Twinkies hit the market on April 6, 1930. On November 16, 2012, Hostess filed for bankruptcy and Twinkies were slated to cease production. They made their triumphant return on July 15, 2013 and we are incredibly grateful. In general, we tend to support healthy eating and an active lifestyle but we also know that indulging occasionally (in a Twinkie, or otherwise) is part of living a balanced life with plenty of joy, and ladies, Twinkies definitely bring joy. Because as Tom Brady said, “Life is like a twinkie; we all want the fluffy golden outside, but it’s the crème filling that really matters.”
For your enjoyment today, we’re celebrating the return of the Twinkie with 10 facts you may not know about this fluffy, delectable treat!
