Twinkies To Return to Store Shelves On Monday
Originally published on Wed July 10, 2013 7:03 am
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
And today's last word in business is one of our favorite subjects: Twinkie resurrection.
The yellow spongy cakes will be back on store shelves this Monday. There had been a run on Twinkies following the bankruptcy of Hostess, Twinkies' parent company.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Well, a new firm bought the rights to make Hostess snacks, and now they'll be coming back with an even longer shelf-life than before. Despite their reputation for an eternal shelf-life, Twinkies do actually expire. The new run of Twinkies will apparently be fresh for 45 days, though. That's up from a previous shelf life of 26 days.
