The announcement from Hostess that it would be shutting down three of its bakeries (St. Louis, Seattle and Cincinnati) and then, shutting down as a company entirely, evoked a "Twinkie panic."

Now, Quartz and the Wall Street Journal report that it seems the owner of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer is nearing a deal to acquire the Twinkie brand, along with those of other Hostess snacks.

Whether you decide to enjoy the two items together is up to you.
