Kids across the country grew up on Twinkies, but it looks like soon they'll go the way of dinosaurs and Punky Brewster, becoming a thing of the past. Hostess announced that after 82 years it will shut its doors, laying off 18,500 people just before the holidays. Soften the blow of this loss of an American favorite with one of these Twinkie gifts.


Hand-Stitched Felt Twinkies Some day this may be the only way you can share a Twinkie with your grandchild. When the real Twinkies are long gone, you'll still have this felt one to hold on to. The handmade set comes with one whole cake and one bitten Twinkie for $18 on Etsy.com.


Twinkie Cake Costume
Halloween may be over, but surely there are other occasions when a Twinkie costume comes in handy. Take on the look of this scrumptious snack cake for just $34.95, available at costumeparty.com.


The Twinkies Cookbook
The Hostess company created The Twinkies Cookbook back in 2006 to mark the 75th anniversary of the delicious treat. You can still pick up a copy of this fun book for $9.06 on Amazon.com.


Cream Canoe Pan
When the Twinkies have all been bought up you can try to create your own with the help of the Norpro Cream Canoe Pan. It's $19.73 at Casa.com and comes with a bonus decorating set.


Twinkie Baby Onesie
Today's babies may never get to taste a Twinkie, but this cute onesie will keep the snack cake's memory alive. It says "I'm jonesin' for a Twinkie." The organic body suit is $20 at Cafepress.com.
