Twinkies are coming back

Twinkies to be back on store shelves in July



Stand down Twinkies hoarders, you can start eating your secret stash.

Twinkies will hit store shelves nationally by late July, Michael Cramer, executive vice president of Hostess Brands LLC told NBC News on Thursday. "We expect to be making and selling in July," he said. "Probably the later half of the month before the product hits the stores."

All of the classic Hostess snack brands will return, some making their return in August and September. Hostess Donettes and some of the snack cakes will be among the first to return. And "Twinkies for sure," Cramer said.

1. Any truth to the rumor that they will now be made from Tofu with a cottage cheese filling

to fit in with the demands of an increasingly health-conscious America?

7. Much lower wages and benefits too.

So they could liquidate the business and come back without a union, that I suspect could be part of the whole reason Hostess took bankruptcy

5. I LOVE Twinkies, but I love labor unions more

so I won't be buying a single Hostess snack until they allow the unions to return. NO American should support this corporate coup of one of America's beloved brands. Every Hostess food bought hereafter is a sign of approval of how greedy corporations can get away with disrespecting hard-working Americans in the corporate quest of making a slave nation out of the United States.

I'll pass.
