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!
