Hostess Brings Back Twinkies - With A Twist


Twinkies are back! And they last longer than ever... but not forever.

The new Hostess Brands’ Twinkies -- the cream-filled yellow-sponge cake that has delighted (and dismayed) Americans for 83 years -- will now have an extended shelf life of 45 days when they return to stores on July 15, compared to 26 days previously. The shelf-life change has been in the making for years, The AP reports.
