Meanwhile, production now only takes place in four bakery plants instead of 11, and Hostess will be delivering only to warehouses who then deliver to the stores. Which means it might be easier for you to find those Twinkies in your local bodega.
We may have to wait until July 15, but Seban promises that the Twinkies are here to stay, especially since the company is looking at different variations, like a “crunchy” Twinkie (a store-bought version of the deep-fried Twinkie, we imagine), plus other options like gluten-free, added fiber, low-sugar, and low-sodium versions. Health aside, Seban also says they’re playing with different flavors. “We can have some fun with that mixture,” he said. Unfortunately, he does say that Twinkies only last 45 days, but he’s obviously never seen Wall-E.
