Twinkies: "The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever"
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- It's the return of the Twinkies. They're hitting 1,600 select Wal-Mart shelves.
Three days ahead of the nationwide return, we went to this Wal-Mart to find what Hostess is calling "The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever."
"That's awesome because she loves to snack on those," said Vickie Fleming.
Even though Hostess says it asked retailers to wait until Monday to start selling the iconic snack cakes, Wal-mart announced Friday that Twinkies were available at about 1,600 stores and now the shoppers are taking advantage.
"I want to buy some for our grandchildren today," said Hasmukh Shah. "At least five."
"About a year ago," Vickie's daughter Kyleigh said when asked when the last time she had a Twinkie.
It's been eight months since you've been available to walk out of the store with a box of Twinkies. They haven't been on the shelves since November when Hostess filed for bankruptcy."
"She's been a little sad," said Vickie.
"It felt like forever there's nothing that beats the quality of hostess," said Jeff Johnson.
Now hostess group has been bought out by private equity groups.
"Now she'll have her favorite snack back," said Vickie.
"I like the filling," said Kyleigh.
But not everyone missed the golden sponge cake with creamy filling.
"I didn't even know they were gone," said Gina Reinhard. "I've probably eaten one in my entire life."
But for the regular Twinkie eaters...
"Occasionally a couple times a month probably," said Johnson.
...This is a beautiful day in Twinkie history.
"I love Twinkies," said Kyleigh.
UNDATED (AP) -- Twinkies are making a come back, and this time, they're here to stay a lot longer.
The new maker of Twinkies say the snack cake will have a shelf life of 45 days.
That's nearly 3 weeks longer than the previous maker's 26-day shelf life.
Twinkies will be back on store shelves on July 15.
