WWE Star

MASSIVE Snack Spree

Before Hostess Closure

11/17/2012 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1116-David-Otunga-Hostess
WWE star David Otunga isn't taking any chances now that Hostess has announced it's closing up shop --  stocking up on EVERY POSSIBLE HOSTESS SNACK EVER on Friday -- and TMZ has the heart-stopping picture to prove it.

Otunga -- who's ironically engaged to Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson -- tells TMZ he was devastated by the news Friday that Hostess is going out of business ... so he scrambled to a Hostess outlet in Chicago to salvage whatever snacks he could.

But he was too late -- the entire outlet was empty -- so Otunga ran to his local supermarket instead, where he managed to squirrel away a shopping cart filled with roughly 80,000 calories.

Otunga tells us, "I don't want my son to go without Twinkies."

The horror.

I love Twinkies and Snoballs. Gonna miss them! Hostess and Wonder bread companies have been run badly for several years. That is why they were sold about 4 years ago. As bad as it was it got worse -- management grabbing a lot of money, closing plants, not selling various products etc. Now they want to blame a recent baker's strike for the demise. Don't believe it. Why can't workers
have a
raise? The big boys got several. I don't work there. I just wanted to point this out.

Some people don't think, they just act. Why would anybody go around buying all the hostess products from grocery stores when these products will expire in a a couple of weeks and won't be fit to eat too much longer after that.

They saved the car companies, Hostess can be saved. It's an American institution. Did you know Hostess can't deliver the bread and cupcakes on the same trucks to your local supermarkets, due to different unions. No wonder this company is having profit problems.
