    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The new owner of Hostess Brands Inc's snack cakes hopes to have Twinkies back on U.S. store shelves by this summer, according to a member of the purchasing group.

    Before the recent struggle I couldn't actually FIND them sold anywhere except for the commissary - kind of hard to buy something that isn't stocked at all. Might be part of hte problem - they're a classic but availability is highly limited.

    Not like I need to eat 12 twinkies anyway.

    Smoke a joint. Then you will need to eat 12 dozen of them. That's pretty gross, too..... Ohhh, bad pun. LOL.

    I don't think the twinkies are into that sort of thing.

    Woohoo!
    I don't eat that type of stuff very often, but when I want it, Hostess is the brand I like. Not so much the twinkies, but the little chocolate covered donuts, and their coffee cake snack.

    I know several musicians that are going through withdrawal, so they will be happy to see them back on the shelves.

    I thought it was funny that people were paying $50 bucks a box for twinkies and never stopped to realize that the brand would be back. They thought twinkies were going away forever...

    There is a demand for twinkies - hence twinkies will be produced.

    Yeah, the previous company had all sorts of problems stretching back many years. They failed to adapt to changing times and economic downturn. But a product in demand will be produced by somebody, somewhere.
