When Twinkies make their way back onto store shelves and Hostess fans rejoice, they will be more or less just as they were before the company went belly up. However, one change to the Twinkie formula is important to note.
Instead of the traditional 26-day shelf life, Twinkies will now be good for 45 days, the Associated Press reports. That's quite a jump, but actually something Hostess was working on before they went bankrupt, according to spokeswoman Hannah Arnold. She says the company introduced the longer-lasting cakes on November 1, 2012, but production stopped weeks later.
The company also plans to begin freezing some of its cakes before delivering them to stores, allowing the retailers who request them to use their own expiration dates. Hostess says freezing won't ruin the flavor of the treats, though they aren't saying which retailers have requested them.

Trying to kill them has only made them stronger.
So they can last 10,000 years instead of the usual 5,000?
I watched Ghost Rider 2 and the villain who rots everything he touches was trying to eat. Everything turned to dust except for the Twinkies...
Time to stuff my bugout bag with frozen Twinkies.
I bought them a few months before they went out of business.
I've always put them in my freezer and ate them when I had the urge. 6 months in the freezer is no big deal.
Its not as if they're going to lose their nutritional value.
You still have a chance to taste a Twinkie...
i thought they stopped making twinkies in 1974 and have just been selling off overproduction stocks since because twinkies have a half life longer than uranium
Just the mere fact that they will no longer be stained with union labor will make them taste better.
It's not the stain, it's the filling.
Okay, but I don’t think you could get that metallic-tasting filling through an airport metal detector.
Why would I bother, from the pictures on the news they look like a dog turd.
The only thing they are good for is to make people shoot queers!
I don’t shoot them I just beat the shit out of them!
The darn things already have a half life of 50 years.
One can only imagine the preservatives used to give them even more shelf life. . .
I’m sure the company thinks they are doing a good thing - - - except they have to know they’re not, really - - -
The forever food has now become the infinity food.
try the pink snoball if it ever comes back
Hostess is dead but not the recipes
Twinkies live on, with more vital life force than ever before.
I suggest we make peace with them while we still can.
I for one welcome our cream-filled overlords
I thought old Twinkies had a longer half life?
