Twinkies return to store shelves with new owners, tweaked recipe
It’s finally here; the Twinkie is back on store shelves Monday.
After eight months, new ownership and a few tweaks to the recipe have the Hotess snack back in stores with a longer shelf life to boot.
Other favorites are also returning, like Ding Dongs, now owned by private equity firms Apollo Global Management and C. Dean Metropoulous & Co.
They bought the brands for $410 million after Hostess shut down for labor band financial troubles in November.
The Chicago Tribune reported the union is gone, so are many of the jobs but the Schiller Park bakery is still turning out the treats.
