   Twinkies snack cakes may be back on store shelves next month, but the bakery jobs that left St. Louis when Hostess closed up shop here aren't coming back.  

   Metropoulos & Company, and Apollo Global Management bought Hostess cakes earlier this year for $410 million.  Both companies are known for buying troubled brands and then selling them for a profit.  

   Since the sale, Hostess headquarters have been moved from Texas to Kansas City, Missouri and production has been consolidated from 11 bakery plants to four.  The plant in St. Louis was eliminated.

Lousiana, MO bakery makes millionth doughnut

LOUISIANA, Mo. (AP) - Though just in business since 2006, a small doughnut shop in northeast Missouri has already topped the one million sold mark.

The Quincy (Ill.) Herald-Whig reports that Daybreak Donuts and Diner in Louisiana, Mo., recently reached the milestone. Owner Shaun Ross knows because he keeps detailed records on how many doughnuts he cuts each day on a coffee-stained spiral notebook.

When the millionth doughnut rolled around last month, it only made sense that frequent customer Kevin Tarpein be the recipient. Because Tarpein wasn't in that day due to a medical procedure, the staff delivered the chocolate-iced long john to him.
