snacks are back


Friday, July 12, 2013


Not the greatest news for our waistlines but I would buy them and stick them in the freezer for when I wanted a snack. My favorite as a kid was snowballs.

NEW YORK (AP) Twinkies are making an early comeback at Wal-Mart stores, and they won't be frozen beforehand.


The world's largest retailer says it is selling the snack cakes at about 1,600 stores starting Friday and that about 3,000 of its 4,000 U.S. stores should have them by Sunday morning, a day before Hostess had said the spongy yellow cakes would start hitting shelves nationwide.

By late next week, stores will also have Hostess Mini Muffins and fried Fruit Pies, said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Veronica Marshall. Coffee Cakes, Ho Hos, Orange CupCakes, Suzy Qs and Zingers will be available by August.

Sno-Balls will arrive in the fall.

    I'm not a big fan, but for those of you that are, I'm glad they are back. They are certainly an american tradition!

    Oh no! Orange cupcakes! I love them. I like the rest, too. I just have to look the other way when I pass them by in the store. emoticon = emoticon for me. Hard to stop at one.

Thanks for the warning! LOL!
