Sugar rush: Hostess' demise sparks Twinkie online frenzy
As of midday Friday, nearly 900 items for sale on eBay were Twinkie-related, including single-size snacks, unsealed boxes and even lunchboxes, baseball cards and magnets. One seller in North Carolina even set a price of $5,000 for a single Twinkie.
Another seller in Texas is asking an eye-popping $250,000 for one box of 10 Twinkies.
"Item will be insured and picked up locally after payment in full," the listing reads. "This is a great collectors [sic] item that can be passed down to family members and will only gain in value!"
