Hostess Picks Apollo-Led Group as New Owner of Twinkies - NYTimes.com

Mark Lennihan/Associated Press







“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to bring back ‘America’s favorite snack,’” Dean Metropoulos, the founder and chief executive of the firm that bears his name, said in a statement. “This transaction will ensure the beloved Hostess snack cakes can continue to be enjoyed for years to come. We look forward to returning the iconic Hostess products, including Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and HoHos, to consumers as soon as possible.”


Thank you!

I've switched to Little Debbies except for Twinkies. Glad to see they will be back.
I do love the occasional twinkie.

Cool, time to break out the deep fryer! (They are even better deep fried and wrapped in bacon)
