Exclamation Twinkies Are Back!

Quote:
Rejoice! Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and other Hostess treats will be back on shelves July 15

IRVING - Those mourning the loss of Twinkies and Ho Hos from grocery store shelves can officially dry their tears.

The buzz about Hostess' resurgence in March proved true when Irving-based Hostess announced on Monday via Facebook it would return to business.

Just 488 hours from now (and counting), the sugary confections will be back on sale, which means you can get your hands on Hostess products beginning July 15. CNN Money reports all Hostess and Dolly Madison items - that's CupCakes, Donettes, Zingers, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs, fruit pies, and mini muffins - will make the July 15 deadline. They report Sno Balls may take longer.

Hostess shut down operations last year after filing for bankruptcy, notably the second time in less than a decade.

Bankruptcy Court Judge Robert Drain forced the company to conduct private mediation with the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers International Union, which comprised roughly 30 percent of Hostess workers. After talks of ceasing production, Hostess sales spiked 31,000% in November 2012. Hostess now has "new owners and a leaner structure," according to the Associated Press, and is ready to put their sweets back on the market.

Hostess is currently collecting Vine recordings of consumer reactions and promoting them on social media with the #CakeFace hashtag.

All that is left to decide now is what you should do with that collection of R.I.P. Twinkies shirt in your closet.

That is odd, Bard, I never saw those before, I had to look Tiger Tails up, heh.

Well, the only one they said won't be available right away is the Sno-balls.

JohnnyVann wonders if I should mention that "twinkles" is also a kink term.

I think Tiger Tails were a short-lived thing, never really caught on like other products. But I LOVED them because... RASPBERRY! Then Dolly Madison created Zingers!



Even MOAR raspberry! So Hostess bought Dolly Madison and retired the Tiger Tails, IIUC.

Sno-Balls can DIAF. Only thing they're good for is making bikini cakes.



And then you throw away the Sno-Balls and eat the cake

I want my damn Funny Bones back!
I still have an unopened package that I probably won't open until I know for sure if they're ever coming back or not.
If they are, then I can munch away knowing I can get more.
If they aren't, Ill know to savor every luscious millimeter of that shit!

Status May 31, 2013: We met with the representatives of the new Drakes Cake company. The Process to go back on line will be; making of 4 items first. These items are Ring Dings, Coffee Cakes, Yodels and yes Devil Dogs. They will be available late September Early October to be delivered to your door. The new factory plants are being laid out so the Funny Bones will be made at a different facility and there will be no cross contamination of peanuts to the other Drakes Cakes Products how is that for fine processing. It will still be Kosher and vegetarian as it was. So we will be going back on line about August 15 to start to accept orders for processing. The bakery since it is starting up will only deliver product once a week. This means that if we are out of stock you will have to wait a week before we get it freshly made from the bakery and then ship to you. Remember this is the start of a new process and company that wants you to still be there customers. All ingredients have been supplied to them from the old suppliers of Drakes Cake, same firm and ingredients to keep the taste the same. We will let you know more as we hear more Have a nice rest of the summer.
