In light of the closing of Hostess Brands, including its Wayne bakery on Demarest Drive, we here at Patch were thinking: What is your favorite Hostess, or Drakes, snack cake?
The 82-year-old company will sell its popular brands, including Drakes, Dolly Madison, which make iconic products such as Twinkies and Ding Dongs, to help pay creditors.
The company shut down operations after it failed to come to an agreement with the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco, and Grain Millers Union to resolve a labor dispute. The company filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection in May.
The 320 workers at the Wayne bakery will be out of a job effective July 3 and the facility will be sold.
