Mmmmm... Little Debbie's...

On a related note, it would appear that Yankee ingenuity strikes again:

Crimpettes are better than Twinkies.

Unfortunately, they are not available all over the US...

The Twinkies were only good when they had the original banana creme filling, but the Ding Dong were always the best - especially when frozen. I'll miss them soblue

That's funny I was just reading that and came to post a link to a report on it from CNN.com

Glad someone is thinking of jumping in and trying to fix problems. I would hate to see such a classic icon disappear.

The thing that bumms me out more then the snack foods (because I'm a little debbie fan) is (I learned from another chit chat post) they make/made the "beefsteak" rye breads. That is a product I actually eat that they make.

Another article reports that bankruptcy Judge Rob. Drain (not kidding!) has, for now, refused permission for the corporation to liquidate and has asked all parties to go into mediation:
