Hostess is betting on a sweet comeback for Twinkies when they return to shelves next month.
The company that went bankrupt after an acrimonious fight with its unionized workers last year is back up and running under new owners and a leaner structure. It says it plans to have Twinkies and other
Hostess Brands Inc. was struggling for years before it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in early 2012. Workers blamed the troubles on years of mismanagement, as well as a failure of executives to invest in brands to keep up with changing tastes.

I really enjoyed that movie. Woody Harrelson was great in it despite being a liberal weenie.
Yeah, one of his better performances, especially with Bill Murray.
Rating the zombie kills was hilarious.
I never noticed that they were gone. Who eats those things anyway?
Deep fried Twinkie party, my house! Soooo glad they are coming back.

Excellent news! I wonder how long until Mikey Doomberg tries to ban them in New York.

They are sure to taste better without the union stain on them.
Thank the Lord. While everything else that is “Americana’’ falls away, Twinkies are a cultural icon. Why, the ingredients in them are delivered to the Hostess bakery in railroad tank cars! So you KNOW it’s good!
DEATH TO TWINKIE HATERS!!!
Damn, there went my diet.
but, I WANT MY DRAKES CAKES!!!!!!
Who eats ‘em? That’s not the point man, Twinkies are a state of mind, dude. It’s like if you have to explain Twinkies man it’s like next you’ll have to explain catching lighting bugs. It just IS!
Leaner Twinkies? Say it ain’t so!
Aw jeez, always a spoil sport. :-)
“...delivered to the Hostess bakery in railroad tank cars...”

I wish they’d put banana cream filling instead of the vanilla.
“You better watch out
you better not diet
you just know you

Twinkies® is coming to town”.
The original was banana creme.
