Twinkies are getting closer to your mouth!

Posted: Updated:

If you're still hanging on to the last couple of Twinkies from that box you bought last year, well you can throw them out. Twinkies are back!

Hostess has shipped Twinkies out all over the country and local grocery distributors have them in hand, but it may be a few days before they're in your hand.

Brookshires said they have them in their warehouse and will soon make shelf space once again for all the Hostess snacks. Some Walmart and Kroger stores already have them on their shelves.

The Twinkies will be slightly smaller than they used to be, which translates to fewer calories per golden sponge-cake cream-filled treat.

The shelf life has nearly doubled from 26 days to 45, though the company has declined to comment on how that is being accomplished.

CupCakes, Zingers, Donettes, HoHos and Ding Dongs are also all making a comeback.
