'Twinkie King' wraps up sweet career
Joe "The Twinkie King" Traxler is retiring Thursday after 50 years of making Twinkies in Seattle. He liked his job and his Twinkies and will be sorely missed. "Even the sourpusses have only good things to say about Joe," said Mark Silva, plant manager of the Hostess Cake Bakery.
