Twinkies are back!

Posted:

Have you been missing a certain cream-filled guilty pleasure in your life for about the past eight months?

Don't worry... the Twinkie is back!

FOX 28's Molly Jirasek asked shoppers if the classic cake still tastes the same.

Marco Magallon said, "I'm really excited that Twinkies are back from Hostess."

Perhaps the rumors are true, Twinkies really can survive anything, even a corporate apocalypse.

Under new ownership Hostess snacks are back on shelves today,

At Martin's Supermarket, many had no idea they were back, but once I told them... they had one thing in mind.

The cake's are a little different. The shelf-life went from 26 days to 45.

They also may be a bit smaller than you remember.

The new owners of Hostess say the previous company made them smaller as it was struggling to avoid bankruptcy. So the big question is... do they taste the same?

Marco Magallon: "Actually haven't had one in like a year... Does it taste the same?

Magallon said, "Tastes better! Nothin' like delayed gratification!"

"I decided to be nice and bring some Twinkies back to the studio for everyone to have", said FOX28's Molly Jirasek. "I set them down in the break room for just a second, and I came back..none left for me."
