New Twinkies Are Going To Be Smaller And Have A Longer Shelf Life

    Twinkies are back today! Here are three changes that have been made.

    Twinkies returned to shelves Monday for the first time since November after Hostess went bankrupt last year. The new Twinkies will have fewer calories, weigh less, and have a longer shelf life. A Hostess spokeswoman told the Associated Press the change in size was made "mid-2012" by the predecessor company just before it went bankrupt, and the change in shelf life was made in November. The price, however, remains the same, although retailers may charge a different fee.
