    What can we, as consumers do to help you folks out? A boycott would just hurt the workers. I still like my Hostess cupcakes and fruit pies from time to time even though they don't seem to taste right any more.

      Given that the company was threatening bankruptcy which might allow them to void the union contracts. Now that Hostess has filed for bankruptcy... All bets are off. I just heard a rumor that the provider of the DIP (Debtor in Possession) financing is demanding that the union contracts be voided.
