I worked at Hostess Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Top selling product, both bread and cake. People always wanted to buy the product, often times it was difficult to keep stores properly stocked because of the popularity of the product.

Cons

When a company goes broke selling a popular item like twinkies and cupcakes, something is very wrong. Poor management
