Hey, looks like they were right, Assassin!
Only a few made the profit.

Hundreds of others are struggling to sell theirs.

Like I have said, desperate. And only idiots would spend $40 on Twinkies.

Your comment doesn't change anything.

[EDIT]
Here is a 'idiot' example for you: (a person who is re-selling.)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Twinkie-1-pa...item2a263b24e4

1 Twinkie for $350. Yup, most people who flocked the stores for these were idiots. Idiots also can get lucky sometimes. LOL!

That's what I keep telling myself. It isn't so much that what you say isn't right, but you're rude.

I wouldn't say I was rude to anyone here.

Just to the people who have nothing better to do than flock from store to store to buy Twinkies and try to re-sell them at higher prices.

Now, if you were one of them or if you are defending them... well, obviously. lol.

LOL at the people who bought twinkies online... there are two facts they neglect

1) Twinkies, as a brand, will no doubt be sold off and someone else will continue to make them

and

2) Twinkies in Canada was sold off long ago and is manufactured by Saputo. They taste and look just the same. They could easily just order them online.

Economics in 3 words;
Production
Distribution
Consumption

Production has ceased (?)
Distribution has ceased (?)
Consumption is high (?)


It does not matter what you are trading, if you perceive something to possess a certain value, no matter how outrageous that value may be, given the right conditions somebody will trade.

I am British, I don’t even know what "Twinkies" are, but I do think it’s a silly asking price for some perishable candy, I myself would never buy it.

I did LOL at the epic EBAY PAGE description for $350.00, check it out;

"Scoop up the last available single-serving Twinkies out there! I have been scrounging convenience stores high and low to lock in the final supply of these little babies. Everyone else on eBay is selling big boxes or two-serving packages of Twinkies, but these are the 1-serving packets! With the label, UPC, ingredients, Nutrition Facts, and even the logo of the infamous Baker's Union that drove the company out of business! Be ready for a trip down memory lane as you pull this little packet out and either stick it on your dresser forever to remind you of your childhood, or sink your teeth for the final time into the sweet, sticky, yummy goodness of the Twinkie. And when they're gone, they're gone! * Please note that the photo shows two, but I am only selling ONE Twinkie per auction."

but again, the point i made previously you could be in the very same situation as the people who love twinkies if something else you really liked ceased.

So really yes i think you're being rude, not to the community itself, but the self centered close mind you're having is showing nothing but rudeness.

Recently in the walking dead you said that the ''collector edition book could be worth alot of money''

You at least had the intention to do the bloody same thing, make profit out of rarity. That's taking an opportunity.


I'll give you another example, take any kickstarter project. take for instance grim dawn.
Have you looked at the kickstarter page?

One person paid 4000$ and one person paid 8000$, in your books are those people idiots? i mean for instance.. the person who paid 8k paid 266x more than what the game would actually cost at retail.
Does that make him an idiot?

Or does that make him someone who wants to yes support the project but also paid alot of money for something he loves.


so personally yes i think you're being rude, and no offence but.. yeah ...
