Hostess Sales

Twinkies fans, rejoice!  The popular snack cakes could be back on shelves by this summer, along with a return of Wonder Bread.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig explains why:

A bankruptcy judge approving the $410 million sale of Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Ho Hos and other brands to Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co., the owners of fast-food chains Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., and Pabst beer.

(Commercial) “When I’m not too busy being a big-time Hollywood phony, I like to come out here to Davenport, sit on my favorite log and crack open an ice-cold Old Milwaukee.”

Company Principal Evan Metropoulos says he’s interested in getting actor Will Ferrell on-board as a pitchman as he aims to have the snacks back in stores by June.  Metropoulos also suggesting new flavors could be in the offing.
