Craving a Ho Ho? Get ready to shell out some serious dough for the novelty treats made by the soon-to-be-defunct Hostess company. Entrepreneurs are buying boxes by the dozens and reselling the normally cheap goods on Ebay and Craigslist for hundreds, and even thousands, of dollars. Shockingly, fans may be making the best investment by purchasing online. Hostess is planning to sell its brands at auction, so it’s possible the beloved snacks will continue to be made and sold by another brand.
