Will Beast spend his days evermore pining for a Twinkie?

Someone is going to buy the rights to Hostess products or at the very least the Twinkie.

It'll probably be Drake's.

A piece of American food-history like the Twinkie won't just disappear over night. Someone will make an attempt to preserve it. Even if Disney has to buy it, just so they can have Hank enjoy them.

Though this post confused me at first being I didn't realize he was in need for Twinkie-fixes. I knew he liked snackie-cake type things and I remember the BAMFS taking his treats in W&tXM a few issues ago, but I didn't realize he had a specific brand he was fond of. Good to know.

We got Twinkies in South Africa, but it's renamed Tinkies. Not sure who bought the rights to the recipe to sell it in over here, but yeah. That beautiful little piece of beastly delight will never disappear. However I would actually love it if they added a little reaction from Hank in the comic books. That would be funny.

Or, y'know PABST BLUE RIBBON BEER could pick up the recipe...

I seriously doubt this is the end of the Twinkie. I'm thinking this is more of a ploy by Hostess to put the strikers in a bad light. Hostess has gone bankrupt before.

Also, yus, Beast and Twinkies are canon! That's why this made us LOL in chat and why I've always reffed Hank and Twinkies.
Beast enjoys Twinkies. Evidence can be found in X-Men #73, where Beast's list of New Year's Resolutions revealed that one of his resolutions was to "Eat fewer Twinkies"
