Supermarkets Sold Out of Twinkies

Since Friday’s announcement that Twinkie maker Hostess Brands Inc. would close its doors after years of rising labor costs and the changing tastes of Americans, Myrtle Beach area residents have flooded supermarkets hoping for one last taste of the snack cake jokesters said would outlive humanity.
