Twinkies back on store shelves

One of America’s favorite snack food will be back on store shelves July 15. However, Wal-Mart stocked their shelves to sell the product July 12.

Twinkies and other snack products have not been made or sold since November 2012, when Hostess Brands Inc. filed for bankruptcy to liquidate its 82-year-old business following a company strike.

A private equity group named Apollo Global Management bought Hostess out of bankruptcy for $410 million and changed the name to Hostess Brand LLC.

Wal-Mart is selling Twinkies in an exclusive collectible box that says first batch” on the packaging and with a new tagline, “The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever.” They cost $2.98 for a box of 10.
