Twinkies are back, and will last longer than ever before

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Twinkies will be back on shelves next week, and the company says they'll last longer than ever before. Hostess says the popular spongy yellow cakes will have a shelf life of 45 days when they start hitting stores again next Monday. That's nearly three weeks longer than the 26 days their previous owner had stated as the shelf life for Twinkies. A company representative says the change was made before the company went bankrupt, but they went out of business before they could be introduced. The company won't say what changes were made to the recipe to make them last longer.
