MSNBC Anchor Knocks Hostess For Giving Workers Take-Home Snacks
MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle worried that Hostess providing free snacks to its workers could “end up jacking up healthcare costs.”
Hostess Brands Inc. announced Thursday that they would give workers $1250 bonuses and free weekly take-home snacks as a result of the Tax Cuts And Jobs Act. (RELATED: Hostess Offers Best Tax Reform Bonus Yet — If You Like Twinkies)
Apparently unwilling to admit that the Hostess bonus is another tax reform success story, Ruhle pointed out on Twitter that eating too many Hostess snacks can have a negative effect on one’s health.
“The free take-home snacks could end up jacking up healthcare costs,” Ruhle wrote. “Unlimited twinkies do not do a body good.”

Luckily, employees don’t have to worry too much about their waistlines, as the snacks are not unlimited. The company will create a “multi-pack” of various Hostess snacks, and employees can take home one multi-pack each week.
