Twinkies Are Back!
In the words of Hostess themselves, "You asked for it America. And now, the greatest snacks the world has ever known are back on shelves." We were said to hear they would go, lets get excited they are back!!
Hostess has brought back on of America's favorite sweet treats, the Twinkie. It returned to us today in one of the biggest home comings to happen in a long time.
Want to have your next taste of the treat we almost lost forever? Lucky for you, hostess has installed a store locater for all of the Twinkie fans in the world to find where they can buy the snack that almost disappeared.
When you get your box of Twinkies, tere will be a couple of differences from the Twinkie we all fell in love with. Due to changes in the production style of Hostess, the Twinkie got tinkered with a bit. Candace Choi of USA Today explains, "The new boxes hitting shelves list the cakes as having 270 calories and a weight of 77 grams for two cakes, or 135 calories and 38.5 grams for one cake."
Though some got a special early release from Walmart, most of us are enjoying our long friend for the first time again today. How is everyone celebrating?
What are you doing? Are you still reading this? STOP. Go. Get some Twinkies!!
