Twinkies Set for Comeback in July
Twinkie lovers unite. The creamy filled snack cakes are returning to store shelves next month and Hostess now under new ownership, is expecting a blockbuster return when Twinkies and other sugary treats return to stores.
The company that went bankrupt after an acrimonious fight with its unionized workers last year is back up and running under new owners and a leaner structure. It says it plans to have Twinkies and other snack cakes, CupCakes and Donettes, back on shelves starting July 15.
And for those keeping track of the big return, Hostess has set up a live countdown clock on its website.
The company says the cakes will taste the same but that the boxes will now bear the tag line "The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever."
