Lenexa, KS (KCTV/CNN) - Huge crowds flooded Hostess outlets Monday, hoping to stock up on some beloved treats.

People waited for hours for this store in Lenexa, Kansas to open.

Within 15 minutes, all the Twinkies were gone.

Twinkies, Ho Hos and Wonder Bread are up for sale now that a bankruptcy judge has cleared the way for the parent company wind down operations.

A last-ditch effort to end a strike with Hostess' bakers union failed last week.

That prompted people across the U.S. to scramble for whatever Hostess treats were left.

Businesses reported selling out of Twinkies within hours, and the spongy yellow cakes showed up for sale online for hundreds of dollars.
