost, as Hostess is selling its assets at auction, and some buyer may emerge.
