Eat Your First Or Last Hostess Twinkie at Empire's Comics Vault

When we hear the sad, sad news -- Hostess is going out of business and there will be no more Twinkies in the world. -- Ben ran out and bought up all the boxes of Twinkies off the shelves of our local Smart & Final. What a Twinkie-loving man!

Other customers watching him greedily grab up all the Twinkies made comments, like,
"Hedging your bets?" and "I guess you want to make sure you don't run out of Twinkies!"

Embarrassed, he offered the line, "We're throwing a party!" And, we kind of, sort of, are!

So, to mourn the loss of the Twinkie, while supplies last...

Get 1 Goodbye Twinkie With Each Comic Book Purchase at Empire's Comics Vault!

As it was, Hostess produced 500 Million Twinkies each year -- that's an average of 1,369,863 Twinkies per day.
