According to Michael Cramer, executive vice president of Hostess Brands LLC who told NBC News on Thursday "We expect to be making and selling Twinkies in July."
When Twinkies went out of production last November because it’s owners declared bankruptcy it was like junk food Armageddon. Store shelves were cleared by collectors and goodie gourmets within hours of the news last year.
And the great news today is the new company, Hostess Brands, LLC, will start hiring this weekend to resume operations with 200 employees at the Dolly Madison Bakery in Columbus, Ga., one of the locations shuttered in November.
Twinkies will once again be within our guilty reach, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Disaster adverted for junk food dogs nationally. The local economy will once again be stimulated thanks to those sweet gushy treats that health food advocates scorn, but most Americans love – if only secretly!
Do you think people will line up at liquor stores and supermarkets throughout the nation to be the first to sample those soft wonders once again when they’re available?
Time for me to walk on down the road…
