Young SM East grads positioning to acquire Twinkie brand

Much like two spongy yellow cakes wrapped tightly together under a thin film of plastic, SM East graduates Austin and Zach Hurst look a lot alike.

They’re twins, in fact.

And if their longshot bid goes according to plan, the 26-year-olds will become purveyors of the Twinkie brand. The Twinkie Twins, you might call them.

The tech savvy and entrepreneurial duo have founded a number of tech companies, and have mustered enough moxie to earn a seat at the table in the bidding process for bankrupt Hostess Brands’ assets.

How serious a bid? Well…the Wall Street Journal did a story on them Tuesday.

Attention, Hursts: I want a Columbia-blue cream filled option if you guys win.
