The news of Hostess planning to go out of business has apparently sent the value of twinkies to an all-time high.

A seller in Maryland listed a box of Twinkies for $500 on eBay Friday, offering free shipping to a potential buyer. Depending on the location, a box normally sells for around $3.

Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of the famous American snack, said Friday it is forced to lay off 18,500 employees after the company has struggled with rising costs and the country's movement towards healthier snacks.
