Hostess: Twinkies will return to stores on July 15
Twinkies will return this summer to a convenience store near you, Hostess said.
Hostess, which is recovering from a crippling bankruptcy, plans to restock shelves with an assortment of its notorious treats, including Twinkies, CupCakes and Donettes, starting on July 15.
As talks with Union leaders stalled, the company announced in November 2012 it’s intentions to liquidate. Within a few hours of the announcement, stores sold out of the company’s most popular treats.
Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management together purchased the rights to several of the iconic brands, and they will re-launch several under the reorganized Hostess company.
The sweet’s boxes will now drape “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever” tag line across its packaging.
