Twinkies Available This Summer!

by Kristen Flowers

One more reason to look forward to summer- Hostess says we can expect Twinkies to be back on store shelves by July.  

The American public was devastated when Hostess plants were shut down late last year after a union battle. Since a pair of hedge funds purchased many of the most recognizable Hostess brands, forming Hostess Brands LLC, popular products like Ding Dongs and Hostess Cup Cakes (as well as Twinkies, of course) will soon be available again.  

Some of the brand’s other lines, like Wonder Bread, were bought up by competing companies Flower Foods and Grupo Bimbo, both of which have their own Twinkie-like products.
