New Twinkies Starting to hit Miss. Stores
JACKSON, Miss.–Twinkies are starting to make their way on to shelves again around the Magnolia State.
After the company Hostess Brands bought the right to produce the cream-filled snacks, the date for their return was largely unknown outside of summer 2013.
On Sunday almost every Wal-Mart in the country had stocked Twinkies again on their shelves and calls around Mississippi, along with actually walking into stores, would confirm the notion.
The Grenada, Miss. Wal-Mart said they had sold out for a short time over the weekend when the snacks were reintroduced.
For now, it seems that the large retailers like Wal-Mart and Kroger’s are the only stores that have them in-stock.
Around a dozen calls to smaller chains from Jackson all the way to Biloxi produced zero stores that had them on the shelves, but most managers said it would only be a matter of time.
So for now if you’re looking for the cream-filled snacks in Mississippi, stick to the large chains for the immediate future, folks.
