Popular Food and Grocery Brand Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

A well-known brand with over 100 years of history is at risk of disappearing from your favorite grocery store.

Just because a product line has been around a long time and has high name recognition does not mean it will be around forever.

That’s a lesson consumers learned in 2012 when Hostess filed for bankruptcy and ceased operations. In seemingly a few days, iconic products like Twinkies, Fruit Pies, and Hostess Cupcakes disappeared from store shelves.

They were eventually brought back a few years later as a new company picked up the company’s assets. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes, when a popular retail brand goes bankrupt, that’s the end, and even storied names with long histories have gone away and stayed gone.
