That is good, a little less sugar.

My poor kids have never had one. In fact, a few months ago I asked my 8 year old to tell me what Wall-E was about since I'd never seen it. He described the plot to me, including telling me that Wall-E had a roach he kept in a hot dog. I started watching it with him and had to tell him that the roach lives in a Twinkie, not a hot dog. I had to give all of my kids a lesson on what a Twinkie is.

Less sugar and calories is always good.

LMAO!! My kids were introduced to Twinkies about a year ago after the first time they watched Ghostbusters, and the "imagine this twinkie represents all the psychkenetic energy in the New York area..." line. They automatically wanted to know what a Twinkie was. so we made a trip to the gas station They were devastated when Hostess when out of business. But that was mostly due to the Donettes. What was Santa going to leave in their stockings if there were no donettes?

Won't be buying twinkies here. We try real hard to avoid GMO products and that's one big package of GMO.

Why, of course it is? Did you tour the plant to? I went to Marshall elementary school in the 60's.

I honestly don't think my boys have ever had a Twinkie, but I am glad the Donettes are coming back. Other brands were just not the same.
