"Twinkies are Back!"


Cape Coral, Florida, US
          

After almost a year I got to eat a Twinkie again yesterday! Maybe it's just me, but they seem a tad different. I found them somewhat smaller and the texture seemed slightly different as well. The yellow sponge area seemed a bit chewier than the old ones. Other than that, they taste like the originals!

p.s. I would post a picture but my hands are still sticky after eating several Twinkies...

The current producers claim that the change in size and expiration date was instituted by the Interstate Bakery people prior to bankruptcy.
Expiration date is now 45 days after production and the new owners will produce your order without a date stamp and freeze it for you so you can add your own date later.

Interesting! I wonder if the new texture is a result of this?

p.s. I also noticed it has more cream filling than the original Twinkie.

I had the same feeling - that the new ones are not the same as the old ones, not as good in my opinion...

While working my way through box # 2, I noticed that some in the same box have more cream filling than others. The Twinkies of old were pretty uniform in that respect. Also, I noticed that these new Twinkies are shaped somewhat differently than the old ones. These new ones are narrower on one end, wider on the other.

p.s. New diet and exercise program starting soon to rid myself of the extra weight gained by these Twinkies.

It is just the Twinkies that have been brought back? When I was a little kid I loved the Sno Balls. Never cared for Twinkies. Haven't seen either for 50 years however.
The irregular shape is probably due to early production adjustments not completed but also it could be a new work force that never made them or adjusted the production machines. The experienced workers were all fired.

I haven't seen Sno Balls out there yet. My guess is that they are probably seeing how well Twinkies do before releasing anything else. I hope they can get Twinkies back to what they were like before.

They seem to be selling very well.
I was at the Supermarket yesterday and noticed that the large end cab shelf for Twinkies was empty.
They had Cupcakes though.

Best Regards,
Marty
