Twinkies are Coming Back to Stores July 15th
It's official! The Twinkie should be back on store shelves in the middle of next month, but will they be the same?
Last year, Hostess went bankrupt and put a lot of employees out of work. The company, Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo, picked up the rights to make Twinkies and other Hostess snack cakes for $410 million. It's the same company that owns Pabst Blue Ribbon. Maybe we'll have Twinkie flavored beer? PBR flavored Twinkies? I hope not.
There has also been a lot of talk on if they'll stay the same. They probably will, although one report says that CupCakes are now using a dark cocoa instead of milk chocolate. I'm not a dark chocolate fan, but I'll give'em a shot.
No word on the Twinkie itself, yet, but the new owners did say they may have new flavors as well as textures. Maybe a crunchy Twinkie? We'll have to wait and see.
I do know that if they were to bring back the TMNT pudding pie, I'd be a happy snacker!
