I really don't know how America survived but some Southern Tier residents are excited about the return of the classic Twinkies to store shelves on July 15th.

When Hostess, the parent company of Twinkies, Ho Ho's and other artery-clogging snacks, grabbed weeks of national news headlines when they declared bankruptcy last year.

When Twinkies return to store shelves, the boxes will play on the free publicity it received with the words:  “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever.”

According to thefw.com, the price of a box of the returning Twinkies will be unchanged.

My co-workers are wondering when the former Hostess Sno Balls will make a return.  It was pointed out to me that it's all about moderation and life is too short.

Excitement is in the air.  Can you feel it?
