Original founder Jordan Tobins, who has been under investigation for all sorts of things, including death threats, wants to buy it back with "new partners."

Conveniently coinciding with the downfall of Twinkies, a message sent to our Twitter account, also appearing on the Arlington Patch, indicates that a first-of-its-kind, gluten-free and wheat-free bakery is about to open in East Arlington on the Cambridge line. Something Sweet Without Wheat should open on December 1 at 169 Mass Ave., in the old Barisimo space.
It looks like the Twinkie hoarding wasn't in vain as yesterday's eleventh-hour mediation talks went nowhere. Hostess is back in bankruptcy court as of this morning ironing out its liquidation plans. The company's 33 bakeries have already ceased operations, and 18,500 jobs are likely lost. A final official announcement is expected shortly. [Reuters, Earlier]
