Twinkies to Make Triumphant Return

    CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 11:  A customer heads to the checkout with a shopping cart loaded with Hostess snacks at a Jewel-Osco grocery store on December 11, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois. The Jewel-Osco grocery store chain purchased the last shipment of 20,000 boxes of Hostess products and put them on sale in their stores throughout the Chicago area today.

    After a long hiatus from supermarket shelves, Twinkies will make their way back to grocery stores next month. The sugary snack food is set to reappear on July 15 after its parent company, Hostess, went through a wrenching Chapter 11 bankruptcy process and sold off portions of its business to various competitors. Other treats, including CupCakes and Donettes, are also expected to make a comeback. Boxes of Twinkies will be emblazoned with the tag line, ‘‘The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever.’’
