Twinkies, the iconic yellow US dessert, are being relaunched and returning to shelves of American stores nationwide official on July 15, a spokeswoman for Hostess said, but Wal-Mart stocked their shelves early over the weekend. The revival of the Twinkie comes after a bruising bankruptcy last year and the subsequent liquidation of Hostess, an 82-year-old baking goods firm known for a line of low-cost but high-calorie offerings that have long been a mainstay in American kitchens.
