Twinkie the Kid Rides Again!
|

twinkieLate last year Twinkie lovers were stunned to learn their beloved snack would no longer be available and quickly bought up every last box we had on the shelf. We are happy to announce that the empty space will once again be filled with your favorite Hostess snack cakes. Not only are Twinkies coming back but so are Ho Hos, Cupcakes, chocolate donettes, and powdered sugar donettes. Our orders have been placed and we are expecting these treats to arrive in stores on July 15.

While the Twinkie recipe has remained the same, the shelf life has been increased. I know, everyone laughs that Twinkies will last forever but in reality they were guaranteed fresh for 26 days, you will now have 45 days to eat them at their peak flavor! The CupCakes did get a makeover; the company is now using dark cocoa instead of milk chocolate to give them a richer, darker appearance.

The new Hostess is also promising some surprising new flavors and textures and will even be testing some “healthier” options like gluten-free, added fiber, low sugar and low sodium. No word yet on the return of Ding Dongs, Suzy Q’s, Sno-Balls, or pies. Mark your calendar for July 15 and shop for a treat you thought was gone forever!
