It was hard to miss the news today that Hostess went out of business and that Twinkies were discontinued. In our call center at work today we had a goodbye spread of Hostess products. A last chance to indulge in some yummy goodness.
I grabbed a Ding Dong and a Zinger as they were my two favorites. My favorite way to eat a Zinger though is frozen. It brings back memories from childhood.
Will I miss these tasty treats? Not much, as I rarely indulge in them. Plus, do you really think that they will be gone forever? Someone will buy the brand name and the recipes and they will be back in production, it will only be a matter of time.
What I will miss is my bread.I have been eating Home Pride bread for a very long time. I remember switching to wheat bread when we were kids because it was healthier for us than that white bread. This is the brand that we switched to. Of course through the years I have occasionally tried a store brand for awhile or some other type of bread, but I have always come back to the bread that I grew up on. My morning toast is on Home Pride Wheat. My tuna sandwiches, my peanut butter and jelly, smoked turkey and sharp cheddar or grilled cheese. All will have to be made with a different bread.
Maybe I will get lucky and their will be one last loaf of Home Pride on the shelf when I go shopping tomorrow so I can prolong the search for a new brand. I know that I won’t be switching to Wonder Bread or Nature’s Pride. They are Hostess brands and were discontinued also.
Will there be bread shortages until other bakeries gear up to make up the gap in bread production?
What brand of bread should I try as a replacement for my Home Pride?
How long will I have to wait for someone to start making Home Pride again?
I will miss my bread, but perhaps I will find something better :-).
