Twinkies return to shelves at Walmart

By James Kust. CREATED Jul 12, 2013

MILWAUKEE -- Twinkies are making a comeback, and now one store says they're offering them to customers three days earlier than planned.

Walmart stores have twinkies on the shelves today, according to a report from CNBC. Hostess is planning to roll out the revamped snack cake nationwide on July 15.

Twinkies were removed from stores in late 2012 after a New York bankruptcy "ordered Hostess to liquidate". That liquidation led to 15,000 employees losing their jobs.
