Only a few short hours after Hostess announced its closing, the panic began to set in. With one of the nation’s largest providers of freshly baked breads and sweet treats shutting its doors for good, people began to wonder: what will happen to our beloved Twinkies?

The icing-filled treat, which has been a lunchbox staple since its birth in 1930, was one of Hostess’ most popular items, with demand so high last year that close to 500 million Twinkies were produced. Its popularity reaches far beyond the American pantry, with appearances in courtrooms, movies, and television shows on its résumé. While many claim that Twinkies will continue to live on despite Hostess' closing (there’s been talk of the brand being bought out by another company), many still fear that they’ll never be the same again.
