Default Hostess is no more...

As the title reads...

I can't believe people were flocking to the stores and buying the twinkies in order to re-sell them at higher prices.

Losers. lol. Well, whoever buys them at a outrageous price is the biggest loser.

I would be more understanding...

If let's say Apple wen't out of business and people were flocking to the stores and buying iPods to re-sell them at a higher value later. (Or the Apple earphones, w/e.)

We are talking about what used to be cheap junkfood though. It just seems soo desperate. lol.

So, were you one of those people who drove from store to store to buy the Twinkies and re-sell them on Ebay for $20+ per box?

no but let's make a diffrent example.. if you knew, for instance, Ubisoft was about to close it's doors, and that AC3 bids would go insanely high because they couldnt produce enough.

If you had the chance to get copies, wouldnt you be tempted to buy more and sell them off or buy the game at higher price because it's never going to be available again?

My bet? yes you would, so would i.
Why is it any diffrent for food?

that's being close minded

The difference = junk food is junk.

Let's say Coca-Cola closed down and people were re-selling cans individually for $20.

Now, you would have to be a tard to spend that much for 1 can. The world has not ended. The Twinkies are not worth $20+. Not being able to drink Coca-Cola won't kill you. There are similar brands to Coca-Cola and Hostess out there.

If they were just re-selling Hostess merchandise - that's another story.
Like I have said: desperate.
