Jul 10, 2013 — When Twinkies hit the stores again on July 15, their shelf life will be nearly twice as long as it used to be: 45 days. (We were surprised it wasn't longer.) There's a whole lot of food science employed to help the creme-filled cake defy the laws of baked-good longevity.
Nov 16, 2012 — In the interest of science, we offer some ideas for people who are hoarding Twinkies now that Hostess has announced it is going out of business. And none of them involve eating.
Jan 12, 2012 — When we heard the news about the Hostess bankruptcy and the possible demise of the Twinkie, we got to thinking about just how wonderful Twinkies are. Here are some ways to experience the joy of Twinkies without eating them.
Jun 24, 2013 — After disappearing when Hostess went into bankruptcy last year, the snack cakes that supposedly last forever are now really going to live on. New owners are bringing them back.
Nov 19, 2012 — According to a bankruptcy judge, Hostess and the major union representing its workers need to try to mediate their differences before the company can be liquidated. So maybe the company's taste treats won't disappear anytime soon.
Nov 16, 2012 — Already in bankruptcy protection, the company has also been dealing with a nationwide strike. It says it can't go on. So 18,500 jobs are being eliminated. And some iconic taste treats may soon be scarce.
