    Hostess

    GEICO was in a world of hurt when Warren began buying it...:)

    Hostess was ran into the ground by incompetent management, and that would likely preclude Berkshire from buying it... however, when it was announced that Hostess was heading back into bankruptcy, the thought crossed my mind to that it would be a great thing to have join Berkshire... but only because it would be protected.... not that it would fit Berkshire as well as some other acquisitions might.

    I think Nestle (which I don't even know if they are in the running) should consider it... or Mars. It looks, however, like it might be split into the bread division going to one buyer, and the snack cakes going to another (probably the maker of #$%$).
