America, Rejoice! We Have Twinkies!

America, Rejoice! We Have Twinkies!

A puff of white smoke emerged from the bakery, announcing to the Nation’s faithful: “Habemus Twinkies!” America’s iconic snack has returned. Let joy be unconfined. Let there be dancing in the streets, drinking in the saloons, and snacking in the parlor.

Actually, it’s a very mixed blessing:

“Twinkies are back, but most jobs are not,” Chris Isidore and James O’Tool, CNN Money

“Hostess Twinkies return to stores, but unionized jobs disappear,” Akane Otani, Christian  Science Monitor

“In the Future, Your Twinkies May Be Frozen,” Samantha Grossman, TIME

“New Twinkies are smaller,” Chris Isidore, CNN Money

“How Did Twinkies Double Their Lives?” Steve Ettlinger, The Atlantic

“The Rebirth of Twinkies: Now for Dudes — and Suddenly Everywhere,” Josh Sanburn, TIME
