Rejoice! Twinkies Are Returning!
If you, like us, mourned the death of our favorite creamy-in-the-middle-cakey-on-the-outside snack food, the Hostess Twinkie, well, we've got some great news.
Twinkies are back! And hopefully better than ever!
After going bankrupt last year, Hostess has announced it's returning, and will be stocking the shelves with Twinkies again as early as July 15.
Sure, we may love a delicious Cake Boss cake, but there's still a special place in our heart for the elementary school lunch box treat.
“A lot of impostor products have come to the market while Hostess has been off the shelves,” Daren Metropoulos, head of the investment firm Metropoulos & Co., which now co-owns Hostess. Hostess is hoping that brand loyalty will lure a lot of consumers back. That, and the famously low price. A box of ten Twinkies will continue to cost just $3.99.
