Did you know that Twinkies have returned and are back?
I wasn't aware that Hostess Twinkies were back on the market until today when I was strolling through WalMart. They are back in full force complete with a cutout Minion costume so that you can dress up and create your very own Twinkie Minion. Cool Huh? They also come in Banana flavor as well. I snapped this photo as I was cruising down the road at around 70mph. Not bad huh? Happy New Year, and with the New Year comes Hostess Twinkies that everyone can enjoy once again!
I did hear that they went away. Now that they are back I wonder if there was a giant backlash of customers complaining that they went away. I never ate them -- I always preferred the chocolate ho-hos or those chocolate cupcakes with the white filling inside.
Yes I had, TheHoleStory. I think some mogul guy bought the company after it "died" and revived it again. I believe it was late last year or maybe this year. I never believed the hype, thought it was a brilliant publicity stunt to get a buyer, and it worked. It is good to have a beloved old school product survive this economy.
Yes, I saw them at Walmart this week. I know many who are thrilled to see them once again on the shelf. I'm holding way back on them, but good to see that someone bought the company out to save the treat and provide work for others.
