Hostess’ Twinkies Saved, Back on Shelves by July 15 (VIDEO)

After looking like they might vanish forever, your favorite bright yellow snack cake is officially on the rebound. According to Hostess’ website, Twinkies will be back on supermarket shelves by mid July.

For a brief moment, snack food afficionados were in a panic: Hostess, the makers of Twinkies and a host of other American classics, had declared bankruptcy and were at risk of disappearing from shelves for ever. But, this being America, private equity stepped in and saved the day: 

Apollo Group Management and Metropoulos & Co. bought the snack food portion of Hostess and plan to breathe life back into the iconic cakes.
