Twinkies return to store shelves early

wgntv-twinkies-may-survive-hostess-shutdown-20121119Twinkies are making an early comeback.

While the spongy cream-filled snack cakes, formerly made by Hostess, were scheduled to return to stores shelves under new ownership on July 15th, select stores got an early shipment.

Wal-Mart says it started selling Twinkies nationwide Friday, and hopes to have them in at least 3,000 stores by Sunday.

The new slogan printed on every box reads, “The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever.”

Three companies bought the rights to various Hostess brands after that company filed for bankruptcy last year.
