Record Sales For The Return Of The Twinkie
(WKRC-TV)- The anticipation for the return of Twinkies to store shelves hit a fever pitch.
Now that they've been back in stores, retailers say they can't keep them in stock.
Hostess stopped selling Twinkies nearly 8 months ago, when the former owner shut down production and said it was going out of business.
Hostess is under new ownership.
The Twinkies are a bit smaller than before, but that hasn't shrunk their popularity.
Hostess says sales of its products are seven times greater than previous historic levels and orders are three to six times greater than its production capacity.
