With Hostess’ final shipment coming on Friday after eighty-years of business, Twinkies are flying off the shelves and a lot of folks are feeling down. But if you can’t be without the cream-filled snack and have money to spend, just go to eBay. WBOC reports:
“The highest bid for a lunch box featuring Twinkie the Kid hit 690-dollars and a Twinkies bake set was up to 51-dollars. Lots of ebay sellers are also putting up boxes of actual Twinkies.”
On Friday and Saturday eBay and Craigslist users began to sell Twinkie products for hundreds and thousands of dollars, despite the retail price of $5 for a box.
