The good news for Hostess Twinkies lovers? They are coming back to stores on July 15th, nearly a year after Hostess shut down in bankruptcy.
The bad news? Some of the cake treats will be frozen before they are shipped, something that true fans are not happy about.
Reason For Freezing Twinkies
If they are shipped fresh, Hostess says, the have a shelf life of only 30 days. Freezing them will extend the Twinkies' shelf life, the company claims.
However, Hostess says many Twinkies will still be shipped fresh, to appease fans.
The company says freezing them will not affect taste or consistency, and will appear to be identical to the iconic Twinkies that many people loved (but few people purchased) for decades.
Perhaps the biggest surprise here is that Twinkies have a short shelf life. You probably thought Twinkies could last 100 years, and still be edible.
