At IGA's Supermarket in Eureka, Twinkies lovers have raided shelves out of fearing this may be their last chance at the tasty treat. But according to store manager, Rob Bryant, the store faces a bigger issue.
Nearly sixty percent of the store's bread products were made by Hostess-Butternut, including IGA's private bread brand. Popular Hostess Brands breads include Wonder, Nature's Pride, Merita, Home Pride, Butternut and Millbrook brands.
Bryant said the company saw this coming, and is trying to find another bread company to fill the need.
"We didn't expect it to happen this soon, but we knew it was a possibility it was in the works. So we had already been talking to bread companies. So hopefully, we have a commitment to fulfill our butternut and everything," he said.
The store manager said he expects to have enough bread to last through the weekend.
