Well, That Was Fast: Twinkies Are Returning

Less than six months after America fake-mourned the death of the Twinkie, we now learn the iconic, cream-filled sponge cakes are returning. Wait, what? It's a junk-food miracle!

The new owners of the Hostess brand plan to get Twinkies back on shelves by the end of July. And fret not--the recipe will remain the same as you remember it. "Everything will be as delicious and fattening as it always was," Hostess exec Michael Cramer told NBC News. Other classic Hostess snacks will follow, hopefully after bathing-suit season.
