Market for Twinkies Grows on eBay (Mashable)

While some are mourning the seeming demise of Twinkies, “America’s favorite golden-hued snack food,” others are glimpsing a chance to make a quick buck, Mashable reports.

A Twinkies market is emerging on eBay. But “if you want a piece of air-puffed, sugar-soaked, corn-fed American history … it is going to cost you,” Mashable observes.

Here’s what’s for sale so far: For $89.95, three boxes of SEALED Box of Hostess Chocodiles 3×10 Chocolate Twinkies; for $99.99, four boxes of SEALED Box of Hostess Chocodiles 4×10 Chocolate Twinkies; for a starting bid of $500, one Box of Twinkies, unopened; for a starting bid of $10, and a price of $595, a box of 10, opened and half-eaten; and for a starting bid of $5,000, a single Twinkie.
